JSU students do not advance into high-paying positions after graduation despite their impressive SAT results. The average salary for a grad from JSU is $49K.


After graduation, men go on to earn an average of approximately $41K per year compared to women, who earn $82K.


Another city that attracts a wealth of JSU grads is Anniston, Ala.; given its high compensation ($53K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. On the other hand, JSU alumni who end up in Birmingham, Ala. receive the lowest median salary of about $32K.

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for JSU grads with a Bachelor's Degree (average earnings climb to $57K per year).


For former Gamecocks, proficiency in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) warrants a paycheck that is double other alumni salaries. Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a popular skill among JSU alumni, with about one in eight grads reporting using it on the job. Competency in People Management, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Acute Care also warrants excellent remuneration.

Benefits and Perks

To plan for old age, a majority of graduates maintain savings accounts through a company's 401(k) plan. The larger part of survey participants have medical plans, and slightly more than two-fifths of alumni have dental insurance. Other benefits awarded to Jacksonville State University alumni include a company-subsidized cell phone and a casual working environment.

Related Schools
