First Year Live-On Exemption

First-year undergraduate students are required to live on campus inside the residence halls; however, we do allow students to request exemptions. If you are a student from Calhoun, Cherokee, Cleburne, Etowah, St. Clair, or Talladega county and do not wish to live on campus, we ask that you submit a request for exemption form online through THD Self Service, beginning October 10. Our preference deadline for exemptions is August 1. 

  • You will need your MyJaxState username and password to log onto THD Self Service
  • First-year residents are required to live on campus and are not eligible for cancellation unless the resident is no longer enrolled in classes at Jax State. Once a first-year student is assigned and accepts a key, they are no longer eligible for exemption  or cancellation.
  • Students may not request an exemption for the spring semester after they have lived on campus for the fall semester of the same academic year. 
  • First-year students switching to all online classes and/or students who are wanting to commute for the spring semester are not eligible for an exemption after living on campus during the fall semester.
