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

Spring 2024 admits will attend SOAR on campus in January 2024. Keep an eye on your email! More information will be sent in mid to late November. 

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.
