Southern’s Orientation, Advisement, and Registration

About Virtual SOAR

SOAR is Georgia Southern’s new student orientation. During SOAR you will learn about university’ policies, register for classes, and meet other students. There will be no in-person SOAR session for Spring 2021 students. New students will attend SOAR via Zoom. This online event will match the date and time you register for. You will receive an additional email after you register with important next steps. Orientation is mandatory for all new students.

How to Register

To register for your Virtual SOAR, log into your Admission Status Check Page, click on the “Orientation” tab at the top of the page, and follow the link to our reservation website. You will then select your SOAR session.
