After you submit your enrollment form and enrollment deposit, you will receive an e-mail prompting you to set up your student e-mail account so you can log in to the MySaints portal. You will need access to MySaints to complete assessments and your housing form.

After you create your Emmanuel e-mail account, you will receive information about Orientation. Orientation is a two-day (one overnight), mandatory program for all new students. Prior to your arrival, you will receive an online booklet with everything you need to know about registration, information on accessing disability services, areas of student involvement, mission and ministry, residence life and Boston visitor information.

Everyone is required to attend Orientation, and you must register between May 1–May 31.

Summer 2017 Orientation dates:

  • June 12–13*
  • June 15–16
  • June 19–20
  • June 22–23

As another option, there is a September Orientation session. This session is immediately before the start of classes, so you would not have to make a separate trip to Boston. Email with questions or to learn how to register for the September Orientation session.

*Transfer students must attend the June 12–13 session.

Register for Orientation

As a new student, you must take the online Assessment of Foundation Skills in math and language before registering for classes. This will be available on the MySaints portal after May 1.

As a new student, Emmanuel must receive your final, official high school transcript before the first day of classes in the fall. If you took a college course while in high school, Emmanuel will need that final, official transcript as well. Transfer students: Emmanuel must have your final, official high school and college transcripts from all colleges attended, even for only one course. Be sure to request your final, official high school transcript from your Guidance/College Counseling Office at your high school and/or the Registrar's Office at your college. Get your request in early! Not submitting final grades will delay your ability to obtain transfer credit and register for appropriate classes at Emmanuel.

International students must schedule an appointment with the local U.S. Embassy in their home country after receiving an I-20 from Emmanuel. For further information and instructions, please contact the Office of Admissions.
