Final Quarter

Last Quarter Policies

Congratulations on completing your time at Seattle University! As an international student, there are important steps to take to make sure that your transition out of Seattle University is successful. 

Directions on following these procedures are available under the Policies and Procedures Tab. 

Mandatory Procedures: 

  • Last quarter statement
    • For all students
  • Request to be below full-time for last term of degree completion
    • Only for students who need to be below full time in their last quarter

Important Information for All F-1 Students

F-1 students who did not apply for OPT have a 60-day grace period after the last day of their final quarter. After the 60-day period, student records will automatically be closed and those students will need to exit the U.S.

However, within the 60-day period, students may complete the following options.

Common Optional Procedures:

  • OPT Application (recommended 90 days before program completion)
  • Transfer-Out Requests
  • Change of Level
  • Leave the U.S. 
    • Please note that once you leave the U.S., you cannot re-enter with your I-20. The grace period is only for traveling within the U.S.
