Dates and Schedules

We offer SOAR sessions in two formats: two day sessions students beginning in fall and one day sessions for students beginning in spring and summer. Both formats introduce you to life as a Missouri State Bear, provide academic advising and register you for your first semester of classes.

We encourage you to choose the earliest session that is convenient for you and your family. Space in each session is limited and we don’t have waiting lists.

Be aware that the sessions listed here may not be available to you; all open, available sessions will appear as options in our online registration system.
