SOAR - Student Orientation, Advising and Registration

First-Year SOAR is designed to help ease your transition into college life as an Eagle. During SOAR, you will complete many of the steps needed for enrollment such as meeting with an academic advisor, taking your student ID picture, and attending educational workshops.
