New Student Checklists:

Starting at KPU isn't quite as easy as just showing up in September. You need to complete a number of tasks before arriving and throughout the first few weeks to jumpstart your success. We've put together these tasks into downloadable checklists for your convenience. 



New Student Orientation is…

Your opportunity to:

  • Discover KPU
  • Learn about services and resources
  • Meet fellow students and classmates
  • Receive guidance from senior students
  • Learn about the university experience at KPU
  • Have a ton of fun!

You can attend any Orientation date, but find out which one we recommend for your program: Which Orientation should I attend?

Orientation is a full programmed session (not drop-in), we encourage you to attend the full session.



International students are required to attend an orientation session as above. Orientation is highly encouraged for all new students, and is mandatory for International, Visiting, & Exchange Students.


Please attend both a Live Virtual Orientation and International Virtual Orientation.


Trades students beginning in February are encouraged to attend a separate Orientation. Please check back soon for the next Orientation date.

Trades or CADD Students beginning in January are encouraged to attend one of the above Orientations, even though it will not be on the KPU Tech campus.


KPU offers Orientation programs that adapt to the needs of all KPU students, including students with disabilities. KPU is happy to provide modified orientations for students with individual needs on the day of the event, or on a later date by request.
