Next Steps

Welcome to your new home.

An outstanding community awaits you! Here’s what to do next:

Before Orientation

Step 1: Complete and submit the enrollment form.

To let Emmanuel College know you’ll be a member of the entering class, submit your enrollment form and enrollment deposit ($500 for resident students or $300 for commuter students) online or by mail to the Office of Admissions.

Step 2: Create your Emmanuel e-mail and student portal accounts.

Be sure to check your e-mail soon after submitting your enrollment deposit for instructions on how to set up your Emmanuel e-mail and MySaints (the Emmanuel portal) accounts. Future communication from the College will be conducted through these accounts.

Step 3: Considering applying for need-based financial aid?

If so, submit the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov as soon as possible. If you previously submitted the FAFSA and did not list Emmanuel, you will need to add the Emmanuel school code (002147) and re-submit your FAFSA. View tuition costs and payment options here.

Step 4: Complete the Entrance Health Form + Health Insurance Waiver.

The Entrance Health Form must be completed and signed by your physician and received at Emmanuel College by January 5th, 2015. Look for this form on the MySaints portal. Additionally, to meet Massachusetts requirements, all students are automatically enrolled in the College’s health insurance plan and charged the $1,313 premium. Students with comparable coverage may waive the plan at www.universityhealthplans.com by January 9th, 2015.

Step 5: Send your final high school and/or college transcripts.

Before you register for courses at Emmanuel, we need your final, official high school and/or college transcripts. Be sure to contact the appropriate high school and/or college office to request that your transcripts be sent to Emmanuel. If you would like courses evaluated for transfer credit, please make sure you have submitted course descriptions for all courses taken. We will send you a transfer course evaluation as soon as possible.

Step 6: Take the Assessment of Foundation Skills.

As a new student, you must take the online Assessment of Foundation Skills in math and language before registering for classes. Look for more information about this on the MySaints portal.

Step 7: Planning to live on campus?

Complete and submit the Residence Life + Housing Lease and Preferences Questionnaire by January 5th. This will be available on the MySaints portal.

Step 8: Get ready for Move-In Day!

New resident students: plan to move into your residence hall on Sunday, January 11th, between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. You will receive more information through your Emmanuel.edu e-mail account about what to expect on Move-In Day and a list of suggested items to bring for your residence hall room.

Step 9: Prepare for Orientation.

Spring Orientation is January 12th and 13th. Be sure to set aside both full days. Plan to be on campus to register for classes and learn everything you need to know for your first day of class on Wednesday, January 14th.
