Preview Day Schedule and Information

Check-in & Customized Schedule

The day will begin in one of three 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 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! 

Guests

Four guests are allowed per student at Preview Days. Guests will be given tickets to the football game! 

Parking

Free parking is located behind Houston Cole Library. With Preview Day also being a home football game day, there will be paid parking areas located across campus. You are welcome to pay to park in these lots if you would like. JSU Ambassadors will be stationed in these areas ready to direct you, once parked. See our campus map for more information!

Lunch

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

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.

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. If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, are awaiting test results, or feel ill, please reschedule your visit for another time.
