International Student Orientation

International student success at CWU begins with orientation.



Ellensburg International Student Orientation

In addition to the customary four phases of CWU orientation, our office provides a mandatory International Student Orientation program for all new international students attending the Ellensburg Campus.

Spring Quarter 2021 International Student Orientation:

Monday, March 29th 10:00 am to 1:30pm held virtually via Zoom.  We will send you an email with the Zoom link that morning to your CWU email.

Spring Quarter International Student Campus Tour & Immigration Check-in

Meet other international students and our staff on Tuesday, March 30th at 1:30pm. Bring your passport and immigration documents.  We will meet inside the hallway of Hebeler Hall outside our office doors.  

Meet with Dean Ediz Kaykayoglu, Dean of Extended and Global Education at 4:30pm (optional)

The last Tuesday of every month at 4:30pm he has a virtual office hour for students to visit him.  Click here to join. 

Spring Quarter International Student Move-In Day:  Sunday, March 28th 12:00pm - 4:00pm

 If you will be moving to a residence hall, normal check-in time will be on Sunday from 12 - 4.  But you can make arrangements with the Housing office to check in earlier since the dorms will be open during spring break.  Please let us know when you're coming.
