If you are an ethnically diverse student who attended a diverse urban high school or are the first in your family to attend a four-year university, Early Connections Orientation may be for you.

Early Connections Orientation is a two-day orientation that starts one day before Seattle Pacific University's New Student Orientation. It's especially beneficial for incoming students who:

  • Will be a first-generation college student
  • Were part of an AVID, College Bound, TRIO or similar program

Early Connections orientation is now full, but don’t worry! Students can get connected to Early Connections in a few ways:

We look forward to meeting you!
