Alright this is Amie Knight I am the.assistant director of jumpstart dual.enrollment program at JSU and.Amanda Kughn is joining me she is the.lead processor so she is the person that.actually processes, as well as her team,.your application when you start to join.the dual enrollment program so we're.just going to kind of walk you through.your first steps and the first thing you.want to do is go to JSU.edu, and over.to the right you're gonna find this.beautiful magnifying glass that you can.search all kinds of things with JSU but.we're gonna search dual enrollment there,.it's already on our screen there, and.this is going to take you to our dual.enrollment page this is a website you.need to become pretty familiar with and.if you scroll down you're gonna see a.red button that says apply for admission.so this is going to take you to the.application and this is your very first.step for getting started with our.program. So, the very first thing you're.going to want to do is create an account..Okay, this is creating your admissions.account, okay? There is a distinction.between creating your admissions account.and filling out an application for the.term you're interested in and you're.gonna see that as we move along. Anything.with a red star beside it means you have.to put it in there so we're gonna go.ahead and just put in some information.so you can see how this is done..This email address that.Amanda's putting in right now I kind of.advise our students to not use their.high school - their school email, and.the reason why is because this.admissions account actually can be.carried on into their undergraduate.journey so once you graduate from high.school you're not gonna have that school.email anymore.so you want to put in something that's.personal, like your Gmail or your iCloud.or something like that..Can you talk to them a little bit about.why this particular section is important.when they're putting their birthday? Yes.when you are putting in your birthday.and that is used for a lot of different.codes here at JSU, it is part of how.you will sign into your accounts the.first time you get access to them, so.it's very important that this birthday.is correct or it will cause you issues.down the road. So we want to make sure we get that in there correct..And then your citizenship status, if you're not.familiar with what your citizenship.status should be I would suggest talking.to a parent or guardian and that you do.want to make sure that this is the.correct information..And then you'll notice your home phone has not got a red star beside it, but oftentimes when we.are calling we do need that.information because let's say for.example your phone is dead and I'm.trying to call you to let you know.you've gotten a scholarship or something.like that it's important to have two.points of contact, as well as the-.this has \"text me important updates\", I.would ask that you toggle that and make.that yes because it is yet another way I.can communicate with you, and to be honest.most of you do prefer text so it does.help that way as well. All right this.right here asks for an address outside.the US or Canada, if the address.that you currently reside in is outside.those parameters this is where you would.put it. To our knowledge, we should not.have a dual enrollment student that.would have an address outside of that, so.just make sure that you are filling out.your address in the correct area..This is gonna ask if you have ever attended.college before. What this is asking for.is maybe you've completed some dual.enrollment credit at another.university, that's when we would need to.know that but for the most part if.you're brand new to dual enrollment.you're going to put never attended.before. The anticipated entry term is the.the semester that you want to start your.dual enrollment classes this is always.kind of the academic program of interest,.always kind of concerns our students,.they think they're declaring a major.here, you do have time you can go back in.and change it, but what it does give us.is a little bit of information, so.Amanda's selected art and what that does.is if Dr. Johnson decides he wants to.host an open house at the art department.one night that gives us a little bit.information that we can contact you and.say \"hey you might want to attend this\", so.any information that you can give us,.again, that can be changed, will be.helpful. Alright, here, it is asking for.it's just giving you a brief.explanation of what jumpstart is.sometimes people stumble upon the wrong.application and they may start filling.it out and they get to this point and.don't realize that they're on a jump.start application so this is just to.kind of slow them down a little bit and.make sure that you are really interested.in jumpstart which is what we call our.dual enrollment program here at JSU so I.will click yes to that again it's going.to ask for a term of interest and then.we're coming down to the part where.you're going to set up your password and.you're going to confirm it I always tell.dual enrollment students at this point.take out a note, create a note in your.phone, or take out a piece of paper and.go ahead and write the personal email.address that you used as well as the.password that you created so you'll have.that somewhere. A lot of students are in.a one-to-one school system meaning they.are issued a device from their school so.they think it'll save on that device,.however, if you do have to turn that.device in, which you will at some point,.those passwords can be wiped so you want.to make sure that you're, you're writing.that down somewhere on something you.will be able to keep maybe your cell phone..As well as the password question. Okay so.we have now created our admissions.account, we have not however created an.application for the term that we want to.take classes for. That is a necessary.second step that you must do, so now.we're going to create a new application..I equate this with sometimes when you.want to start to play a game on your.phone you have to create an account.first and then you have to do another.application or another screen in order.to play the game, so now we're going in.and we're going to actually tell JSU.what semester we want to start, so.gonna complete- you're gonna choose jump.start, you're gonna notice that you have.two applications here, and Amanda can.you explain that a little bit about what.that is and why, what application we.should choose? Yes it is automatically.generating a possible freshman.application just based off of the.information that was in your account, we.did not ask for any graduation dates or.anything like that so at this point they.only know that you have created this.account and typically students who are.jumpstart do end up applying here in the.fall so it kind of goes ahead and just.puts that option out there for you but.you want to make sure that you choose.the jump start dual enrollment. This is.what you're looking for, not first-time.freshmen, even if this is the first time.you're taking classes here at JSU, this.is for if you have graduated from high.school and you are ready to become a.full time college student, so you will.choose that fall jumpstart dual.enrollment and then hit \"continue\". If for.some reason you do not see jumpstart you.can come down here and choose a.different term of program, and make that.correction, but right now we just want.to hit that jump start and then we're.going to hit continue. And I want to.clarify, a dual enrollment student.should never pay an application fee,.so if at some point you're going along.and it asks for an application fee, you.have completed the wrong application, so.make sure. The good thing about this is.as you go along a lot of what you've.filled out for your admissions account.it's already populated in this.application, it saved that information, so.you're going to be doing a lot of save and.continues. As you can see it saved all of.that information there, this is.another chance to, to make sure you've.got everything in there that you need..Again it's gonna ask you if I am allowed.to text you about any updates please.select yes so I can do so, if your.mailing address is different than your.permanent address, this might be if you.live your house actually is situated at.one address, but you might get your mail.a P.O. box,.this would be where you would switch.that to yes and it'll ask you for your.mailing address, but in this instance it.is the same, so we'll move forward..I'll have Amanda explain, this is probably,.Amanda, would you say this is probably.one of the trickiest questions? Yes, .the wording of this question can be a.little tricky and this is about your.residency, and it is needing to know.basically if you live inside the state.of Alabama, or one of these Georgia.counties that are listed here in bold,.inside these parentheses, so by.answering yes you are saying that the.address in this application that is in.the state of Alabama, or one of these.counties, is correct. What gets tricky is.it says my present intent is to remain.at that address indefinitely, they're.just asking you're living in Alabama and.you intend to just stay here, it doesn't.mean you will never move, and that's.where people get get tripped up a little.bit, so if you currently live in the.state of Alabama or one of these.counties, then you're going to go ahead.and answer \"yes\". The answer to this.question can cause the difference in.your rate that you're charged, because.it's going to put that you are an.out-of-state student, and you may get.charged a different rate, so you want.to make sure that you answer this.question honestly and correctly. There's.a lot they have to do if they answer.this incorrectly they then have to.provide forms to the Registrar's Office.to prove that they are actually in the.Alabama residence, so you just want to.make sure that you answer that correctly..Probably should have mentioned this.earlier, but you will need your social.security number, you can get that from.your mom or dad,.you can also get it.from your high school counselor, so if.you need that information they do have.that in your in your high school records.as well. And again you want to make sure.that this is correct in the system and.this is a good time to address this.issue, we can only have one account set.up per social security number, so if your.account- your social security number is.entered incorrectly, and we try to make.you a student in our system, and somebody else has already assigned that number, it.will not allow us to put you into our.system until that is corrected. If you.have a sibling or parent who has already.created a JSU application account, and.you think that you can just go into.their account and then create an.application from there, it's going to.attach it to their social security.number, and then it's going to cause more.issues down the road, so always make sure.that you are setting up your very own.JSU application account, and making.sure that this social security number.is correct. And then it's just gonna.continue asking some basic demographic.information there, again if you have any.questions about this, you can ask a.parent or guardian and they can help.direct you a little bit..So it's gonna ask you if you have a.parent or a stepparent currently.employed by JSU, we do not need to know.if they are part-time, we need to know if.your parent is full-time at JSU, working.at JSU. This information is really.important, I do have some students.sometimes that don't put their parent.information in, and and sometimes you.know, I do actually need to get in.touch with you about something, and so.having a parent they actually will.receive, they'll be on our communications.plan, so they will all receive a lot of.the emails that you receive as a student,.and I have found that parents really.appreciate that. They may help you.remember important deadlines or they may.find out about a particular program like a.JSU team that we have that they might.be interested in, and maybe you didn't.get a chance to read the email, it's just.a great idea just to go ahead and put at.least one parent in, and you'll see that.this gives you the option to actually.put two parents in, or another person.that is helping you with your college.journey. You can put two people in, or you.can put one person in. If your mom and.dad want information, it's probably good.idea to put both of them. Now this.screen for high school sometimes can get.a little bit tricky when you're running.a search. I'm going to let Amanda explain.what the best practice is to find your.high school in the system. Alright as you.can imagine we have a lot of high school.names that are stored inside our system,.and so you should be able to find your.high school, especially if you are in a.major public school system, it should be.already set up inside our system, and I.have found that sometimes less.information is better to use, one, you're.less likely to make errors in the.entering of the information when you're.using less information, but sometimes you.may not know the difference, in maybe a.school name, maybe it used to be under a.different name, or we have the full name,.such as like Brewer High School,.Albertville high school, so sometimes.just adding a part can be helpful, instead.of the whole thing, and sometimes just.searching by the city and not the name.of the school can help cut that down too.because when you go to enter a city,.it'll also populate for you for you to.enter a state, and then that's gonna.narrow it down a lot more for you than.having to search through hundreds of.schools, maybe like Jacksonville, it's a.very common name for a school, so we'll.go down here and we'll just do.\"Jacksonville, Alabama\" and search, and you.can see that narrowed it down to three.schools that are in Jacksonville..So we'll just choose Jacksonville high.school for this. So it's really kind of,.you're kind of trying to be strategic, so.you can look it up either about high.school or you can look it up by the city..Yes, and you can continue to search until.you find it, if you are homeschooled,.you're gonna want to check this box down.here, and you're going to want to put.your school name and address, and that.would be your covering or umbrella.school, if you have to report grades to.another institution, so again if you.don't know that information, you can ask.your parent or guardian or whoever is in.charge of your homeschooling. And then.you're going to enter your graduation,.again if you are trying to go for fall,.and you've already graduated high school,.you're probably not going to be a jump.start student at this point, so this will.be another way you would know that you.have not gotten to the right application,.but we're just gonna go ahead and put 22,.and it's gonna ask us again about that.major, we'll just stick with art, it seems.pretty interesting, and we'll move.forward. Alright, so now we have come to.basically the final page of your.application for the semester, and the.consent for academic release is.basically based off the Family.Educational Rights and Privacy.Act of 1974, you're going to notice.it's already selected, and let me tell.you what FERPA- you'll hear people.say, \"Well, I can't talk about FERPA\",.so mom, dad, if you're if you're watching.this video and you happen to call JSU,.and you want to get some.information about your student,.unfortunately there are other offices.at JSU that cannot release that.information based off FERPA, so what this.allows our office to do is to share.numeric grade information with your.guidance counselor or your principal..If we don't have that it can create.all kinds of problems in the fact that a.dual enrollment student by nature is.counted, both on your high school.transcripts, and on your college.transcript, so we want to be able to give.those grades to your guidance counselor.so she can put that on your high school.transcripts, so that is what that is,.please do not uncheck it it will create.lots of, lots of issues for you, but you.are agreeing to give me the right to.share that information with your.guidance counselor or your principal..Alright, next is going to ask you about.your disciplinary history, and this.question scares a lot of people,.especially high school students, because.most of us don't make it out without at.least one demerit, or going to detention,.for just a minute, maybe you were just.tardy, so we kind of get nervous when we.see anything asking about if we've ever.been in trouble..What this is asking about, it is not.asking if you were caught chewing gum in.school and sent to the principal's.office, or any of those type of things,.this would be anything that includes, you.know, like a probation, a suspension,.basically anything that is going to.involve the police in any way, that's.what they would need to know in this.case, and if you have had any type of.disciplinary action against you you.would just click it - yes and then you.would list the dates and just kind of.give us a brief explanation of what.happened. This does not mean that you.will not be chosen.or able to participate in the jumpstart.program, you just may have somebody to.reach out to you to make sure that we.understand what happened, and that you.can be supported at your time in the.jumpstart program, so don't be afraid.about this question, just answer as.honestly as you can, and if you end up.answering yes and it's something that's.really not what we're looking for, it's.fine, don't worry about that. The.second question is asking more about if.you've ever had a felony, and that would.really involve anything with the police,.so just answer as honestly as you can.with those, and then this is just asking.for your permission, basically that you.understand what you're signing up for..The first question is saying \"I.understand that the offer is traditional\",.meaning you aren't necessarily guaranteed.that you will be able to take dual.enrollment by doing this application..We're going to talk a little further as.we move along, how we check your GPA,.which is basically the main thing for.our eligibility, we're going to check and.make sure you have a B average in high.school work, which is our main condition,.so you kind of understand that, you know.we're going to check with your guidance.counselor. You're saying \"Yes, I.understand you're gonna check my GPA\". The second portion is talking about.title IX, and JSU's code of conduct, and.their agreement there, if you want to.look up that information, basically it's.just agreeing to JSU rules, but if you.want some more thorough information, you.can certainly look that up on our.website. And then finally the last.question is saying you are.telling us the truth, and you confirm.that with a \"Yes\", and then you're going to.do- you're gonna type your name in, which just.provides an electronic signature that.tells us you understand all of these.questions. And then you're going to.submit the application. Sometimes I'll.have students when they do this, it'll.come back and it'll have little red.things that say you forgot to finish/answer.this question, if you click on the.red links, it's going to take you back to.the part of the application that.maybe you thought you completed, but.maybe you just clicked over it and.forgot. So if you do that, just follow.those red links, and it's gonna get you.to where you need to- where.you'll be able to sign off and complete,.but if you look at this now, we can see.we have an application that tells JSU,.\"Yes, I want to take classes the Fall 2020.\".\"So I haven't just created an admissions.account, I have now told JSU I want to.participate in classes for Fall 2020.\" But.you will also notice there's an action,.that action is highlighted in \"View\", in.red. If you want to see that, you can.click on it, and then you can go to.requirements and documents, and you'll.notice that it's telling you, \"Wait a.minute.\".\"You need a high school authorization.form that has not been received by the.admissions office.\" A high school.authorization form does come from your.guidance counselor, it can come if you're.homeschooled, I know some some of the.principles for the home-school umbrellas.or coverings actually send that in.sometimes, but it does need to come from.whoever is keeping up with your high.school transcript, so that will verify to.our office, you can have your guidance.counselor, they know what this is, if you.will request a high school authorization.form from them, they will know to send.that to transcripts@JSU.edu. And once.that's been received, if you sign back.into your account and you're just.wondering, \"I wonder if they've.received that yet? I requested it from my.guidance counselor but I still haven't.heard anything back from JSU\", you should.be able to go here and look right here.at this status and it would change from.\"not received\" to \"received\", so you would.know at that point it has been attached.to the application, and if you still.haven't heard from us, a couple more.steps you might want to do, one, return to.your email account that you put on your.application, and look for an email from.us. If you do not see one in your inbox,.check your junk mail and your spam folder. When you are accepted, within 36 to.48 hours, it is sending you an email. This.email is very important, it contains your.ID number, it also contains your.temporary passwords for your myJSU.page, which is where you will do your.registration,.a lot of things here at JSU are all done.from that myJSU page, there's a very.important page to learn, and also your.JSU email account. This is how, you.may have a lot of your instructors may.get to you this way, a lot of your.information is going to come to that JSU.email account, and so once this is done,.and you see that we've got that, start.looking for that email, for that email to.come to you with those instructions. And.right now, our office is doing an early.access, or conditional acceptance, which.means when you do this application, you.will receive within 36 hours, you will.receive that email that contains that.information. You will be able to do.everything in your myJSU but.register. You cannot register for a class.until we do receive that HSAF, so that's.that's a little bit of what we're doing.right now. So, some of the frequently.asked questions that we've had students.ask about, one of the things I've had.students say- you are getting, you are in.a communications plan. If you've.completed an application or an account.you're getting a lot of emails from us,.and one of those is our application.email. You do not need to reapply, okay?.If you've been taking dual enrollment.classes every semester, from the time you.did your application, you've not skipped.a semester, you haven't taken a year off,.you do not need to do another.application, you are already accepted..The only condition for that is if you do.take a semester off, or a year off, then.we will need to have a new high school.authorization form from your guidance.counselor to verify your eligibility..That is also true if you were placed on.dual enrollment suspension, we will need.to reverify your eligibility. There.are some schools that ask that you.complete an application, but for JSU, we.do not need a new application. In fact, it.can actually mess up your account,.because it will take you right back.through the admissions process, and you.will not be able to register for classes..So, no, you do not need to reapply.if you are already a jumpstart student.and you have finished classes, okay?.You also do not need to pay, I mentioned that earlier, if you are paying for an.application fee, then you are in the.wrong application. That's a common common.problem, and then make sure that, you know, we can reset if you, if you go into.your admissions account, this screen.right here, and you do not remember the.email address or the password you used to.create your admissions account, that is.something admissions can help you with,.but if you do not remember your myJSU,.or your JSU email, now this means you.set it up, if you've ever set it up.before, but if you if you set it up and.you do not remember those passwords, you.will have to contact information.technology here at JSU to give- because we.do not store those passwords, we do not.have them. So you will have to contact.them for any information. Again, as you're.going along,.please keep good notes, because we will.we will not have your passwords, so.you'll need to make sure that you keep.good notes. Thank you for this time,.Amanda do you have anything else that.you needed to add? I don't believe so..Alright, thank you so much, and again, if.you have any questions at all, you can.always call our admissions office at 256-782-5328. Thank you so much!.
