Register for SOAR

What is SOAR?

SOAR is a fun, one-day event for incoming freshmen to help you jumpstart your college experience and introduce you to CSC. You’ll have the chance to connect with our fantastic staff and faculty and get together with our SOAR squad leaders.  You’ll also get to meet your other fellow Eagles who are just as excited as you are to start their college adventures. So prepare yourself for a great experience!

All new first-year students are required to attend a SOAR program. It’s an essential step in helping you determine your fall classes, register, and make that transition to college student.  If you are a new freshman and live more than 400 miles from campus or you have extenuating circumstances, please call our office.
