Step 3: Send Immunization Record

All students born after December 1956 who plan to attend classes on one of our campuses must submit proof of immunization compliance for measles, mumps, and rubella. Online students are exempt.  

In addition to the immunization requirement, international students are required to have two screening tests for tuberculosis exposure once arriving to the country: A IGRA blood test and a chest X ray. These tests must be performed in the United States not more than six weeks before the start of classes. Test performed outside of the United States cannot be accepted.

Housing applications are available at www.jsums.edu/housing. 听The office is located in Campbell College Suites-North and the contact number for Housing is (601) 979-2326 or (601) 979-0596.

Step 5: New Student Orientation/Register for Classes

If you are a traditional readmit student taking a class online or on campus, you will need to complete New Student Orientation before registering for classes. For more information regarding New Student Orientation, please visit /orientation/. If you will be enrolled in an online program, please contact JSUOnline at (601) 979-0779.

Step 6: Complete Registration or Set Up Payment

“Completing Registration” is the phrase used to describe the Business Office acknowledgement or verification of how fees are to be paid for the current semester.  Once this information is "officially communicated" to the Business Office, we will “accept” the charges and payments for the current semester which in turn protects the student’s classes from being purged.

There are two ways to “officially communicate” with the Office of Financial Services

1.       The first and most popular way is via the Automatic Registration Complete process.  Once a student has selected his or her classes (along with housing and meal plan), the system will review all eligible accepted financial aid and if the remaining balance is less than $200, the students’ registration will be completed automatically.

2.       The second way to “officially communicate” is to enroll in the online payment plan.  The payment plan is based on the balance due being divided into four (4) installments.  The initial installment plus $100 (the deferment fee) is required to complete registration.  The remaining three (3) installments are due in 30-day increments. Late fees of $70 begins on the 1st day of class.

Students can verify their status by signing into their JSU PAWS account and following the steps below

1.       Select the “Student” tab.

2.       Select “Registration”

3.       Select “Fall Registration Service”

4.       Select “Check Registration Status”

5.       If registration is complete a congratulatory message will be displayed.

6.       If not, a message will display instructing you to your next required step.

 

Step 7: Get your Student Identification

To enhance the safety and security of the campus community, faculty, staff and students are required to obtain a University issued photo ID card. The University mandates that all faculty, staff, and students display his/her ID card visibly at all times while on campus. First-year students are able to obtain their ID after registration is complete (Step 8).

Step 8: Move-in-Day

Hundreds of JSU Students, faculty, staff, and alumni volunteer to help the newest Jacksonians and their parents move into the residence halls.  Please call (601) 979-4302 for more information on Move-In Day. 

Step 9: Welcome Week Experience

Welcome Week is a seven-day program that assists first-year students with the academic and social transition to college life. Building on 黑料天堂’s foundation, first-year students will connect with other students, faculty, and staff. All first-year students are expected to attend Fall Orientation/Welcome Week Activities. The week is a collaborative effort among the many departments under Student Success. For more information, please call (601) 979-1179.
