Students enrolling at Seattle University in the Fall Quarter 2013 must attend a MANDATORY SESSION of the ISC New International Student Orientation, otherwise known as our New Beginning Program (NBP). The orientation offered new NEW STUDENTS is different from the one offered for TRANSFER STUDENTS. Please see the dates and times for orientation sessions below:
NEW STUDENTS (includes undergraduates and graduates new to U.S. colleges): Monday, September 16th & Tuesday, September 17th from 8:15am - 7:00pm on both days.
* Check-in and continental breakfast begins at 8:15am on both days.
TRANSFER STUDENTS: Saturday, September 28th from 8:15am - 7:00pm.
* Check-in and continental breakfast begins at 8:15am.
* An optional dinner will be provided from 5:00pm - 7:00pm.
Orientation sessions include:
The cost of attendance for New Beginning Program (NBP) is $60.00 and includes continental breakfast and lunch. Payments for NBP are to be paid directly to the ISC in cash or check/money order. All checks/money order should be made out to Seattle University.
Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes on the day of orientation and be sure to check the weather to see if you have to bring a raincoat or an umbrella as you will be outside during the Campus Tour. Students who do not attend orientation will have an ISC HOLD placed on their University account and you will be unable to travel outside the United States until you attend the Winter Orientation session.
In addition, all new transfer students are highly encouraged to attend all Office of Commuter and Transfer Student Life (CTSL) events taking place in the beginning of Fall quarter as that Office is also geared toward supporting all students that commute and transfer to SU.
More information about CTSL can be found at http://www.seattleu.edu/ctsl.
As soon as you arrive on campus, please be sure to bring your passport, visa stamp, Seattle University I-20 form (or DS-2019), and I-94 card to the International Student Center in the James C. Pigott Pavilion for Leadership (Room 160) so we can register you in SEVIS.
SEVIS is a database maintained by the U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement and the United States Department of Homeland Security mandates that you register with our office upon arrival.
If you fail to report to the International Student Center (ISC), you will be considered out of status and must go through reinstatement to regain your F-1 visa status. For those students transferring into the University from another college, please bring all other I-20 forms with you that were issued by other colleges when you visit the ISC.
If you have any questions, please call our office at (206) 296-6260 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
