As a new student, you are required to attend our in-person orientation before your classes begin. Remember to reserve your spot in advance by completing our Intent to Enroll Form.

Dates and schedules for upcoming orientations are below:

Checking in online and attending our in-person orientation are mandatory for all new students. Checking in online is necessary to maintain your immigration status. Students who are unable to attend orientation and report to their campus IP office by the first day of class may need to defer their enrollment to a future quarter. Contact IntlFutureStudent@seattlecolleges.edu for further guidance.

In addition to attending orientation, new students must complete other tasks to prepare for their first quarter. See our pre-arrival checklist for further details.

New International Student Facebook Group

In addition to attending orientation, you are encouraged to connect with us via Facebook. Approximately 1-2 months before the start of your first quarter, you will receive an email inviting you to join a private Facebook group for new international students at Seattle Colleges. The purpose of the group is to allow you to connect with fellow schoolmates, ask questions, and get answers as you prepare to enroll. We will send the invitation to the email address listed on your admission application -- so keep an eye out! To join our private group, follow the instructions included in the email message.
