Orientation

SOAR Registration Info

Beginning early in March, students who have deposited with UE will be mailed information about our Summer Orientation and Academic Registration program (SOAR). This mailing will arrive from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students. The SOAR mailing will include the following:

  • A welcome letter from the dean of students that includes the students user name and Student ID number

  • Instructions for registering for a required SOAR session, as well as, housing and meal plan registration

  • Important testing and assessment information including the password for online foreign language placement testing

  • A parent’s packet of information including a letter from the dean, information from the Parent and Alumni office, and information about parent lodging and registration packages available for SOAR-we want parents to attend, too!

  • Important health information and required records so you can schedule a physical and gather immunization records

  • A preparing for SOAR checklist-also be sure to check this website to see “what to bring to SOAR” and “Welcome Week” information

The student fee that covers SOAR, as well as Welcome Week activities, has been included in your admission deposit. The SOAR fee for parents is based on the option package chosen and can be paid when registering online.

Please note: SOAR sessions are limited in size and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, you should complete your online SOAR registration form as soon as possible, as sessions fill quickly. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 800-423-8633, ext. 2500.

Please visit the “Welcome Week” page for additional information about Welcome Week, a program required of entering freshmen which occurs over the week preceding the start of fall classes.
