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

Students who have paid their enrollment deposit will receive log-in information and instructions to register for SOAR through their personal SC Connect portal. 

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 both personal and academic 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 dates are:

  • April 24
  • June 10
  • June 11
  • June 14

SOAR Student and Guest Schedules
We will have a student and guest track at SOAR 2021. We would like to invite parents/ guardians/ guests to 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, SC101 Faculty Advisor, others in their SC101 section, and a 1:1 scheduled registration time. A more detailed schedule will be provided closer to your SOAR date.
