Preview Day Schedule and Information

COVID - 19 Precautions

Jacksonville State University is taking steps to limit the spread of COVID-19 based on the recommendations of leading health officials to ensure the safety of our visitors, faculty, students, and staff. Masks are recommended on campus. If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, are awaiting test results, or feel ill, please reschedule your visit for another time.


The day will begin in one of four locations across campus. Your starting location is detailed in your pre-event email, along with a video explaining the layout of the day. Make sure to note where you will be checking in for the day, as there is not one central check-in location. Your pre-event email will also contain a link to your personalized QR code for check-in. Please have your QR code ready when you arrive. At Preview Day, you will be able to choose your own schedule which can include academic information, student organization/services information, a current student social, campus tours, and an admissions and financial aid information session. There will be optional open houses available as well. Check out the agenda for the day, below, so you can see what events are scheduled.


Four guests are allowed per student at Preview Days.


Plan to park in the lots in front of Angle Hall, the Theron Montgomery Building (TMB), the Recreation and Fitness Center, or behind Houston Cole Library (off of HWY 21 ). JSU Ambassadors will be stationed in these areas ready to direct you, once parked. See our campus map for more information!


Please note that lunch is not provided during Preview Day. Discounts will be offered at locations around Jacksonville for lunch and shopping!

Optional Sessions

There are several optional open houses you can attend to enhance your campus visit. These include our residence halls, international house, student success center, campus bookstore, and more. Check them all out on the agenda!

Comfort and Accessibility

Events take you across campus on Preview Days, so please dress comfortably and weather-appropriately as you will be walking outside to buildings across campus, regardless of weather. Our educational programs and facilities are accessible to people with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations can be provided at the request of guests and visitors with disabilities. If you need accommodations, please contact us directly at 256-782- 5260. We will do our best to accommodate your need!

Inclement Weather

Should there be any changes to the schedule due to weather related issues, you will be notified at your personal email address and information will be posted on the JSU website. The University consults with the local Emergency Management Agency office, the National Weather Service, and the Alabama Department of Transportation when making decisions on the operation of campus.
