General Nursing Info

This page will provide you with general information about your Emory email account, your Emory directory listing, how to submit your transcripts, and billing and registration. It is very important that you read the information in each drop-down accordion very carefully, as not to miss important deadlines or essential new student information.


  • Your new Emory University email address is your OPUS; your password for OPUS and your email will be the same. You will be notified when you are able to access your Emory email account. You are responsible for accessing, reading, and responding to communications sent to your Emory email, accessible here. It is highly recommended that you check your Emory email daily.


  • Online Pathway to University Students (OPUS) is the online student information system through which you can update your personal information, view your financial aid, access your student account or student record, and perform other functions.
  • You are able to update your mailing address, email addresses, and phone numbers in OPUS. We highly recommend that you update your preferred mailing and email addresses as soon as possible. 
  • You should also make sure that you are signed up to receive emergency alert notifications from Emory University.  You can do so by logging into OPUS and clicking on the Emergency Alert link under the Personal Information tab of your OPUS homepage.


All Emory University students are required to have health insurance. Under this requirement, students must either purchase:

  • Emory University Student Health Insurance Plan (offered by Aetna student health) or,
  • Provide documentation of enrollment in a comparable United States-domiciled plan.

Students wishing to waive enrollment in the Emory Student Health Insurance Plan will need to complete the annual waiver process via OPUS by Aug. 1 for BSN/ABSN students and May 1 for AMSN students. For information about student health insurance requirements and the health insurance waiver, please click here.


  • If you still have outstanding prerequisites, please send an updated transcript with those grades as soon as possible. If you do not complete your courses early enough to have an official transcript mailed, you must bring an official transcript with you to Orientation. Failure to provide a final transcript documenting completion of all prerequisites will result in withdrawal from classes.
All incoming Emory University students are required to complete the HavenPlus education module. HavenPlus is an online learning platform designed to educate students on preventing and responding to interpersonal violence in the Emory community. It takes approximately 45 minutes to complete (closed captioning is available for video portions).  Click here to complete your Haven Training  Click here for Haven FAQs.


  • Billing is in progress, and you will be able to use OPUS for all account activity. Please click here for more information.


  • All nursing students are automatically registered and cannot choose the time or day of their courses. Because nursing students are mass enrolled into their classes each semester, you and your classmates will have the exact same schedule. You will receive your official class schedule during orientation.


Emory University is committed to providing all students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to succeed within the Emory community. The Office of Disability Services (ODS) assists qualified students in obtaining a variety of services (i.e., alternative testing, notetaking, interpreting, advocacy, mobility/transportation, etc.) and ensures that all matters of equal access, reasonable accommodation, and compliance are properly addressed. If you may need any of the services provided by the Office of Disability Services, please complete the registration process outlined here.

As a new student, you will need to obtain an official university ID (mandatory for all students). You can use your EmoryCard to access a wide variety of services both on and off campus.

If you have any questions feel free to contact the Parking office at 404.727.7275.
  • Please review the parking regulations on Transportation and Parking website before completing your registration. 


  • Emory encourages its students to explore all transportation options for travel to campus before registering to park on campus. Options including public transportation, Park-n-Ride, and carpooling are outlined on by the Office of Transportation and Parking. The cost savings — several hundred dollars — are significant.
