If you are not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, you will need to attend international student orientation.
There are two components to international student orientation:
- International Programs orientation
- Alive! orientation
All international students must sign up for both programs.
International Programs orientation
The Office of International Programs will welcome you to campus and help you with the procedures and questions that are unique to international students.
There are many options for Alive! orientation. Choose a date that works for you.

Transfer student Alive!
If you have at least 27 semester credits (or 40 quarter credits) and are already in the United States, we encourage you to sign up for a transfer student orientation.
While you can attend any orientation session that is convenient for you, the transfer sessions will allow you to register for classes before anyone else.
