Jacksonville State University is a great school. They have very knowledgeable faculty and staff. They give real word scenarios that will help you once you graduate. They are also flexible if you want to attend school online or on campus. My overall experience with JSU was wonderful. Go Gamecocks!!!!

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

Overall, I would say that the program is good. The classes are not too difficult if one sets enough time to studying. I chose the program because I wanted in-person classes to meet other people in the business community. The program also has forums where local leaders come and speak about their business models. This is a great networking opportunity.

Jacksonville State is a decent small college with a large university price tag. I encountered a few great faculty members who truly care about their students' education. Though, if you're looking for a serious academic school, I would look elsewhere. The university has spent millions of dollars in the past few years on a new football stadium, big screen tv's, and soon a new recreation center while academic buildings are in shambles. Its atrocious disregard for the central purpose of a university, education, is appalling. If you're just looking to have fun in a small town for a few years, and don't mind the crumbling infrastucture, you might enjoy Jacksonville.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

Jacksonville State University in Alabama is the friendliest campus in the SOUTH! When I started my application all the way to graduation I was helped every step of the way. I have had support and love from the different staff members even into my graduate degree at another University!

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my graduate program is the great faculty support. They treat my peers and I as if they want us to succeed. Never have I felt that eerie feeling that you feel when you know that a professor is only there for a paycheck. I feel as if they are rooting for my success just as my parents are. The professors are very hands on with the students' learning and progress. The cons are that the area is extremely rural and the school buildings could use a bit of an upgrade.
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Counselor Education program faculty have been excellent. Not a lot of opportunities for GA/GTA positions or graduate scholarships. Financial aid office hasn't been friendly, but the program staff and professors go above and beyond.
