Registration Instructions

All student participants from each high school and their Teacher/Advisor(s) will register as a group online using MyJSA at  Chapter presidents and Teacher Advisors will register their chapters online through MyJSA, making sure to complete registration by the deadline. If you are unsure of your state’s registration deadline, please contact your program director.

Before You Begin

  1. Review the registration packet. If you don’t already have a registration packet, download one by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.
  2. Make sure you have access to Chapter Management online. Log in to MyJSA and make sure you have access to the chapter management features.  If you are the Chapter President or Teacher/Advisor you should see a “My Events” tab after logging in, and on the My Events page, you will have a “Start Registration” option on the right side of the page.  If you do not see these options, contact your Program Director.
  3. Update your chapter roster. Make sure all of your chapter members are listed on your membership roster.  All individuals must create their own MyJSA accounts at home or during a signup meeting. This page gives an overview of the chapter management process and includes a short video demonstrating the process.  All of your members should be shown on your chapter roster before you complete your registration.
