Simpson Orientation, Advising, and Registration (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.

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, and start building relationships with the class of 2028! 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. Students and guests will have separate schedules at SOAR.

You can register for SOAR on your student portal.
