clipart of a red redhawk birdAll new transfer students participate in Orientation to launch their educational careers at Seattle U. During our Summer Student Programming new students will have the chance to engage in virtual social events to connect with peers and attend various sessions to help with their transition to Seattle U.

In addition to our virtual programming, new students will be added to a series of online Orientation Canvas Modules. Transfer students will learn important information about academics, resources for support, including those specifically for transfer students, financial aid, the many ways to get involved on campus, transitioning to college, and much more.

During Fall Welcome there will be many events for new transfer students to connect with the Redhawk community and discover how to be successful at Seattle U. Transfer students will build upon their summer experiences and get to participate in some of Seattle U's long-held traditions.
