Registration Instructions

Before you register

  • Please make travel, hotel, and other arrangements after you receive confirmation of your SOAR session via email. Permission will not be proved to attend closed sessions due to arrangements made prior to your SOAR session confirmation. 
  • Students are required to attend the entire SOAR session. Students who miss any portion of the program will not be allowed to register for classes and must attend another session.
  • Sessions reopen online automatically if space becomes available in a previously-closed session. No wait lists for closed sessions are kept.
