Advising for International Students


What Advisors Do

International Student Academic Advisors are crucial assistants who help students make important decisons about their academic and future career plans.


By working with an advisor, students are able to make the connection between their academic interests, degree requirements, and career opportunities.


Our International Student Advisors have all lived or traveled overseas, and know first-hand what it feels like to experience and adapt to a new language and culture.They help with issues of cross-cultural adjustment, information about Seattle or the United States in general, and anything else students need to be successful living and studying in the U.S.


There is a daily "drop-in" (no appointment needed) time as well as individual appointment times to meet advisors.

Appointment time slots will be made available between 3 – 3:30 p.m. on Fridays for the following week. This means that on Friday you may schedule an appointment for Monday-Friday of the following week.

What if the time I want is not available?

There are several ways to get time with an advisor. If the time you want is not open via online scheduling, and you've already checked all of the advisors' calendars, you can contact an advisor directly, speak with the staff at the front desk or call the International Education office. Remember, you may also meet with advisors during walk-in advising.
