International Welcome Weekend
Welcome to Summer Quarter at the University of Washington! FIUTS International Welcome Weekend officially begins on Friday, June 21, 2019, with additional activities through the weekend.
New international students starting in Summer Quarter 2019 are advised to arrive in Seattle before June 21. All new international students on F-1 or J-1 visas at the University of Washington are required to attend one Embark 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 compulsory immigration check-in process. Embark for Summer 2019 will be on Friday, June 21. Please register to confirm your attendance and share your preferred name. Please note: The Embark session has moved to HUB room 145.
You will receive weekly e-mails starting approximately two months before International Welcome Weekend on topics such as Embark details, checking in at the UW, and transportation. These emails will also be archived online.
