I took my act I had average grades in high school . Got a 23 on my act if you get a 22 you get a full ride. But they oretty much let anyone in even if you have a 15 . Just apply and you are in application is free so why not .

When I first attended in 1974 they were theJan 13 2014Accounting
When I first attended in 1974 they were the only college I could afford locally. Now that I'm a returning student(trying to better my career) and I didn't want to go to the trouble of transferring anywhere else. After my experience with them now, I'm planning to drop out and focus on something else to do. The drop out rate should be high for this university.
ACT: 16 Female

I just played the piano and sanged with other students. I would reccommend that students get involved in an organization that interest them and not to join an organization just for the fun of it.
Getting into JSU is easyJun 07 2010Accounting
Getting into JSU is easy. 17 on the ACT. However, once you are in JSU you can rewrite your story. That is the beauty about an HBCU. You may come in not knowing too much. But with hard work you can walk out a shining star and be able to compete with the best and the brightest. The same books that the major colleges use are the same at Jackson State. College of Business (AACSB Accredited) ~~~~Same people who accredit the business schools at Harvard, Yale, MIT, Princeton, Columbia, University of Texas, Texas A&M, USC, Berkeley, Stanford, LSU, Millsaps, Ole Miss, MS State, Michigan State, etc. Need I name more.
