New Veteran Orientation Class:

The Veterans Resource Center conducts orientation sessions for newly arriving student veterans and their family members. Attendance of an orientation session is mandatory for all veterans and eligible family members using VA education benefits and is highly recommended for all other student veterans.

Orientation sessions are generally held during the last two weeks of the academic quarter and during break periods between quarters. Please call 425.640.1175 to find out the dates for the next orientation sessions or to register for a session. 

Orientation sessions meet at the Veterans Resource Center, Lynnwood Hall, room 215.
