If you have submitted your tuition and housing deposits (as applicable), it's time for your next steps!
You will need your Seattle University user ID and password for many of these next steps. Note that your Seattle U password expires every three months. If your password has expired, visit the Password Reset page and click the link "My password has expired."
Once you've paid your confirmation deposit for Fall 2018, you have access to an online welcome course called "New Redhawk Next Steps" (available in mid-April) via Canvas, Seattle University's online class platform. You will use Canvas for many of your classes here at SU.
The "New Redhawk Next Steps" course will allow you to:
The "New Redhawk Next Steps" Course will also provide important information about your health insurance options and how to submit immunization documentation. After you have completed your schedule preferences form and registered for a Summer in Seattle session, you will be able to complete Housing preferences.
After you have submitted your Schedule Preference Form and registered for a Summer in Seattle Orientation session, you will have access to complete your Housing Preferences via your MyHousing portal. It is recommended that you submit your Housing Preferences no later than June 1st. Housing Preferences will be available for submission beginning May 7th.
Students have the option to search for roommates using our roommate searching process in the housing portal. This process begins in late June to ensure incoming students have a large pool of potential roommates to browse. Please note that while students have the option to select a roommate, many students choose to have the Housing and Residence Life Office pair them with a roommate. Roommate matching will close in mid-July.
Students Living Off Campus
Students who plan to live with family off campus must still submit a Housing Application via the MyHousing portal (accessible via the "New Redhawk Next Steps" online course) and select the "living off campus" option.
To learn more about the Housing selection process, visit the "New Redhawks Next Steps" online course and click on the box that says "Living On and Off Campus."
Proof of certain immunizations is required before starting at SU. Seattle University requires all new students to provide documentation of vaccination or immunity from Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR).
In addition to the above immunizations, it is strongly recommended that you complete the usual childhood vaccine series and consider the Meningococcal vaccine. Immunization experts have issued a new vaccination recommendation for meningococcal disease stating that all first-year students living in residence halls should be immunized against meningococcal disease, a rare, but potentially fatal, bacterial infection commonly referred to as meningitis.
Immunization records can be uploaded to seattleu.medicatconnect.com beginning in May 2018.
More information regarding submission of immunization records and student health insurance can be found in the box that says "Immunizations and Health Insurance" on the "New Redhawk Next Steps" online course.
As stated in your acceptance letter, initial admission is provisional and contingent upon the successful completion of any coursework in progress. Enrolling freshmen must submit final transcripts listing all final grades, and confirming graduation by July 15 if enrolling for fall quarter. Those having completed college coursework while enrolled in high school (e.g. Washington state "Running Start") must submit official college transcripts by this deadline as well.
Failure to provide your final transcript(s) will result in a hold being placed on your record, delaying registration for subsequent quarters.
Please note that if your academic performance declines following acceptance, bringing your cumulative GPA below an acceptable level; if you drop or fail coursework in which you were enrolled at the time of acceptance; or if you fail to graduate, Seattle University reserves the right to withdraw acceptance. It is essential that you confer with Admissions Office personnel promptly if you experience any of these academic difficulties following your initial acceptance.
