Welcome to Seattle University, New Redhawks!

Start your journey off right as a Redhawk with New Student Orientation.

All new undergraduate students (first-year students and transfer students) are required to participate in orientation programming. Orientation includes engaging with fellow students, academic advising, registering for classes, learning about our academic and co-curricular programs, and obtaining information about how you can get involved with the Seattle University community. Upperclass Orientation Advisors will be available to answer your questions and guide you towards success.

Families & Supporters are encouraged (not required) to participate in Orientation through sessions designed specifically for them. We will introduce them to the values, goals, and practices of Seattle University as well as share resources about our academic programs and student services.

We know that you and your family & supporters have many questions as you prepare for this exciting transition. That's where our team comes in!

We look forward to meeting all of our new undergraduate Redhawks soon!
