To complete the application process, students must apply and submit the following documents:

Former Dual Enrollment and Accelerated High School students must submit a final high school transcript before enrolling as a college student at Jefferson State.

Transcripts from your home institution are not required.


Applicants who attended high school, college or received a GED outside the state of Alabama may be assessed out-of-state tuition. For additional information, please review the Certification of Eligibility for In-State Residency Form.

Transient Letter

A transient letter must be received in Enrollment Services before a transient student can register. The transient letter must list all JSCC courses the student is eligible to take, equivalent courses at home institution, and the term the student plans to attend. This letter guarantees the transferability of courses taken at Jefferson State Community College to the student’s home institution. Students may submit transient letters in person, by mail, fax or e-mail as a PDF.  Jefferson State takes no responsibility if you enroll in courses that are not listed on your transient letter.

Financial Aid

Transient students are not eligible for financial aid at Jefferson State.
