Hello New International Students,
We are writing to congratulate you on your acceptance to Seattle University and share information about our Mandatory International Student Welcome Workshop. The purpose of attending this workshop is to introduce you to services at the International Student Center (ISC), assist you in managing your student immigration status, and inform you about international student health insurance. You will also get a chance to meet other international students at the workshop!
Whether you are a new undergraduate student, new graduate student, or new transfer student, our Welcome Workshop is important to your success at SU. You will also need to complete the online orientation Canvas course, which will be sent in an invite to your SU email. In order to travel outside the United States with your Seattle University Form I-20, you will need to attend the full Welcome Workshop and complete the online Canvas course.
Seattle University requires all undergraduate students to provide documentation that they have had Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), a Tetanus booster, and the Hepatitis B series. Please enter your mandatory immunization records on the Student Health Center Online Patient Portal. Once you enter your records, send the Student Health Center a hard copy for verification. Graduate students do not need to provide immunization documents.
Housing on campus is available but limited, so we recommend applying as early as possible. Only first year and second year undergraduate students are required to live on campus and are guaranteed housing. More information about on campus housing and the application process can be found on the Housing and Residence Life website. If you are looking for off campus housing, please check out the ISC website’s Housing tab.
We are looking forward to meeting you! Please remember that during your first week of classes, you need to check-in at the ISC, Pavilion Room 160 with your immigration documents. If you are already in the Seattle area, you can check-in anytime during our normal business hours Monday through Friday, 8:30am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-4:30pm. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact the International Student Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 206-296-6260.
