Early Bird Immersions Logo 2023

Sign-Ups for Early Bird Immersions are closed for Fall 2023.

Read below to explore our Early Bird Immersion opportunities.

What are Early Bird Immersions? Early Bird Immersions are early arrival programs for new first-year and transfer students who want to launch their Redhawk journey at Seattle University a few days early. Each experience focuses on making connections with other new students who share your passions, interests, and identities.

Why should I sign up for an Early Bird Immersion? Participating in an early arrival program is an opportunity to make new friends with similar interests, move into your residence hall early (if living on-campus), and get settled into life at SU a few days before the start of Fall Welcome.

Is there a cost for Early Bird Immersions? Some programs have a moderate cost and others have no cost. Programs with costs have partial and full scholarship opportunities for those who request financial assistance. If you are not requesting a scholarship, payment is due at the time of sign-up to confirm your spot.

How do scholarships work? We recognize a partial or full scholarship will make this opportunity a reality for some students based on their financial status. If you would like to request a partial (half cost) or full scholarship (full cost), follow the instructions on your sign-up form. We will update you on your scholarship request by Tuesday, August 15. If you owe any amount after we review your request, payment will be due Friday, August 18.

How do I sign up for an Early Bird Immersion? Log into your Admissions Portal, then go to the Orientation: Redhawk Next Steps page. Scroll down past your New Student Checklist to find sign up links and more information about each program.

How will my move-in be different? Students living in on-campus residence halls will be approved to move in early for their Immersion program. Your move-in date and time will depend on which Immersion you sign up for. The early move-in dates and times are noted on the sign-up form for each Immersion. After your attendance is confirmed, detailed move-in instructions will be emailed to your SU email from Housing and Residence Life. Additionally, students attending an Immersion Program will not need to sign up for a move-in appointment on the Housing Portal. There is no additional cost for early move-in.

Students can only participate in one Early Bird Immersion. The deadline to sign up for Early Bird Immersions is Tuesday, August 15.
