"Jackson State is proud to be an open-door institution which means that our doors are open to anyone regardless of grades or test scores. Anyone who wants to go to college can do so here at Jackson State," said Dr. Bruce Blanding, president of Jackson State. "We have programs that are challenging enough for honors students, but we also offer developmental classes and tutoring services for students who need extra help. We provide education to our students at the level they need."
The number of Jackson State graduates with associate degrees is approximately 12,000. A high percentage of these graduates will stay in the 14-county service area of the college for employment.
