Academic Courses and Professors

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.

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.

Any unspent dining dollars on the residential plan will rollover to the fall semester.

How the Registration and Financial Process Works

  • All first year students are registered by their academic advisor for their first semester courses after high school graduation. No payment is due until the students are registered for class.
  • Payments are due the day before classes start. The bill for tuition will be available in the student POUNCE account. View important payment dates and contacts »

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.

After you pay the deposit, you will receive an email from University Housing about how to apply for on-campus housing for JJSP and for fall semester.
