SOAR: Starting Out at Roosevelt

Roosevelt’s registration program for all new undergraduate students*

This is an exciting time, going to college. Momentous. And busy. We'll help you get all of the important tasks done and out of the way before orientation begins; so that you can focus on being a new student at Roosevelt.

Launch your college career at SOAR.

During SOAR, you will take care of all of the necessary pre-college business with help from student support team members in each of the following areas:

  • Financial aid
  • Student accounts
  • Advising
  • Course registration

Not only will you be able to meet with your academic advisor and register for classes, but you will also have the opportunity to meet with representatives from the financial aid and student accounts offices. They will guide you through your financial aid package, your bill, and billing options.

We look forward to seeing you!

Get ready: SOAR.

    Your first step is to submit your $200 admission deposit. Then register for a SOAR session.
