For a complete list of requirements for First Time Freshmen, review the Admissions Procedures in the Undergraduate Catalog.
- Student must complete the JSU admissions application.
- Student must submit the required $35 application fee.*
- Student must request official high school transcripts to be sent directly from a school administrator. Transcripts may be mail, emailed to email@example.com, or sent via an electronic service (Parchment, Send.edu, etc.)
- We ask that you please submit one transcript through the junior year when a student applies for admission and a final transcript after the student graduates. Jacksonville State University requires the date of graduation and final GPA on the final transcript. JSU will accept ACT/SAT test scores from the official high school transcript.
*Application Fee Waivers - JSU will accept requests to waive the $35 admissions application fee for first year students who have a financial need. Requests including ACT/CollegeBoard fee waivers, NACAC fee waivers, and letters/emails from a high school administrator or counselor will be accepted. Students may complete an admissions application and select that they will request a fee waiver before submitting their application. Documentation of that request will be added as a supplemental item to complete the application. Students applying from Title I schools will automatically have their application fee waived.
