A message from the Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management:

Welcome to Jacksonville State University, where You Matter!

As the Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, I am happy you joined the Gamecock family. Jax State is committed to helping students achieve their goals in the classroom and beyond. We want to let you know about services provided by the Office for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management that can help you get started.

The Office of Admissions supports Future Gamecocks through the enrollment process and will help you find your place on campus. The Financial Aid Office  will assist you with grants, loans, scholarships and more.  Are you Military or a Post-Traditional student?  Military & Post Traditional Student Services will assist you if you are not sure what resources you need.  They are committed to assisting you while you are pursuing your academic, personal, and professional goals here at Jax State. 

Students who fully immerse themselves in college are more likely to be successful academically, socially and personally.  The Dean of Students Office oversees more than 100 student organizations and multiple outlets geared towards your involvement including the Student Government Association, and Fraternity & Sorority Life and programs that support personal and professional development. I also encourage students to live on campus. Connected students are more likely to be successful, so be sure to check out residence living options through University Housing & Residence Life.

You Matter Shirts given to studentsI urge first-year students to stay active through University Recreation’s programs and services. Through UREC, students can participate in fitness programs such as Zumba, POUND, and yoga, and compete in competitive sports such as flag football, soccer, and basketball! Also available at the Recreation and Fitness Center is a rock-climbing wall, indoor and outdoor pool, social spaces, and indoor track.

We are prepared to help you through your Jax State experience, and we offer several services and programs that may be beneficial to you. Counseling Services offers free sessions in either one on one or group formats.   

Jax State strives to maintain an inclusive and equitable environment for all students. 

Community Standards and Student Ethics and Title IX uphold the general mission and goals of the institution, while recognizing and respecting the rights, privileges and responsibilities of all Jax State students. The University Police Department’s mission is to provide professional, proactive, and community-oriented service and protection.  They offer an array of services including directions, battery jump starts, and vehicle unlocking.  RMC/JSU Health Center is here to offer primary care, urgent care, physicals and more. 

Students, you make a difference in our community, and You Matter to us!

At JSU... You Matter!

The JSU Division of Student Affairs launched the You Matter campaign in Fall 2017 to convey its core principle that all students are deserving of respect and dignity as individuals.  Regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, age, status as an individual with a disability, protected veteran status, genetic information or political affiliation, students matter at JSU.  For students, the JSU Division of Student Affairs exists to assist you with personal needs, advocate for your voice, listen to your suggestions, and engage you through the higher education lifespan.
