Preparing for Reed

A successful transition to Reed requires careful planning.

Steps are outlined below. Reed’s Orientation team, part of the college's student life division, will communicate with you throughout the summer to provide reminders and important information about campus resources and Orientation.

Create Your Computer Account & Activate Email

To receive all of our communications you must create your Reed computer account. You will automatically receive a Reed email address once you have an active computer account. 

Submit Materials & Complete Forms

After you create your computer account and activate your email account, you can begin to submit required materials.

Summer Communications

You’ll receive reminders from us over the summer. We will post each email we send to you in reverse chronological order on our website for your reference.
