Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR)

Welcome to the family!

Congratulations on your decision to attend Marian University. The next few years will be among the most exciting and memorable of your life. 

The first step is attending a new student orientation session, during which you'll meet with academic advisors and register for classes, among other things. We call these our SOAR sessions. 

Once you're fully admitted to Marian University, please register for SOAR to reserve your spot.

  • Dates for upcoming sessions are listed below.
  • Click "Register for SOAR" to register online.

Preparing for SOAR

Please read and review all SOAR materials and register for a SOAR session as early as possible. Sessions designed especially for family members are also available throughout the day. 

During SOAR, you will:

  • Learn about becoming a Knight
  • Hear from faculty about the classroom experience
  • Connect with your future classmates, current students, faculty, and staff
  • Find out about student services and resources that will help you succeed
  • Meet with your academic advisor and register for classes

If you have questions or need information, contact us. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
