Jackson State Community College


Students will have a chance to meet with their academic advisor at Jackson State during their Great Expectations orientation!

New Student Orientation

Jackson State orientations will be held every Tuesday and Friday this summer except the week of July 4th. Orientations are required for new students. In order to sign up for orientation, students will need to activate their jweb portal and their Net Logon account. At orientation, students will meet with their advisor, a financial aid representative and be able to register for classes. Orientations last three hours and 60 students per session are allowed. Students should make sure to meet at the McWherter building at least 30 minutes before the orientation begins.

Student Portal

jWeb is the portal that allows students to access services online through Jackson State. You can use jWeb to register for classes, pay tuition, check your grades, and more! You will need your campus ID # from your acceptance letter in order to set-up your account through NetLogon (here are some instructions for activating your account). Please make sure to activate your account before you attend your orientation.

Verification Process

Once a student’s FAFSA is received, a letter is sent out to the student the following day if documents need to be verified. When students receive that letter in the mail, Jackson State strongly encourages students to start submitting verification documents as soon as possible. Follow-up emails are sent to the students once a month and additional letters are sent out within 5-7 days if documents have discrepancies. Once students have submitted all documents, an award letter is sent in the mail to confirm. Students can also review their required documents through the Jweb portal.
