International Student Orientation

Fall 2018: September 17 - 21

International Student Orientation is very important for your success. Every new international student is required to attend. We recommend arriving at least two days before orientation begins. You can find directions to our campus from the airport here. To learn more about orientation, see the orientation schedule preview.

During orientation, you will have:

  • Math and English Language placement tests
  • a campus tour
  • academic advising and registration for classes
  • meetings with International Education staff
  • seminars about life and study in the USA
  • an opportunity to go sightseeing in Seattle


An orientation fee of $60 (one-time fee for all new international students) will cover refreshments and other services during orientation.
