Hop Online pre-college programs are delivered through Hopkins Blackboard, the university’s learning management system. Within Blackboard course sites, you will participate in discussions, check their assignments, and access materials. Zoom may be used as well. Zoom is a web conferencing system for possible office hours and live sessions.

With your JHED ID, logon to You will need to enter the last five digits of your social security number.

  • For persons without a social security number, a temporary ID is assigned to you and sent to the email listed in your application. If you need help recovering your temporary ID, please reach out to the Johns Hopkins University Registrar’s Office at to confirm the email address on file and receive the temporary number assigned to you.

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

You will use your JHED ID to access your e-mail, check your class schedule, access a grade report, and view and make payments on your bill.

Accessing Online Programs & Courses

Once a student is enrolled, students will have access to campus computer access functions with their “JHED ID”. Please visit and click on “First-time JHED user” in the login box. You should have received an email from the Registrar’s Office with the subject line: “Johns Hopkins Government ID”. This email contains information necessary to start your JHED access. If you have not received the confirmation email, please check your Spam or Junk folders.
