Newly admitted students are required to complete Student Orientation Advising and Registration (SOAR) prior to enrolling in classes at Northwest State. SOAR is a comprehensive program, full of information that is intended to enhance your success in college.

Keep in mind that classes will be filling quickly, so the sooner you complete a SOAR program, the more flexibility you will have when choosing your class schedule. Students with schedule restrictions are encouraged to complete SOAR as early as possible.

Students can complete SOAR online by following the instructions below. If you have any questions regarding online SOAR, please contact

Before you complete Student Orientation Advising and Registration, there are a few things that you will need to have completed.  1) Complete the ACCUPLACER Assessment. 2) Have all transcripts submitted. High school/GED transcripts should be submitted to the admissions office, while college transcripts should be submitted to the registrar’s office.

How to Register
