IF YOU ARE GRADUATING FROM HIGH SCHOOL THIS YEAR, we recommend that you complete your academic advisement process at a SOAR- Student Orientation Advising & Registration session. Click here for details.
Students are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment to assure there is adequate time to meet their needs. Walk-in sessions are intended to be shorter than scheduled sessions. If a walk-in session is not adequate, scheduling an appointment will be recommended.
