(Summer Orientation Advisement and Registration)

Is a day long event required for all freshmen and transfer students coming in with 21 or fewer post high school credits, is your introduction to UW-Superior! You'll connect with current students, staff and faculty as you learn about UW-Superior and its services. You'll also plan your semester and register for fall classes.

International Students

You will receive information regarding orientation programming from the International Programs Office and First Year Experience. For questions regarding international student orientation programming, please contact Carol Knoble.



  • All new freshmen students coming in with 21 or fewer post high school credits will be assessed a $150 orientation fee.  This fee will be charged directly through your student bill and is non-refundable regardless of attendance and participation in orientation programming.  
  • Students are able to switch SOAR dates one time without a penalty. Students who want to switch more than once will be charged a $25 change fee per date that is rescheduled. Students who skip, miss or do not attend their scheduled SOAR date will also be charged a $25 change fee for each missed date.


  • Placement testing MUST be completed at least 2 weeks prior to your SOAR date. Those who do not complete their placement tests at least 2 weeks prior to their SOAR date will be required to reschedule their SOAR date. View Regional Placement Testing Information and Schedules here.


  • Plan to attend the entire SOAR day. Those leaving early will not be able to register for classes and will need to reschedule their SOAR date. 
  • SOAR dates fill up fast. We encourage you to register early. In addition, the earlier you attend SOAR, the better course selection you will have available to you!
