How long do I need to stay?
SOAR is designed to set you up for success, so it is important to attend the entire program. Please plan your schedule accordingly to be able to attend for the full program. Depending on the date you select it is either a full-day or two days. For the full-day, plan to be on campus from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. For the two-day, plan to arrive at 9:30 a.m. on day one and leave after 1 p.m. on day two.
Do I need to pay a fee?
The SOAR fee is automatically charged to your student account and will appear on your bill in the fall. The SOAR fee is separate from the $100 enrollment deposit. The enrollment deposit is paid up front to hold your place in the class and later applied to your bill. The SOAR fee helps pay for the SOAR program and is automatically charged after your attendance.
