Incoming Students: Have you checked everything off your list?

If you’re a new SAIS student enrolling in Fall 2013, the beginning of the school year is fast approaching!  In fact, if you’re attending DC Pre-Term, you’re starting class in just two weeks.  Can you believe it’s almost here?
If you haven’t done so already, not would be an excellent time to review your Incoming Student To-Do List, which is available on the SAIS Insider portal. 
Go to my.jh.edu and login with your JHED credentials. In the upper right-hand corner is a link that says “GO TO” – select SAIS Insider from the dropdown menu. Look for the tab titled “Washington DC To Do List” (if you’re enrolling at the Washington, DC campus) or “Bologna To Do List” (if you’re enrolling at the SAIS Europe campus).  The other pages on the SAIS Insider page will provide you all the information you need to complete everthing on your To Do List.
Thanks for reading!
