Program Specific Orientation

Running Start, Seattle Promise, International Programs, and Basic and Transitional Studies (ABE, ESL, and GED®) have separate orientations. If you are enrolled in these programs, you are welcome but not required to participate in 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. 


Students are highly encouraged to register for fall quarter classes prior to attending Orientation. You may find you have questions, are feeling stuck, or just want some extra support. Attend a Pre-Orientation Event in the Broadway-Edison (BE) building to get help setting up your accounts, understanding your placement options, and learning how to connect with advisors, faculty, and staff.

Pro Tip: Pre-Orientation events are drop-in, so no RSVP needed.

Tuesday, August 15 from 11AM – 1PM

Wednesday, August 23 from 4:30PM – 6:30PM

Tuesday, August 29 from 4:30PM – 6:30PM
