Your SOAR Commitment

Students that have been admitted into fully online programs demonstrate to Georgia Southern an intent to enroll and commitment by registering for a SOAR date. This SOAR date is set to the first day of classes as online students do not have a formal SOAR event to attend. Once you register for that commitment date, your academic advisement team will be notified and begin informing you of next steps specific to your program.
