Complete the Online Application for Admissions


Your next step to becoming a Jones student is to complete the online Application for Admission. Once an admissions application has been processed, students will be mailed an admissions packet and receive an email and text from their Admissions Counselor. Initial acceptance into the college will be communicated to the email address and text #’s submitted within the student’s application along with being sent to the newly created Jones email.

Financial Aid


Completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a priority! The FAFSA is a tool used to determine your financial aid eligibility, including Pell grants and student loans, and should be filed (submitted) online at fafsa.ed.gov. It should be completed early, with the recommended deadline in June each year. Remember that the new award year begins every October 1st!

Connect with your Admissions Counselor


The transition to college can be difficult and intimidating at times! Once your application has been processed, your Admissions Counselor will reach out to you frequently through your Jones email account. They will guide you through admissions and financial aid process and create your class schedule. Keep in touch with your counselor and ask questions along the way.

Submit Your Transcripts


You will need to request an official copy of your final high school transcript to be sent to the Jones College Office of Admissions after graduation. Students are not fully admitted to Jones until all official transcripts have been received.

Submit your ACT score


Take the ACT/SAT and request scores be sent to Jones. Each college and university is assigned a college code that you will supply for ACT testing. The JCJC code is 2206. A Residual ACT through Jones is offered throughout the year. Contact the Terrell Tisdale Library at 601-477-4055 for testing dates or additional information.
