First Year Students

All new first-year students participate in Orientation to launch their educational careers at Seattle U. This winter, we will have an online orientation due to restrictions in place to stop the spread of COVID-19.  

Through a series of online Orientation Canvas Modules, new students will learn important information about academics, financial aid, the many ways to get involved on campus, transitioning to college and much more. During Winter Welcome (Jan. 4-10) there will be many events for new students to connect with the Redhawk community and discover how to be successful at Seattle U. All required events are posted on the New Students + Family and Supporters web page. You can also find links to other helpful Seattle U web pages and a multitude of resources on this page. Check it out to revisit information from the fall or to explore something new. 

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 this winter, we also have information especially for you, including ways to support your student (and yourself) as they make the transition to college. You will find many recordings and resources posted on the New Students + Family and Supporters web page. Please visit it for more information. 

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