Domestic Student Checklist

Confirm Your Intent to Enroll Online

Confirm your enrollment online

To confirm your enrollment online, log into the Application Portal and submit your nonrefundable enrollment deposit by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or electronic check.

If you do not intend to enroll at Emerson College, please log into your application portal, and fill out the "Graduate Reply to Offer of Admissions" form to officially decline your admissions offer.

Create Your Emerson Account

Once the Office of Graduate Admission receives your enrollment deposit, you will receive an email inviting you to create your Emerson account.

After creating your account, you are provided with an Emerson College network account login for accessing most electronic resources at Emerson College. With your Emerson ID account you can access your Emerson email account, personal web space, the Emerson College wireless network and other services.

Your Emerson Gmail account is the College's official means of communication with you. You can forward your Emerson Gmail to your personal account. You are responsible for checking your account frequently for important reminders and notices from the College.

Submit Your Health Forms

To begin classes, students must provide documentation of compliance with all health requirements to the Emerson Wellness Center by July 15 for fall enrollment and January 5 for spring enrollment. The Online Student Health Portal is now live and detailed instructions are available online.


Submit Your Official Final Transcript

Before matriculation to Emerson College, an official final college transcript is required which includes the degree, degree date, GPA and a seal/stamp with signature. The transcript or diploma must be an original, e-transcript or pdf directly from the school/vendor. An original may be received from the student in a sealed envelope stamped as “official” from the granting institution.

For Communication Disorders students, CSDCAS final transcript and degree information is also considered official.

You cannot start classes until we receive this evaluation. The College reserves the right to rescind admission if a final transcript is not received or does not meet minimum requirements.

Please send official final transcripts to:

Emerson College Graduate Admission
120 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02116

Send your official transcripts digitally to gradadmission [at] (gradadmission[at]emerson[dot]edu).

Registration Information


Graduate Program Directors will contact students with specific instructions for registration via email. If you have not heard anything from your Graduate Program Director four weeks before the start of the semester, please let us know by contacting your admission counselor or by sending an email to gradadmission [at] (subject: Registration) (gradadmission[at]emerson[dot]edu).


You can use our Academic Calendar to plan for Orientation, start of classes, bills, and other important dates.


A wealth of information and the answers to many questions regarding course selection and curriculum can be found in the Graduate Catalog.


Entering Communication Disorders students who did not major in Communications Disorders as an undergraduate need to complete six preparatory courses prior to matriculating in our master’s program. If you have not already completed your prerequisite coursework and wish to enroll in any (or all) of the courses this summer, you can do so through Emerson’s Professional Studies and Special Programs department. Review more information on these requirements.

Pay Your Tuition

Student Accounts will email account statements in early December for spring students, or in mid-June for fall students. For more information, see the Student Financial Services website. View our Tuition & Expenses section to help you understand and meet the costs associated with an Emerson education.

Secure Off-Campus Housing


Take time to connect with the folks at our Off-Campus Student Services center. They can be a great resource for people who are new to the city of Boston. They have information about housing, roommate matching, public transportation passes, and more.

Attend Orientation (On-Campus Students)


Graduate Orientation, mandatory for all incoming on-campus graduate students, occurs for both the spring and fall semesters. Online and low-residency students will have separate orientations, and will NOT attend Graduate Orientation. Your Graduate Program Director will reach out to you about orientation details for your specific program. 

On-campus students will receive an invitation via email about Orientation when dates and locations have been confirmed. Attendance is mandatory according to our New Graduate Student Arrival Policy. Schedules and additional information about the events will be posted as they become available. View the Orientation website


We provide several ways for you to get in touch with current students, faculty, Admission staff, and other members of the Emerson community.


If you didn't have a chance to visit campus, we'd be happy to arrange a visit and personalized tour for your program. Please sign up here


A number of our admitted students have joined the Emerson College Graduate Accepted Students Facebook Group. With more and more students connecting online before they enroll, it is a great resource to meet your future classmates, ask current Emerson students questions, and find your future roommate.

Other Options


Admitted students who need to request a deferral for a future term may do so by submitting a written gradadmission [at] (request via email) to the Office of Graduate Admission. Deferral requests are reviewed by committee and approval is not guaranteed. If a deferral is granted, students must submit a deposit within two weeks of being notified of the approved deferral in order to secure their space for a future term.
