Session Requirements

Students are required to attend all parts of the SOAR program in order to receive their Fall schedule and complete their enrollment to the University.

We ask that students and parents select an available date in which they can fully participate in all of the program's activities.

An example itinerary is located by clicking on SOAR Overview. Students and their guests will receive a detailed itinerary at SOAR check-in.

All students registered for SOAR should log into their reservation (using the instructions provided in their orientation invitation) to confirm the session they are registered to attend. If you have questions, please contact the Office of New Student & Family Programs at
