What to do before SOAR

  • Pay your $200 admission deposit. Students may not register for classes without payment of this deposit.
  • Students with ACT or SAT scores within the last two years and students with applicable math and English transfer credit do not need to complete the Roosevelt University Assessment (RUA) placement examination. Please see the Roosevelt University Assessment page for more information.
  • Before attending SOAR, you will need to log into RUAccess with your 9-digit Roosevelt student ID number. You must complete this process before you will be able to register for classes. You received your ID number in your acceptance packet. A short RU Access tutorial video is available online.
  • Complete a university housing contract or exemption.  For more information, visit the Residence Life website.
