The Summer Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) process is designed to get you ready to attend Wartburg College in the Fall.  At SOAR, you will meet with your academic advisor, register for classes, meet our amazing orientation leaders, and meet some new friends along the way.  Additionally, you will receive pertinent information about financial aid, housing, meal plans, student employment, and academic support.

The overnight SOAR Days are a great opportunity to kick off your Wartburg experience and will give you a taste of what it is like to be a Knight. If you plan to attend an overnight SOAR, you must arrive the prior to the date listed.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at Wartburg!
