About Your JHED ID

Your JHED ID (or Login ID or LID) is the username that you use when you log in to JHED. Many resources at Johns Hopkins University now use JHED IDs to authenticate users and allow access to certain systems.

Students

Students will use their JHED ID to access their e-mail, register for classes, check and print their confirmation and/or class schedule, access their grade report, and view their bill.

Alumni

Alumni will use their JHED ID to log in to their e-mail account and set up e-mail aliases.

Faculty

Faculty and advisors may use their JHED login to obtain course rosters, check grade reports, view enrollment history, and release holds. Faculty members also use JHED IDs to access the Faculty Intranet.

NOTE: Faculty members who are also APL staff with JHED ID issues should contact Tracy Gauthier (Tracy.Gauthier@jhuapl.edu or 443-778-1422). They can also call the APL Help Desk at 443-778-HELP (4357).

Staff

Employees of Johns Hopkins University use JHED as a source of e-mail, address, and telephone information to locate other staff within the university. They also use JHED to fill out time sheets, choose benefits, and sign up for training classes.

For additional assistance using JHED, please call the HITS Help Desk at 410-516-HELP (4357) or send an e-mail to jhed@jhu.edu.

JHED Guide

Step #1: Locate Your JHED ID

The first step in initiating your JHED account is to determine your JHED ID (or Login ID or LID). You can find your JHED ID by searching for yourself from any campus computer.

Visit my.johnshopkins.edu and enter your last name in the Search box at the top right of the screen. Then click GO. If there is more than one person with your last name, locate yourself first, and click on your name. Your JHED ID (or Login ID or LID) will be displayed.

If you cannot conveniently get to a campus computer at one of our education centers, or you have access but cannot find yourself in the directory, you must call the HITS Help Desk at 410-516-HELP (4357) for assistance.

Step #2: Log In to JHED for the First Time

Once you have located your JHED ID, you can log in to the JHED system and initialize your account.

From the initial my.johnshopkins.edu screen, click FIRST TIME USER in the upper left corner. You may also click MYJH HELP and then How do I log in for the first time?

You will then be taken to the First Time JHED User screen. Enter your JHED ID (or Login ID or LID) in the box. A first time login to the JHED system requires that you verify your identity and set up your account.

You will be asked for your social security number and date of birth (NOTE: APL employees will be asked for their employee ID# instead). That information will then be verified and you will be asked to choose a new password, secret question, and secret answer.

Read the password requirements carefully before you decide on a password. The secret question and secret answer will be used to create a new password if you forget yours. If you list your e-mail address in JHED, you may request that your secret question be e-mailed to you. You then will use your secret answer during the login process.

Please keep in mind that JHED passwords expire every 180 days. When your password expires, you will be prompted to change it upon logging in to JHED.

For additional assistance, please call the HITS Help Desk at 410-516-HELP (4357) or send an e-mail to jhed@jhu.edu.

Change or Reset Your Password

There are two ways to change or reset your JHED password.

1. If you have successfully logged in to JHED, click on the MyProfile icon under the MyProfile category on the left. Password Management options are listed on the right side of your profile page. You will be required to enter in your old password, the new password, and then re-type the new password to verify it. Your password must be at least eight characters long and must contain at least two numeric characters and two alphabetic characters.

2. If you cannot log in to JHED, you can also reset your password by clicking on CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD in the upper left corner of the initial my.johnshopkins.edu screen. You will then be taken to the secret answer/question area, which will allow you to reset your password.

Please keep in mind that JHED passwords expire every 180 days. When your password expires, you will be prompted to change it upon logging in to JHED.

Edit Your JHED Information

To update your JHED information, log in to my.johnshopkins.com and click on the MyProfile icon under the MyProfile category on the left.

To the right of your profile information, you will see links to change your online visibility settings and change your password, among other options. You can also edit your profile information from this screen. Make sure you click “Save myProfile” at the bottom when you are done.

If you need to request to change any data that you cannot edit (because the system is not allowing you to do it), and you are a student, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 410-516-8080. If you are a faculty member, please call 410-516-2257.

Online Visibility

JHED represents your data in two ways: Hopkins View and World View. The Hopkins View represents how your data will look to users searching your record from within Johns Hopkins University networks. The World View represents how your data will be presented to the internet in general. It is important to note that all searches conducted while logged in to JHED will yield the Hopkins View, regardless of your network location.

For each field in your profile, you have the option of selecting No One, World, Hopkins, or My Contacts. When your record is returned as the result of a search within JHED, only visible fields with data will be displayed. Empty fields are not displayed.

Once you have completed selecting fields for display, please be sure to click Save myProfile. This will save your changes.

If you want to completely suppress yourself from view (and you are eligible to do so), select No One from the Full Name display row on your profile. Doing so will completely suppress your entry from searches. This choice has security and privacy advantages, but be aware that Hopkins affiliates with legitimate reasons to contact you will not be able to do so. It is your responsibility to make sure that each individual who may need to contact you has correct contact information.

For additional assistance, please call the HITS Help Desk at 410-516-HELP (4357) or send an e-mail to jhed@jhu.edu.
