Undergraduate Freshman International A&O

Your A&O session has three major components: 

  1. First-year Checklist (Required): You have required online training and tasks that you will need to complete as you enter the university. Some tasks will take a few hours to complete and are required before you attend your A&O session.
  2. A&O Session: Sessions will be hosted live on Zoom. You will start the day with your Orientation Leader and meet fellow huskies, faculty, and staff while registering for your first quarter at the UW.  After making your A&O reservation, we encourage you to request time off work, clear your calendar and find a quiet space to log in to your computer. You will be actively engaged for the entire one or two days. 
  3. New Husky Experiences: Attend optional webinars and on-campus events (Husky Hangouts) to deepen your engagement with the UW community. Don't forget to mark your calendar for Dawg Daze, which will feature hundreds of events at the start of autumn quarter to assist with your transition.
