Please Note: Updated information for the Class of 2025 will be available in early June 2021. Orientation activities for most first year students are scheduled to begin on campus on Wednesday, August 25th, 2021, with move-in on or before that date. Some pre-orientations or athletic pre-seasons may begin earlier. Given our continued responsiveness to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that students and their friends or family not make travel arrangements until the fall semester dates are confirmed and recommend flexible/refundable travel plans at that time.
Your first task is to create an electronic Haverford identity and email account.
New Account Activation (Required)
In early June you'll receive an email from ProDesk [at] haverford.edu (subject line "Welcome to Haverford College—User Account Setup") with your new user account information, which will allow you to access your Haverford email account as well as many of the password-protected forms you'll need to use before arrival. Instructions for activation will be sent to your personal email address. Activate your Haverford user account as soon as you receive this email.
Contact the ProDesk if you have any questions at prodesk [at] haverford.edu or (610) 896-1480.
Note: From this point on, all communication from the College will go to your Haverford email account, so use it exclusively for communication with us and check it regularly!
Student Entry Record (SER) (Required)
Shortly after you activate your new user account, you'll be able to access the Student Entry Record (SER). You should submit your SER as soon as possible after you set up your new user account. You will not be able to access the housing questionnaire until you have updated your SER. Contact the ProDesk directly if you have any questions at prodesk [at] haverford.edu or (610) 896-1480.
Note:Students should wait 24 hours before proceeding to their next tasks after completing the SER.
Note: If you have a U.S. Social Security Number, you will need it to complete this form.
After you activate your Haverford user account and submit your Student Entry Record (SER), you will be able to register for your OneCard. OneCard is your access to the residence halls and other campus buildings, your library card, and your dining card for the Dining Center (DC) and the COOP.
OneCards are issued using a student's preferred name. If you do not enter a preferred name into BIONIC, the system will default to your legal name. If your OneCard is issued with a preferred name, you will not be able to use it to establish residency when you vote in Haverford's district, but the state of Pennsylvania does permit other forms of identification. Contact Franklyn Cantor (fcantor [at] haverford.edu) with any questions about voter registration.
Note: To register for a OneCard you must add two zeros (00) to the front of your Student ID, which can be found in the SER.
Student Payment Registration (Optional)
In order to facilitate receiving payments from the College (e.g. research stipends, scholarships, fellowships, awards, tuition refunds) we ask that you go through our secure "Student Supplier Registration" process, which will create a record for you in our Procurement system. During the process you'll have the opportunity to provide information for the bank where you would like electronic payments sent. We encourage you to take advantage of this option, as it will allow you to receive any payments you receive more quickly, and also helps the environment by reducing the need to send paper checks.
For further details on this process, links to required tax forms, and information on whether you should register as a Domestic or International Supplier, please visit the Controller's Office's New Student Payment Registration page.
Deadline: August 1, 2021
Voter Registration on Campus (Optional)
As college students, those Haverford students who are eligible to vote in the United States may choose whether they would like to register and vote at their educational institution, or at their permanent home address. Students who register at their permanent home address may either travel home to vote, or complete an absentee ballot per their state’s procedures. Choosing between the two registration locations is entirely the decision of each student, and the College only seeks to provide all pertinent information about the options.
