About Jacksonville State University

Where you’re going is a home away from home. Living on campus can be a very memorable element of your college experience. Our mission is to foster a vibrant living and learning-centered community that cultivates personal development, celebrates diversity, promotes leadership, and enhances the educational experience of each resident. At JSU, you will find that residence halls are in the middle of it all and convenient to your classes and campus activities.

More than seventy-nine percent of JSU students receive some form of financial aid. Over $80 million was awarded last year in scholarships, loans, grants, or campus employment. Our Student Financial Services staff is always ready to serve you and answer all of your questions.

You will make close friends and still meet someone new every day. At Jacksonville State University, we realize that your education and experiences are not strictly gained in a classroom. Campus involvement plays a tremendous role in developing not only your mind, but also you as a person. Share your voice by participating in he Student Government Association.

International students are an important part of campus life at Jacksonville State University. Over 200 international students from Europe, Asia, North and South America, Africa, and the Middle East, are enrolled here. Students are represented in University affairs through the International Student Organization, and through a seat in Student Government Council. International students and their cultures are formally recognized each year through International Week activities on campus. Informally, international students are involved in sports (especially soccer, tennis, and golf teams), student professional organizations, and clubs. 

The University strives to provide an environment in which international students can easily learn more about American society, and in which students from Alabama can learn about other societies. Jacksonville State University has shown a long commitment to an international environment on campus with the establishment in 1946 of one of the first International House Programs in the country. Today it continues in this tradition.
