Please read about information on JSU email, Visa types, Immigration process, final transcript submission, housing options, expenses you need to be prepared for, placement tests you may have to complete. The guide will also help you with information on what to expect at the port of entry when you arrive in the United States, travelling to JSU, reporting to the international office, orientation, health insurance requirement, request to change program, tuition and fees, employment information and information on disability services.

 

 

  • Students should be prepared to stay in a hotel upon arrival at least for one night. Hotel costs will be the responsibility of the student.  (Some students may have to stay in the hotel for more than one night if they do not have a confirmed room assignment.)

  • Late Arrival can result in a student unable to enroll, or secure a housing assignment.
