Orientation sessions are generally held during the last two weeks of the academic quarter and during break periods between quarters. Please call 425.640.1175 to find out the dates for the next orientation sessions or to register for a session.

Orientation sessions meet at the Veterans Resource Center, Lynnwood Hall, room 215.
