How do I Attend?

Students are admitted prior to the beginning of each semester. It is strongly recommended that you apply six to nine months prior to the expected date of enrollment. It is your responsibility to see that your high school or college transcript and ACT/SAT scores are submitted. Decisions regarding admissibility to the University will be made as soon as all necessary credentials are received in the Office of Admissions.

To view the requirements for admission to JSU, please choose which entry status is applicable for you from the options below.
