Student Orientation, Advising & Registration (SOAR)

New to Reynolds and planning to start classes this spring?

You will need to attend a SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising & Registration) session. 

During SOAR, you will:

  • Learn how to navigate your MyReynolds account
  • Have the opportunity to speak with a financial aid representative
  • Be advised and receive a set of recommended classes for spring semester
  • Create your spring schedule
  • Discover free services like tutoring and student accommodations, and how to get involved in campus activities  

Before attending SOAR, complete the New Student Online Orientation and review the checklist. The pre-orientation checklist, including signing up for an on campus SOAR session in advance, must be completed before you come to an on-campus orientation session.
