Reserve Your Move-In Time (Required)

As JBU begins to make plans for fall 2020, this page will provide the latest information and updates. Please review the appropriate sections and FAQs. If your questions are not answered, contact the appropriate department (see contacts list) or fill out the form below if the contact is unknown. JBU is under the jurisdiction of the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) and Governor Asa Hutchinson in our response to the pandemic and as such will follow all guidance and directives. The most immediate change of note is the change to our fall academic calendar. You can see President Pollard’s June 9 letter for more details on why this decision was made, but here are the new dates.
