SOAR Registration

SOAR (Student Orientation and Registration) is offered each summer for entering college freshman. It gives first-year students an opportunity to become familiar to life at Southern Union and to register for fall semester classes early.  It is strongly recommended that all freshmen attend a SOAR session. For more information, contact Alecia Lockwood at 256-395-2211, extension 5153 or by email at alockwood@suscc.edu

"Tuition can be paid anytime between the date of your SOAR registration and August 12, 2019.  ALL schedules that are UNPAID after August 12 WILL be dropped on August 13 and you will need to go online and re-register so please keep a copy of your schedule."


Prior to attending SOAR:

Be sure to complete the SUSCC online application for general admission. Students will need to submit a copy of a photo ID to the Admissions Office. ID's can be submitted in person or emailed to admissions@suscc.edu. Students must also have any financial aid applications completed prior to attending SOAR or registration.  For additional information on the steps to apply - click here.

New college students must have appropriate ACCUPLACER, ACT, and/or SAT scores to register for classes.  If the ACCUPLACER test is required, testing must be completed prior to the start of the SOAR session.  Please refer to the Placement Testing page for additional information.
