Congratulations on your graduation from Peabody and Johns Hopkins!

As you end your journey as a student and begin life as an alum, we want you to continue to care for your multi-dimensional well-being.

Here are some tips to guide your transition into post-Hopkins life as it relates to university resources.

Know Your Deadlines

Your ability to access different Hopkins-sponsored resources ends on different days.

Resources available through your graduation day:

Resources with different end dates:

  • Calm and SilverCloud. Access to these two platforms is connected to your JHED ID.
    • JHED IDs remain active until 180 days after your graduation date, so you will be able to use it to access these resources until that time.
    • After your premium access to Calm ends when your JHED ID expires, you can still access some of Calm’s content for free or pay for premium content (which is what the Hopkins access provides). Subscription rates for Calm vary according to the plan you buy.  
    • SilverCloud only provides institutional subscriptions; there is no way to access the platform after your JHED ID expires.

Make the Most of Hopkins While You Still Have Access

Be proactive. Get a refill on any regular prescriptions. If you’re due for an annual physical, OB-GYN exam, or any other routine doctor visit, schedule it while you still have access to those providers. Finish your SilverCloud modules.

Talk to Your Current Providers to Set Up a Transition Plan

Hopkins-based clinicians are happy to work with you to find new providers who can help you maintain continuity of care, especially regarding the management of chronic conditions and maintenance of prescription drugs. The options available to you will vary according to personal post-grad circumstances.

If you’ve been working with a mental health provider, talk to them about your impending graduation and what steps you can take to preserve and build upon the work that you’ve done.

No Postgrad Insurance Coverage? Hopkins Can Provide Guidance

If you will not have access to health care through an employer, educational institution, parent, or guardian after your student coverage expires, Hopkins providers can offer some guidance.

Students enrolled in the WellFleet plan are covered until August 14, 2022. If, at that time, they do not have access to benefits through an employer or a parent or guardian, the SHWC Insurance Staff will assist Peabody and Homewood students in enrolling at or in subsidized health plans like Medicaid. In some cases, non-US citizens can enroll in these programs. In other cases, international students may need to purchase insurance coverage.

Again, congratulations on your graduation. We hope that, as always, you will be well and do well in the next chapter of your life and beyond.
