New Student Orientation

The START New Student Orientation will introduce you to resources, support and opportunities available at Seattle Central College. It will prepare you for your first quarter on campus.

New Student Orientations for Fall 2018 enrollment are only available online at this time. Thanks for your patience!

Online Orientation

If you are not able to attend an in‐person orientation or have attended a college before coming to Seattle Central College, you may take the orientation online.

Bypassing START

Running Start, International Education and Basic and Transitional Studies (ABE, ESL, and GED®) have separate orientations, and students enrolled in those programs are not required to participate in the START New Student Orientation.

If you have taken classes at North Seattle College or South Seattle College or have already earned an associate or bachelor's degree, you are eligible to bypass the New Student Orientation. Contact the Registration Office for more information.
