The Office of International Programs & Global Education recognizes that your transition to the Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) is complex. You are not only beginning studies at a new school, you are entering a new country and culture. This experience can be both exhilarating and, at times, overwhelming! With this in mind, our office has developed a series of customized orientation programs for all new international students entering LWTech. Our goal is to support and enhance your transition by providing essential information about your immigration responsibilities, an introduction to the LWTech community, an opportunity to meet other new international students, and much more.
All new students are required to attend the International Student Orientation.
