First Year Students

Welcome to Seattle University! All new first-year students participate in Orientation to launch their educational careers at Seattle U. We've moved to online orientation this year due to ongoing restrictions in place to stop the spread of COVID-19.  

Through a series of online events and activities all summer long, you will meet with academic advisors and register for fall quarter classes, learn important information about housing and financial aid, find out about the many ways to get involved on campus, and more. You'll also connect with an Orientation Advisor (a current student), meet your fellow Redhawks from the Class of 2024, and have fun!

Check out the New Students + Family and Supporters web page to learn more.


Information for Family & Supporters

We know that our students' supporters - family members, guardians, mentors - are their biggest champions and, often, most responsible for a student coming to Seattle University. In our online orientation program, we'll also provide information especially for you, including ways to support your student (and yourself) as they make the transition to college. Visit the New Students + Family and Supporters web page for more details.

We are excited to welcome our new Redhawks and their families and supporters to Seattle U!
