Registration Instructions

NOTE: SOAR registration for students admitted for Summer and Fall 2017 semesters will open in APRIL.  Until this time, SOAR Springboard will not appear on students' Blackboard page.

Reserve your space in SOAR using the steps below; keep in mind that your space in a session is not reserved until you complete your registration online and submit payment.

Family member registration

Students can register up to two family members (if space allows) when they complete their own registration online. Space for family members to attend is limited, so we suggest registering to attend as early as possible.

Family members MUST be registered in advance of your session; no reservations will be accepted on the day of your session. Students can register family members who wish to attend SOAR with them on the Family Members screen of the SOAR reservation system. 

Register for your SOAR session

Step 1: Log in to My Missouri State using your BearPass login and password

Create your BearPass login and email account, if you have not yet done so.

Step 2: Complete SOAR Springboard

SOAR Springboard, our online pre-orientation program, consists of several modules and short quizzes that prepare you for your SOAR experience.

To begin, select the Blackboard 9.1 icon in the upper right of the My Missouri State portal, then select the SOAR Springboard link in the My Courses section on the right of the screen. (NOTE: your SOAR Springboard link may appear 1-2 business days from the creation of your BearPass login.)

After completing SOAR Springboard, select the Register now! button. You will be taken to the SOAR Checklist.

Step 3: Reserve your SOAR session date online

On the SOAR Checklist, select the Register to attend link in the Register for a SOAR session task. Follow the SOAR reservation system’s prompts related to Student and Family Member reservations and enter your payment information to complete and confirm your SOAR reservation. 

Upon completing your reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. This email will include instructions for preparing for your session, helpful information, SOAR parking permit, and more.

Step 4: Check your Missouri State email account and plan your trip

A confirmation email will be sent to your Missouri State email account upon completing your reservation. Read this email promptly, as it contains important information about preparing to attend your SOAR session. 

Updating or changing your reservation information

Update information regarding your SOAR reservation should it change. It is especially important to update the following information no later than five business days prior to your scheduled session: 

  • Family member attendance
  • Major
  • Pre-event accommodations

Follow these instructions to changing your reservation details: 

  1. Return to the SOAR reservation system by selecting the Register now! button at the end of SOAR Springboard, then the Register to attend link on the SOAR Checklist.
  2. On the My Reservation screen, select the Edit Section button for the section that contains information you need to change.
  3. Update the desired information, then select the Save and Continue button until you return to the My Reservation screen.
