    If I understand correctly you want to set a field as required based on the selection on a drop-down.

    If this is correct, then yes, this is possible using conditional logic in your form.

    The condition would look similar to the picture below.

    You can see a demo form here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50256322769963 feel free to clone it to your account if you want to.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
    Best Regards.
