SOAR: Starting Out at Roosevelt

Roosevelt’s registration program for all new undergraduate students*

Starting Out At Roosevelt (SOAR) is now closed but it is not too late to register for Fall 2014 classes!  Your next step is to make an appointment with an academic advisor.

  •  First, you will need to make an appointment with your academic advisor.  At your appointment, you will review the class schedule, discuss your academic interests and register for classes.
  • Next you will have your Roosevelt student ID photo taken and receive your student ID so you’re ready the first day of class.
  • Finally, you will receive follow up information from the financial aid and student accounts offices about your financial aid package, your bill, and payment options.  Depending on the day and time of your advising appointment, a financial aid counselor or student accounts representative will be available to talk with you.

Take the next step: contact your advisor as soon as possible.  Below are the contact numbers for the advisors based on your major:
