Space in the JJSP program is limited– to ensure small class sizes and special academic and social programming at no additional cost to you. Students who complete their contracts will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
After receiving your program invitation, please submit your acceptance agreement and enrollment deposit in your application portal. After, you will begin additional enrollment steps such as completing your online welcome, registering for orientation, submitting your NewJag Survey, and applying for housing. Please visit your portal for more information on these important enrollment steps.
Additionally, students will be billed for an AU Meal Plan (commuter or residential). The JJSP meal plan is unique to commuters and residential students. Commuting Students are provided one-swipe daily for use at Atrium or the JSAC food court [up to $8.00 value]. The meal plan for residential students provides the aforementioned lunch swipe plus dinner service Mondays-Thursdays at Atrium and $100 in dining dollars for weekend meals. Any unspent dining dollars on the residential plan will rollover to the fall semester.
JJSP students will be billed for 6 credit hours and summer fees (Term 3). Detailed information about tuition and fees »
How the Registration and Financial Process Works
Check in for Housing students is scheduled for Monday, June 24th.
ALL incoming students MUST attend an Orientation. The orientation designated specifically for JJSP will be on Tuesday, June 25th.
As part of the JJSP learning community, you will enroll in 6 credit hours for 5 weeks this summer to get a jumpstart on college! These courses are held Monday – Thursday 9:00AM – 3:00PM and Friday (experiential learning/fieldtrip days). Attendance is important, as each day is worth 4 days in a regular term. The professors selected for JJSP have a proven track-record of successful teaching and student-centeredness. They will plan in class and out of class activities for you.
After classes are over, you are free to use the Academic Success Center for homework/study help or academic coaching. The Writing Center will be open (virtually) for tutoring in the afternoons and evenings. Think of college as your job - try to get everything done during the day so you can enjoy your evenings.
NOTE: Academic Advisement creates course schedules for all First-Year students. After completing your JAG survey, your Advisor will place you in courses that align with your major and interests.
First-year students are allowed to live in the residence halls. Living on campus is convenient, plus you will be able to meet other students and take advantage of the many resources and services available to you.
As Augusta University’s oldest and largest Learning Community, JJSP students will live on one hall, will have a designated RA and mentors assigned to assist you in your transition to college and special summer programming.
