Fall 2020 Students

If you are a freshman or transfer student who will start classes on August 24, you will attend a two-day or one-day SOAR program during the summer. By choosing a two-day program, you will have the opportunity to stay in a residence hall, explore downtown Indianapolis, build connections, and make memories with future classmates.

2020 SOAR programs will take place on the following dates.

  • Friday, April 17 (one-day SOAR)
  • Thursday-Friday, June 11-12 (two-day SOAR)
  • Thursday-Friday, June 25-26 (two-day SOAR)
  • Thursday-Friday, July 16-17 (two-day SOAR)
  • Friday, July 17 (one-day SOAR, transfer students only)

Transfer students are encouraged to choose a one-day SOAR to best fit your needs. However, you are welcome to attend a two-day SOAR if you would like a more comprehensive and social orientation experience.

International students have the option to select a date for phone advising so you can speak with your advisor before arriving. If you select a phone advising appointment, you will be automatically registered to complete SOAR on August 20.

During SOAR, you will:

  • Connect with your future classmates, current students, faculty, and staff.
  • Hear from faculty about what to expect in your classes.
  • Find out about student services and resources that will help you succeed.
  • Meet with your academic advisor and register for classes.
