It is important to us that all students are given the right tools to begin their collegiate career at the University of Evansville.
SOAR: Student Orientation and Academic Registration
SOAR is a comprehensive program that begins the process of transition for incoming students at the University of Evansville. Families are strongly encouraged to attend the University's Family Orientation Program which takes place simultaneously.
Registration for each event is necessary in order to be scheduled for an advising and, registration appointment.
The SOAR program is a day-long, in-person program. Attendance at one SOAR is required for all new incoming students.
International students will attend SOAR III after arriving to the U.S. in August.
Upcoming SOAR Sessions Dates
SOAR Registration will open mid-March.
- SOAR I Friday, June 28, 2024
- SOAR II Friday, July 12, 2024
- SOAR III Friday, August 16, 2024
Every new student is required to attend one of the SOAR sessions. During SOAR, students will have an opportunity to meet with faculty, staff, and advisors; finalize courses for the fall semester; and receive important information about residence life, student involvement opportunities, student financial services, career development, the health center, and other campus entities.
The SOAR program gives students and parents a special preview of the University community. It also sets the tone of what we want entering students to do: SOAR, achieve new heights and succeed!
