Now that you have received your acceptance letter, there are just a few steps you need to take to become an Emmanuel College student:
Fall 2016 students, welcome to your new home.
An outstanding community awaits you! Here’s what to do next:
NEXT STEPS TO COMPLETE BEFORE MAY 1st
If so, submit the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. The 2016-2017 FAFSA is available after January 1, 2016. Emmanuel's priority filing date is February 15, 2016 and school code is 002147. View tuition costs and payment options. Have a question about the FAFSA or financial aid? Contact Student Financial Services.
For members of the class entering in Fall 2016, the Accepted Student Days are February 28th or April 9th! Contact the Office of Admissions to R.S.V.P. via e-mail, by phone (617-735-9715) or by sending us the reply card enclosed with your invitation. Each accepted student may bring up to two guests.
If you can't attend one of our accepted student days, be sure to visit Emmanuel for a tour, shadow day or even an overnight. Questions? Contact the Office of Admissions.
Make sure you have a current passport that is valid at least six months into the future. It is your responsibility to be aware of the expiration date and to renew it when appropriate. Should you need to renew or update your passport, contact your local government embassy.
NEXT STEPS TO COMPLETE MAY 1st AND AFTER
National Candidate Reply Date (Emmanuel College's enrollment deadline). You've made your decision. Now, it's time to let us know you're coming to Emmanuel in the fall as a member of the entering class. You can let us know anytime on or before May 1st by submitting your printable enrollment form via mail to the Office of Admissions. With this form, you must also submit your enrollment deposit ($500 for resident students or $300 for commuter students). You can submit your deposit online or mail your deposit to the Office of Admissions.
After you submit your enrollment form and enrollment deposit, watch your Emmanuel e-mail account for 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 (Student Activities), campus ministry, residence life and Boston visitor information. Everyone is required to attend Orientation, and you must register between May 1st-May 31st.
Here are the 2016 Orientation dates:
June 13th + 14th, June 16th + 17th, June 20th + 21st, and June 23rd + 24th. Transfers must attend the June 13th + 14th session.
As a new student, you must take the online Assessment of Foundation Skills in math and language before registering for classes. The assessment will be available on the MySaints portal after May 1st, and must be completed by June 10th.
Living on campus this fall? If so, you will want to complete the Residence Life + Housing Lease and Preferences Questionnaire as soon as it becomes available on the MySaints portal in mid-May. The last day to submit your form is June 27th. Watch your Emmanuel e-mail for more information.
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. For further information and instructions, please contact the Office of Admissions.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires all students enrolled at least 3/4 time to be enrolled in a health insurance plan. To ensure that Emmanuel College students are meeting this requirement, all students are automatically enrolled in the College's health plan and are charged an annual health insurance premium. In 2015-2016 the health insurance premium was $2,248; the 2016-2017 health insurance premium will be available in the spring of 2016.
If you have comparable coverage provided by a United States health insurance provider, you may waive enrollment in this plan by completing a waiver at www.universityhealthplans.com. The deadline to complete the waiver to avoid incurring the cost of the premium is August 3rd.
In June, you will receive an estimated annual tuition bill for the 2016-2017 academic year so that you may begin considering which payment options may be best for you and your family. If you are borrowing with a private loan and/or enrolling in Emmanuel's ten-month payment plan, this is the time to do it! To learn more about payment options, please visit emmanuel.edu/paymentoptions. Questions? Contact Student Financial Services.
The fall semester tuition bill is due August 5th. If you have any questions, please visit emmanuel.edu/paymentoptions or contact Student Financial Services.
The first weekend in September is an important one—it's when you move into your Emmanuel residence hall and are welcomed as a new student on our campus. If you are not planning to live in a residence hall, you should still set aside this weekend to be on campus. Details about the date, your arrival time and an agenda for New Student Welcome will be provided. Stay tuned for more information! Questions? Contact Residence Life + Housing.
Wednesday, September 7, is the first day of classes for the Fall 2016 semester. Mark your calendar!
International students: The program start date on your I-20 is September 7, 2016. You may enter the United States up to 30 days BEFORE, BUT NO LATER THAN September 7, 2016. If there is any reason you cannot arrive by this date you MUST contact Office of Admissions immediately. Permission to arrive late is difficult and depends on your situation.
Spring 2016 students, welcome to your new home.
An outstanding community awaits you! Here’s what to do next:
If so, submit the 2015-2016 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.
The Entrance Health Form must be completed and signed by your physician and received at Emmanuel College by January 8, 2016. 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 $1,416 premium. Students with comparable coverage may waive the plan at www.universityhealthplans.com by January 14, 2016.
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.
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.
Complete and submit the Residence Life + Housing Lease and Preferences Questionnaire by January 8th. This will be available on the MySaints portal.
New resident students: plan to move into your residence hall on Sunday, January 17th. 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.
Spring Orientation is January 19th. Be sure to set aside the full day, as you will be registering for classes and learning everything you need to know for the start of the semester. Classes begin on Wednesday, January 20th.
