Counselor's Corner

Greetings School Counselors!

You are an important individual in a student's life - especially during the college search process. In order to better serve you, we have listed the requirements for students attending as a First Time Freshman. If you would like to have an Admissions Advisor from Jacksonville State University visit your school or, if you need to contact your assigned Admissions Advisor, please visit our Meet Your Admissions Advisor page and choose your location.

To assist you and your students in the financial aid processes, we have some podcasts available below to help students and parents.

If you're hosting an awards day program where scholarships can be presented please complete the Scholarship Event Information Form to let us know when your event is scheduled so we can make plans to attend.

Want to share feedback with us?  Give us your thoughts!  Thank you for all you do and if we can ever be of assistance, please let us know.

Counselors for First Time Freshmen

For a complete listing of requirements for First Time Freshmen, view the Admissions Procedures in the Undergraduate Catalogue.

To Apply:

  1. Student must fill out the JSU admissions application.
  2. Student must submit the required $35 application fee.  If applying with a fee waiver see the note below.
  3. Student must submit transcripts & standardized test scores to JSU

Counselors, 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 type of diploma and date of graduation on the final transcript.

The diploma type is used to fulfill admission requirements as well as determining if a student is eligible for certain grants. It is also helpful to have class rank and final grade point average if available.

We require that ACT/SAT Scores be sent to JSU from the testing agency.

Application Fee Waivers

JSU will accept an application fee waiver from ACT or CollegeBoard for those students who obtained a test score fee waiver from the agency.  A copy of that waiver which indicates the unique code from the agency must be sent to the Admissions Office in order for your application to be processed. When the Admissions Office receives the required fee waiver the application will be processed. In order for the Admissions Office to process the application applicants must meet the admission requirements for the term they are applying for. Applicants who submit an application and accompanying fee waiver and do not meet requirements at the time will not be processed until all admission requirements are met. All other requests, including NACAC fee waivers, will not be considered.
