At SOAR, new students become a part of UNCG by interacting with other students, faculty, and staff in small, informal groups. Students will plan an academic program with an academic advisor, complete all registration procedures, and experience the unique culture and spirit of UNCG.

SOAR Dates

Session 1 – Friday, June 1st
Session 2 – Friday, June 8th
Session 3 – Monday, August 6th
Session 4 – Wednesday, August 8th

*Academic advisors will not be available during June Transfer & Adult SOAR. Transfer and Adult students attending June sessions must meet with their academic advisor before attending SOAR.


New Student Fee : $92

The New Student Fee is a standalone fee which covers all SOAR student program costs, accommodations and materials. Students do not pay their New Student Fee at SOAR. The new student fee is applied directly to the student account and cannot be waived.

The New Student Fee (SOAR fee) is still applicable if you attend SOAR, yet decide not to attend UNCG.

Advising and Registration by Appointment (ARA)

As a newly admitted transfer or adult student, you will be required to attend an Advising and Registration by Appointment meeting, ARA, with an academic advisor in your College or School prior to you being eligible to register for classes; ARA should be completed before your SOAR session. ARA allows transfer and adult students to benefit from a one on one advising appointment with an academic advisor. Transfer and adult students are still required to attend SOAR.

Fall Admittance

You can expect to receive emails to your iSpartan account from your College or Professional School beginning mid-spring with information on the next step you will need to follow.

It is required that you attend an ARA session before attending June SOAR, as advising is not offered at SOAR.

Please remember that although ARA is available before your SOAR session, you are still required to attend SOAR.
