When Does My Priority Registration Window Open?

Not everyone is able to register for classes on the first day of early registration. Each student is assigned a registration window by classification, in which he or she can schedule an appointment to register for classes. You will receive a registration invitation the week prior to your registration window. Check your JSU student email for the invitation.

What Should I Expect During My Virtual Advising Appointment?
