Sully's Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR)

                  

Congratulations on taking next step toward your college education! 

At the Office of New Student Programs, we are committed to making your transition to Sul Ross State University as smooth, informative, and fun as possible.

Sully’s Orientation, Advising, and Registration (S.O.A.R.) is designed to assist you in preparing for academic and social life at SRSU, while providing you the opportunity to get advised, register for classes, and finish any business transactions you need to complete before the semester starts.

At S.O.A.R. you will:

  • Learn about the academic programs offered at SRSU
  • Meet the academic community and learn classroom expectations
  • Be advised and registered for classes

S.O.A.R. Spring 2019 Semester:

Due to the proximity of S.O.A.R. to Spring Lobo Days, all incoming students are encouraged to register for both S.O.A.R. and Spring Lobo Days. By registering for S.O.A.R., you will be contacted by one of our Lobo Den advisors via telephone, who will assist you in completing your registration for classes. At Spring Lobo Days you will be able to meet with your professors, learn about campus resources, move into you residential unit, and get acclimated to life at SRSU. Please register for both events. If you are unable to register for classes via telephone, you will need to come to campus Friday, January 18th to register in person.

S.O.A.R Fall 2019 Semseter:

  • Dates will be posted pending approval. Thank you for your patience.

A full schedule for each SOAR Day event will be posted prior to the date and will also be emailed to registrants.
