Information for Enrolled Students
As an Emerson student, you will need to have an ECnet account, which will grant you access to the college's computer network. An ECnet username and password will enable you to use computers in Emerson's labs, access web-based course management pages (such as Canvas), and eCommon, where you can view your student information and course grades. After you register for a course, you will receive an email from Emerson's IT Help Desk entitled "Activate your account" which will enable you to set up your password to access the College's online services. If you did not receive your activation email, please check your Spam folder first in case the message did not reach your inbox, and then submit an IT help ticket and a member of the IT team can assist with troubleshooting your request.
All Emerson students, staff, and faculty are required to have an Emerson ID card. This card grants you access to campus buildings and services, such as the Emerson College library. If you are a first-time student, please pickup your official Emerson ID card BEFORE your first class at the ID Office in the Piano Row Building (150 Boylston St.) If you are a returning student, you do not need a new ID card. The ID card you have will be reactivated for the semester in which you are actively enrolled. If you are taking only Online or Remote courses and do not plan to visit the Emerson campus, no ID card is needed.

After you have activated your ECnet account (see above), visit the Learn Anywhere page to learn how to access Emerson resources from anywhere, from any device.
To order transcripts or to request enrollment verification, visit the Certifications and Transcripts page of the Registrar's Office.

At the present time, Emerson College is not authorized to issue I-20’s for study in its Professional Studies and Special Programs (PSSP) courses. Depending on an international student’s immigration status and personal circumstances, enrollment in a PSSP course may be permissible or may result in an immigration status violation. Maintaining valid immigration status while in the United States is the responsibility of the individual, not Emerson College. PSSP staff cannot advise individuals about their immigration status. If you have any questions about the requirements for maintenance of your specific immigration status, please contact the U.S. Consulate in your home country prior to enrolling in a PSSP program.
