Letter from Dr. Carter

Dr. Carter

Welcome to the JCSU Parents section! 

When your sons and daughters enrolled in Johnson C. Smith University, they were not the only ones who became part of the JCSU family. So did you, their parents and guardians. The University’s administration and faculty joined you as partners in educating your children and helping them navigate the challenges of staying in school, graduating, and making wise choices as they prepare for a satisfying and successful career.  

We are honored by your trust in us and take our partnership with you very seriously. This portal, with its capacity to share knowledge and encourage two-way communication, will help to strengthen it further.  

You will be able to sign up to receive our periodic Parent E-newsletters, as well as emails regarding incidents on campus when timely and reliable information is of the essence. You’ll also be able to visit this portal at any time for updated information about the University, whether it’s regarding upcoming deadlines and key dates to remember; registration and validation; or financing your children’s education. There will also be helpful details about parking and accommodations for campus events such as Commencement. Plus you’ll be able to email questions to our Deans, with their responses posted on the website.   

Together, we can help our students and our children become themselves and change our world. 

Dr. Ronald L. Carter

President
