We believe that by engaging new students early in their collegiate careers, they are more likely to remain in school and complete their degree. All new degree-seeking students will need to sign-up for an orientation session once they have received their letter of acceptance to attend Jackson State. These sessions help students learn about financial aid, student clubs, and all aspects of student expectations. Students also register for classes with the help of an academic advisor during the session.
Over 100 day and evening sessions will be conducted on the Jackson, Humboldt, Lexington, and Savannah campuses.
