JSCC to host grand reopening event

Jackson State Community College will be returning classes to an in-person format this fall. To celebrate this occasion, the college will be hosting a “grand reopening” on Saturday, July 31. The event will be held in the Student Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the college’s main campus in Jackson.

“We are so excited to be bringing students back to campus this fall,” said Dr. Kyle Barron, Vice President of Student Services. “While many students have done well in the online environment over the past year, many students simply need the personal interaction that cannot be replicated in a virtual setting.”

The event will allow prospective students to complete the application and registration process in a single day. You can apply for admission, complete your FAFSA, meet with an advisor, register for classes, get your student ID and parking pass, buy books, and tour the campus.

“Many JSCC students have been away from campus for so long, and this is a great opportunity to welcome them back and to get excited about getting back in class,” said Barron.

CARES Act funding is available for anyone who has never attended JSCC before. A new student can have tuition paid for two classes up to eight credit hours, and this will be in addition to any financial aid a student may receive for the semester. Additional funding may be used for other related expenses such as books and supplies.

Barron notes that there has never been a better time to attend college. There are funds available to help most anyone pay for tuition.
