Information for Parents and Families

Parents Sneak Peek of "Student To Do List"

The Student Portal is an extensive online checklist designed to acquaint new students with the necessary forms and procedures that must be completed before matriculation into the university. Incoming freshman can access the portal using their JHED credentials by following the link provided here.

For parents, a carbon copy of your student's online portal may be found here. If you haven't already, now would be an opportune time to start a dialogue with your student to monitor their progress with items listed on their online portal.

Please encourage your student to consistently visit his or her Student Portal as information is updated on a regular basis. Should you have further questions regarding specific portal items, please contact the appropriate office(s) with the "HELP" e-mail button or contact our office.

What Orientation events should parents plan to attend?
The Orientation program offers programming for parents during the two days of Freshman Move-In. While the final Orientation schedule will not be available until mid-July, parents may plan on the following:

Friday, August 22, 2014

  • Schedule to be determined!

Saturday, August 23, 2014

  • Schedule to be determined. However, you may plan on the bulk of parents' programming to occur between 9 AM and 8 PM on Saturday, August 23, 2014. Please note that programming offered on Friday, August 22 will be repeated the next day so parents will not miss anything.
