You’ve Enrolled…Now What?

First, take a minute to celebrate your decision! When you’re ready to think about your big transition this fall, these are the steps you need to keep in mind.

Late Spring

Receive your Hopkins email address.

We’ll reach out via email in late spring with your JHED ID and instructions for how to activate your new email address.

Get to know the Student Information System aka SIS. 

This is where you’ll update your personal information, download important documents, and manage billing.

Explore your summer to-do list in Canvas.

Canvas is the student portal where you’ll find your list of to-dos to help you prepare during the summer before arriving at Hopkins. It includes information related to health forms, housing, dining, orientation, and more.

Late May

Consider housing and dining preferences.

Access the Housing Portal to submit your housing and dining plan choices.

Early Summer

Get excited for orientation.

In August, we host a week of fun, community-based events that’ll help you get to know the campus, your future classmates, and explore Baltimore.

Late June

Receive your advising assignment.

You’ll be assigned an academic advisor who’ll help you understand the requirements for your major (if you’ve already decided on one) and register for classes that’ll allow you to explore and develop your interests.

Mid July

Register for courses.

After you get your faculty advisor, we’ll send you information about registering for your fall courses.

Early August

Connect virtually with your First-Year Mentor.

You’ll be paired with a first-year mentor (FYM) who’ll help guide you through orientation week and navigate the transition to life at Hopkins.
