Welcome to SOAR

SOAR stands for Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration, and that is a good summary of what you will accomplish through the program. Even if you earned college credit or an associates degree while in high school, you will receive information necessary to enroll and succeed in the university setting. As an incoming first-year student, you are required to complete SOAR.
