FAQ - Requirements
Is FIUTS International Student Orientation required?
All new international students at the University of Washington are required to attend a FIUTS International Student Orientation Session, during which you will connect with other new and returning students, prepare for your cultural transition to the UW and U.S., and complete your immigration check-in process. In fall quarter, these sessions are offered multiple times during International Welcome Weeks. In winter, spring, and summer quarters, one session is offered, usually the Friday before classes begin (although this date can vary).
Other information sessions and social events offered during International Welcome Weeks are optional, but you are strongly encouraged to attend to support you in a successful transition to UW.
