Fall 2019 Students

All students are required to attend a SOAR session during the summer prior to enrolling in classes for the Fall term. SOAR sessions are led by current Georgia Southern students who will be a great resource for you to ask questions of and show you what it means to be a Georgia Southern student!

You will also be able to sit down with your academic advisor, who will advise you on which classes have been selected for you for your first semester.
