Frequently Asked Questions
If you previously attended JSU within the past two terms, no action is needed. If you have not attended JSU in more than two terms, you will need to complete a "Readmission Application,” which is FREE. There is no fee for this application. If you attended any college or university after leaving JSU, you will need to send official transcripts from all institutions attended.
If you need assistance completing the Readmission Application, please contact the Office of Admissions 256-782-5268.
Returning students may qualify for federal student aid. To determine eligibility, complete the current year’s FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and have it sent to JSU (school code: 001020). Once completed and submitted, a Student Aid Report, which indicates a student’s potential eligibility, will be generated. JSU will receive the FAFSA within 3-5 business days and will reach out via the student’s JSU email regarding any outstanding requirements and/or the financial aid offer.
Once readmitted, returning students are also encouraged to complete the JSU’s Competitive Scholarship Application, on MyJaxState. The application opens September 1 and closes February 1.
