International Student Orientation

Learn more about the upcoming FIUTS orientation for new international students at the University of Washington.

Welcome to the University of Washington! FIUTS provides an orientation for all new international students and scholars at the UW, including graduates, undergraduates, exchange students, and visiting scholars.


At orientation, you will learn about important resources available to you as a UW student, U.S. customs and lifestyles, and visa and immigration essentials; have an opportunity to meet other local and international students; and discover Seattle! FIUTS International Student Orientation is designed to make your transition to the UW as smooth and rewarding as possible.

If you are a freshman or transfer student, you should attend FIUTS Orientation AND participate in an Advising & Orientation (A&O) session with UW First Year Programs (both online and on-campus options are available to new international freshmen).

If you have any questions about International Student Orientation, please email us or call the FIUTS office at 1-206-543-0735.
