Welcome Future Badgers! We're excited to connect with you!

We are excited to help start your journey as a Badger! This website will be your guide for your SOAR experience. SOAR stands for Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration and is coordinated by the Center for the First-Year Experience (CFYE). At SOAR, you will begin your transition to UW–Madison by learning about academic advising, degree requirements, and campus resources. You will also enroll in your first-semester courses. We will post regular updates about SOAR to ensure you are prepared for your transition to UW-Madison.
