Shoreline Community College will be closed during winter break from December 21 - 25. Please plan ahead (for travel signatures, admissions, immigration, registration, etc.), as International Education will not be able to provide any services during this time.


International Student Orientation Program

December 28 - January 2 (No ISOP on January 1)


(ISOP Schedule Preview Coming Soon)

The International Student Orientation Program (ISOP) is very important for your success. Therefore, every international student is required to attend. We recommend arriving at least two days before ISOP begins. This will give you time to recover from a long trip and start your college career feeling good!


ISOP will be informative and fun. You will make new friends while discovering all that Shoreline Community College has to offer. So apply, get admitted and get ready! We're looking forward to seeing you soon!


During ISOP, you will have:

  • Math and English placement tests
  • a campus tour given by American students
  • academic advising and registration for classes
  • meetings with International Education staff
  • seminars about life and study in the USA
  • a tour of Seattle





















Orientation fee of $60 (one time fee for all new international students) will cover light refreshments and retention activities throughout academic year.
