Orientation and Registration

Welcome and congratulations on your decision to attend Jackson State Community College! All degree-seeking students attending JSCC are required to complete a Great Expectations orientation. Our orientation is designed to get you off to a great start by providing practical knowledge and JSCC specific information that will help you succeed.  

Online orientation will be a two step process:

  1. Complete an Great Expectations information session online or in person that will provide you with much of the information you will need to be successful at JSCC.
  2. Upon completion of the information session, you will be given specific courses and a PIN to register for your classes with help from JSCC staff.

We are still finalizing dates for upcoming Great Expecations orientation sessions.

We will also be sending email updates with that information to accepted students when the dates are finalized. In the coming weeks, you will be able to register here for the day and time that best meets your needs!

As a new or new transfer student at JSCC, you are bound to have questions. You can contact us at Please provide your full name, your JSCC identification number (J#) or date of birth, and a contact phone number and email in all communication with JSCC. If you have any issues signing up for or completing your online orientation, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to help! 

Is there anything else you can do before completing your online orientation? We are so glad you asked! To get a head start, you can go ahead and activate your netlogon and take our intake survey.

jWeb is the online portal that allows students to access online services and campus computers.  You will Plug into jWeb to register for classes, pay tuition, check your grades, and more!  Activation is required and you will need your campus ID # from your acceptance letter orientation invitation email in order to set-up your netlogon.  Once active, you can logon and get familiar with jWeb. See instructions below:

Please remember to write down your netlogon and password! You will use this information throughout your time at JSCC. You will also need it to complete your online information session as well as complete the intake survey.

Intake Survey

Once you have signed up for orientation and activated your netlogon, the last thing you can do to get ahead before orientation is to complete the intake survey. It will likely take 5-10 minutes to complete. Use your netlogon and password to log in to the survey.
