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'll receive an email from your admissions counselor with detailed information on registering for SOAR and your Foundations section. For questions, contact firstyear@simpson.edu.

Simpson Orientation, Advising, & Registration (SOAR) is a complete introduction for new first-year students to Simpson College. You will choose one of the scheduled days. 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. Throughout this process, you will have the guidance of a current student who will serve as your orientation 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.

The 2021 SOAR sessions are:

  • June 9 | virtual
  • June 10 | in person
  • June 11 | in person
  • June 14, morning | in person
  • June 14, afternoon | virtual

SOAR Student and Guest Schedules
We will have a student and guest track at SOAR 2021. Parents, guardians and guests can participate in the Guest Track for the day. We are also excited to provide a SOAR Schedule for the students that allow ample time for them to meet their SC Leader, Foundations Faculty Advisor, others in their Foundations section and a one-on-one scheduled registration time.
