What to Expect: Your JHED ID

In mid-May, all coming students will receive an email from the SAIS IT office regarding their JHED ID.  But what’s a JHED ID and why is it important?
JHED stands for Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory - but that’s not really important.  In fact, feel free to completely forget what the acronym stands for.  But knowing your JHED ID, logging in, and setting up your preferences right away IS important.  Your JHED ID is your JHU email, and it also allows you to register for classes, check your financial aid and billing (pay your tuition!), access the Pre-calculus and calculus review courses,  and lots more.  There will be specific instructions in the email from SAIS IT, so I won’t go into details here.
But I will say this, incoming students: keep an eye on your email and look for this message in mid-May!
