Important Next Steps

Activate Your JHED ID

After you accept your offer of admission, you will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office requesting that you activate and set up your Johns Hopkins University Enterprise Directory (JHED) ID and JHU email account. JHED is a university-wide online directory of students, staff, and faculty. New students need to locate and activate their Login ID. The JHED ID and password give admitted students access to a variety of JHU online resources, including online registration and online library services.

  1. Go to the myJHU website.
  2. Click the Create Account button to open the First Time JHED User menu.
  3. Enter your JHED ID in the Login ID box.
  4. Follow the prompts to verify your identity and create a password.
  5. Once your ID and password have been created, you may now log into SIS Self-Service.

If you already have a JHED ID because you are a former student or employee at JHU, you will not receive an email. For instructions on activating your JHED ID, please view this tutorial. If you experience any technical difficulties or have questions about activating your JHED ID, please email SOE IT at [email protected] or call 410-516-9747.

Set Up Your Johns Hopkins Outlook Email

All students will need a JHU email account to register for classes. The university sends correspondence such as billing statements, universal announcements, and academic communications to your JHU email account, so it is important for you to both activate and monitor this email account.

  1. Log in to the university enterprise portal, myJHU.
  2. You will be prompted to Accept the Office 365 Terms of Service in order to set up the account for use. Scroll down to the bottom to accept.
  3. Once the Terms of Service have been accepted, you will see the Office 365 quick link on the left side of the portal page.

Your email should now be established. It may take an hour for your Email Alert to be removed from your record. You can access this email from the homepage of the myJHU website. Be sure to set up your email account prior to accessing the Canvas learning management system. If you experience any technical difficulties or have questions about activating your JHED ID, please email SOE IT at [email protected] or call 410-516-9747.
