Welcome to Johns Hopkins! The Office of Undergraduate Affairs/Engineering Advising is here to ensure that you have access to the support, resources, and information you need to make the most of your academic career.
The information below will help you get your transfer credits evaluated and register for your first-semester courses. Please review the information and follow the directions carefully.
1. Check your JHU email daily. Your Hopkins email is the primary source of communication from the university.
2. Before registering, students must complete several mandatory items on the Canvas site called WSE Academic Advising. Complete all the items under the “BEFORE Registration” in the “Incoming Transfer Students ONLY” module. It is imperative that students complete the External Course Review form as soon as possible so that their transfer courses can be evaluated prior to the registration date.
3. Prepare for registration:
- Review your degree requirements.
- Explore Semester.ly. This is a comprehensive scheduling planning tool and it is used to find classes that fit your schedule, provide access to course evaluations and ratings, textbooks, and much more.
- Review the language placement exam information if you wish to a language course in your first semester at JHU.
- Private instruction in voice, piano, and orchestral instruments is offered through Peabody Conservatory and Preparatory. For information about audition and registration, please visit the Peabody at Homewood Music Minor website.
- Make sure that you do not have any registration alerts/holds that will prevent you from registering on time.
- At least one week prior to the registration date, you will receive at least a partial transfer course evaluation and faculty advisor assignment. Reach out to her/him/they to develop an appropriate schedule for the fall semester.
- Load your courses to My Cart in SIS.
4. Register for classes on time! Popular courses tend to fill up quickly. Remember, current Hopkins students already registered for the fall semester in April. Therefore, you may have to join the waitlist for some classes. Please do not contact the instructor to get into the course. Follow the waitlist policy.
