Family and Supporters

At Georgia Southern we want to ensure that all Georgia Southern family members and supporters feel prepared during their students’ transition to the university. Below, you will find ways during your student’s transition that you can engage and continue learning more. Welcome to the eagle nation!

Parent & Family Online Orientation Modules

Open now!

We are excited to share a new online platform that our Georgia Southern families and supporters can access to aid in their student’s transition to Georgia Southern. While your student has required online modules prior to attending SOAR, these are tailored to you as a supporter with your needs in mind. You have the ability to work through these modules at your own pace, pausing, and coming back to complete whenever works best for you.

Attend SOAR Orientation

SOAR orientation for Summer & Fall 2021 admits will be in a virtual format. We have spent this year working to revamp and build a program that is special to this incoming class of students and their supporters- you won’t want to miss out.

Do I Need To Register?

If you plan to attend SOAR orientation on a different device than your student, yes, the student will need to register you when they sign up. This will ensure that you receive day-of information to login as well as have the ability to attend specific sessions just for Georgia Southern supporters while your student is in their sessions.

Family Members and Supporters who attend SOAR will attend sessions both with and without their students. Sessions without your student will allow you to learn more about your role as a Georgia Southern Parent/Supporter.

How Many Guests Can Attend?

At this time, students are allowed to register one guest to have separate access to the SOAR event. If you are going to be watching from the same device, please note that you will not be able to access the guest track as your student will need to remain in their track.

How Much Is a Guest Registration?

Join the Parent & Family Association

The association provides access to members to local discounts, membership exclusive scholarships for their students, and hosts university-sponsored events. Learn more below!
