Simpson Orientation, Advising, & Registration (SOAR)

A day devoted to making your transition to college easier

SOAR is designed to introduce you to college by helping you register for classes and giving you the best advice regarding transitioning to college life.

Participate in a SOAR day

Once you pay your enrollment deposit, you will have the opportunity to register for SOAR, Simpson Orientation Advising and Registration. For questions, contact firstyear@simpson.edu.

Simpson Orientation, Advising, & Registration (SOAR) is a complete introduction for new first-year students to Simpson College.  During your scheduled SOAR day, you will meet your faculty advisor, register for your first semester classes, receive all contact information and access to SC Connect and start building relationships with Simpson staff, faculty, and students. Throughout this process, you will have the guidance of a current student who will serve as your SC Leader both in the summer and again in the fall when you begin your college journey at Simpson. Send an email to firstyear@simpson.edu with questions.
