Southern’s Orientation, Advisement and Registration

Fall 2020 – Minimester II

Students wishing to take classes during the fall 2020 semester should consider our second minimester term starting October 12th. We are no longer enrolling for the full fall term.

To enroll for October 12th, students must apply and be admitted to Georgia Southern for the fall 2020 term and register for Virtual SOAR through the orientation tab of their Admissions Status Check Page. There is no fee to register. Virtual SOAR is only required for new undergraduate degree-seeking students. Dual enrollment, transient, post-baccalaureate, auditor, re-admit, and graduate students are exempt.

Spring 2021

Students starting in the spring (January 2021) will be able to register for SOAR on October 20th. Visit the Admission Status Check Page’s Orientation tab on that date to register. Learn more about Spring SOAR on the tab labeled “Spring 2021” above.

Summer & Fall 2021

Students starting in the summer or fall of 2021 will be able to register for SOAR in February. Check back on this site for more information closer to that time.
