Orientation and Registration

Register for an
Orientation Session Now!

Each session has limited seating options and will be open on a ‘First Come, First Serve’ basis. Once your college application is complete with Admissions, sign up early to reserve your spot.

All degree-seeking students attending Jackson State for the first time are required to complete an orientation. Our 4 hour orientation is designed to get you off to a good start by providing practical knowledge that will help you succeed. 

In orientation, you can:

  • Meet our faculty, staff, and other new students
  • Understand college expectations and resources
  • Meet with an academic advisor and register for your classes
  • Create your student photo ID

Plus, we can personally answer any questions you may have.  Please arrive at the McWherter Building 30 minutes early to Check-In.  We have Great Expectations that you will accomplish your educational goals at Jackson State.

Is there anything else you should do before attending your orientation? We are so glad you asked!
