Welcome Fall 2024 admits! More information regarding attending SOAR will be available in March 2024.

We are excited to help start your journey as a Badger! This website will be your guide for your SOAR experience when information is available.

SOAR stands for Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration and is coordinated by the Office of Student Transition and Family Engagement (OSTFE). During SOAR, you will begin your transition to UW–Madison by learning about academic advising, degree requirements, and campus resources.
