Welcome to JCSU!

All Johnson C. Smith University students, faculty and staff are required to have an ID card. Your JCSU ID-Card is used for many important services on campus such as building access, meal plan and flex dollars purchases, admittance to athletic events, and much more.


Golden Bull Academy participants will have the opportunity to submit their photo through our ‘Online-Photo Submission Process’ prior to GBA. This process will reduce the amount of time you need to stand in line and increase the amount of time you can spend learning more about JCSU’s many offerings.
