As a new Carey Business School student, you are encouraged to review the following information as it will assist you in navigating administrative steps that will enhance your student experience.

New Student Checklist

We ask that all new students familiarize/view the information provided and attend in-person orientation prepared to ask specific questions.

1. Activate your Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory (JHED) log-in.

JHED is a university-wide online directory of students, staff, and faculty. New students need to locate and activate their Log in ID. The JHED ID and password gives admitted students access to a variety of JHU online resources, including online registration and online library services. For step-by-step instructions to activate your JHED Log in visit our tutorial (instructions are the same across all schools). Please note that a JHED ID (usually based on an individual's name) is different from a Hopkins ID (a combination of letters and/or numbers).

2. Set up your Johns Hopkins Office365 e-mail.

All Carey Business School students are required to activate their Hopkins email address. All official communications from the school and Johns Hopkins University will be sent to this address, including, but not limited to, class assignments, billing information and emergency notifications. For step-by-step instructions to activate your Outlook Live email and to learn to forward your JHU email to another address, visit the tutorial.

3. Register for classes in a timely fashion.

To search for classes you may visit this website; to register for classes, please visit this website (you will need your user ID and password). Make sure to review the academic calendar, which indicates registration dates, deadlines, semester end and start dates, add/drop periods, and other important dates.

Please make sure that you carefully review your program requirements and speak with your academic adviser before registering for classes. Your adivser's name can be viewed in ISIS or by calling the general advising line at 410-234-9320.

Attention Washington, D.C. students - Immunization Requirement:

According to Washington, D.C. Immunization Law 3-20, students under the age of 26 who attend classes in Washington, D.C. must get vaccinations for Measles, mumps, Rubella (MMR) and Tetanus/Diphtheria. You will need to submit proof of your immunizations once you register for classes at the Washington, D.C. Center. Such forms are provided to all students admitted to the JHU Carey Business School. An immunization hold will be placed on student accounts, preventing registration if the completed immunization form is not submitted by the registration period of your second semester at the school. Download the immunization form.

4. View the library’s orientation guide and the plagiarism and Honor Code tutorials before you begin your academic research or assignments.

The following guides from our librarians will introduce you to key library staff on all campuses, the many resources and services that can facilitate your academic research, and tools to help you manage and properly cite your references, in order to prevent plagiarism.

Please complete the Carey Business School’s Honor Code/Code of Conduct tutorial and sign the pledge (required of all students).

6. Obtain your Student Identification Card (J-card).

To have your J card pre-printed, please submit a photo with the requirements listed below to J-card forms can also be submitted on day of orientation; students will be notified via email when cards have become available for pick up. J-cards can also be requested in person at either Harbor East or Washington, D.C., locations.

Photo instructions: Only the image of your head, neck and shoulders will be reproduced on your J-Card. What works best is a portrait that is about 2 x 2 inches or 400 x 400 pixels on which the size of your head is about 1 ¾ x 1 ¾ inches. Yearbook and passport photos are ideal. If your head appears much smaller or larger than 1 ¾ by 1 ¾ inches, it is difficult to reproduce. Please choose a plain, indoor background and do not wear sunglasses, hats or hairstyles obscuring your eyes. If the office is unable to use the submitted photo, a J card will be processed upon arrival. J cards take up to two weeks to issue.

In your email please include:
