Counselor's Corner

Greetings, School Counselor!

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

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

We value your feedback! Thank you for all you do! 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 Catalog.

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

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

Application Fee Waivers

JSU will accept requests to waive the $35 admissions application fee for first year students who have a financial need. Requests including ACT/CollegeBoard fee waivers, NACAC fee waivers, and letters/emails from a high school administrator or counselor will be accepted. Students may complete an admissions application and select that they will request a fee waiver before submitting their application. Documentation of that request will be added as a supplemental item to complete the application.
