Admissions Requirements

Admission policies at Jefferson Davis Community College are administered by the Registrar which operates under the direction of the Dean of Student Affairs.

The Registrar's office is responsible for interpreting and implementing policies of the Alabama Community College System as well as federal, state, and local laws and policies in regards to admission of students to the College and the maintenance of academic records.

ADMISSION APPLICATION PROCEDURES

All students must complete an application for admission, submit one (1) primary form of identification, and provide an official copy of his/her high school transcript and other required documentation prior to the beginning of the registration process. 

 

Forms of Identification

 

For admission, applicants must present one (1) primary form of identification. Examples of primary forms of identification include:

  • Unexpired Alabama driver’s license or instruction permit

  • Unexpired Alabama identification card

  • Unexpired U.S. Passport

  • Unexpired U.S. Permanent Resident Card

  • Resident Alien Card – Pre-1997

  • Unexpired drivers’ license or instruction permit from another state or possession that verifies lawful presence, dated 2000 and beyond

  • U.S. Alien Registration Receipt Card (Form I-151) prior to 1978

  • BIA or tribal identification card with photo

  • I-797 Form with expiration date

 

Applicants should submit the identification referenced above in person.  Those applicants unable to present identification in person must submit a legible copy by mail or via electronic submission.  

 

For the protection of the public and to assist in maintaining state and local security, persons who are not citizens of the United States may not be admitted to any Alabama Community College System institution for the purpose of enrolling in flight training, or in any segment or portion of a flight training program, until appropriate certification and approval have been received from the Office of the Attorney General of the United States, pursuant to Section 113 of the Aviation Transportation and Security Act, regulations of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and all other applicable directives.

 

APPLICANTS WHO FAIL TO SATISFY THE FORMS OF IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENT WILL NOT BE ADMITTED TO ANY ACCS INSTITUTION.

 

Required Admission Documentation

 

Degree seeking students must submit:

  • Admission application;

  • Primary form of identification;

  • Proof of high school graduation;

  • Official transcript – high school or GED;

  • Official transcripts from all other colleges attended;

  • Official ACT, SAT, AP, Clep score reports;

  • Students who have achieved a minimum of a Baccalaureate degree are only required to submit a transcript from the degree granting institution.  However, admission to certain programs at the College (i.e. nursing) may require submission of official transcripts from every college attended.

 

 

Non-degree seeking students (students seeking admission to Certificate programs) must submit:

  • Admission application;

  • Primary form of identification;

  • High school graduates must submit an official high school transcript showing graduation or an official GED score report;

  • Official transcripts from all other colleges attended;

  • Students who have achieved a minimum of a Baccalaureate degree are only required to submit a transcript from the degree granting institution;

Types of Admission

 

There are two types of admission statuses: unconditional and conditional.

 

Unconditional status applies to students who have submitted all required admissions documentation.

 

Conditional status applies to students who have NOT submitted all required admissions documentation.  Failure to provide all required admissions documentation by the end of the student’s first term (or upon returning after not attending for one or more terms), will prevent a student from future registration and official transcript release.
