Update regarding COVID-19 and Orientation

Welcome, new Golden Eagle!

We are excited that you've chosen Tennessee Tech! As a new college freshman, you might be asking, "How will I know who my advisor is?", "What classes will I take in the Fall?", "What are my next steps to enroll at Tech?", and a number of others. The Office of New Student & Family Programs has created SOAR (Student Orientation, Advisement, & Registration) for recent high school graduates joining Tech in the fall.

Our SOAR program will help finalize your enrollment for your upcoming fall semester. During the two-day session, we'll provide you information to help with your transition to our campus, review and finalize information about your academic major, share more about Tech's student life, provide resources available to help you succeed, and ease any concerns as you get ready to take flight as a Golden Eagle!

Registration Info

Registration for SOAR 2020 will open during the Spring semester. Prior to registration opening, admitted students will receive information about how to register for a session and complete their enrollment to Tech. If you have any questions regarding SOAR or completing your enrollment to Tennessee Tech for the fall semester, please contact us!
