New Student Orientation

Welcome and congratulations on your decision to attend Jackson State Community College!

All new and transfer degree-seeking students attending JSCC are required to complete a New Student 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.  

For your convenience, we are offering our orientation in two formats. You can choose to attend in-person, or complete orientation online with no set meeting time.

  • In-Person: You will come to the campus you selected at the date and time posted on the sign-up page. You will then attend a 30 minute information session followed by class selection and registering for classes.
  • Online: The morning of your orientation you will receive an email via your personal email account. The email will contain all the steps to access the online information session portion of orientation. You will also be sent a list of classes and your Advising PIN to enable you to register for classes. At the end of the information session, you will be able to access help videos and written instructions on how to pick your classes from the college schedule as well as how to register.

    You will need to watch the orientation videos and refer to the instructions in order to register.


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.
