SOAR - Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration

Utah State University Logo

Spring SOAR

Spring SOAR is a concise, single-day orientation option for new students who will begin school during the spring semester. It has been designed to give a thorough orientation to the University while making the most of your time on campus. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and meet other incoming students.

A-Team facilitators will be on hand to assist you in the orientation and registration process. You will meet with your academic advisor and have a chance to create or modify your semester schedule while learning about important policies and procedures of Utah State University.

Online SOAR

Online SOAR is available for students not able to attend our on campus session. If you select SOAR Online as you sign up for SOAR (submit your Enrollment Confirmation), the link will be sent to the e-mail account you specify in late October.

The online orientation provides the information you will need before coming to Utah State. You will email your academic advisor as you complete SOAR Online, and he or she will write back to you and tell you what classes to take. You can then register for classes starting November 14.

Once you arrive on campus at the beginning of the semester, you can pick up your SOAR packet in the USU Card Office, Taggart Student Center room 212. It will include the following:

  • Student Handbook/Planner
  • Becoming a Learner book
  • Voucher for your student ID card ($15 value, your ID card will cost $15 without this)
  • Other helpful information
