New international students are required to attend orientation prior to beginning their studies at Cascadia.

Orientations are offered for every quarter, and generally take place the week before classes start. During orientation, students will take placement tests, learn about immigration rules, Cascadia policies, and academic programs and requirements. Students will also go on a tour of campus and of downtown Seattle, will register for classes, and will get to know other students!

Please contact the International Programs Office as soon as possible if you need to defer attendance to the next quarter.

Orientation dates for next few upcoming quarters are as follows:
