Summer Opportunity for Advising and RegistrationSOAR

Academic advising and course registration at La Verne begin with SOAR: Summer Opportunity for Advising and Registration. This year’s online SOAR will allow you to conduct important business with the university prior to the start of the new academic year. All newly admitted students are required to complete online SOAR and sign up to meet with their academic advisor.

Through online SOAR, students and parents will learn about academic programs and services and are introduced to the policies and  procedures that guide and shape the university.

Most important, La Verne’s committed faculty advisors, will help incoming students develop a semester schedule of classes via academic advising!

ALL SOAR STEPS ARE NOW INTEGRATED WITHIN YOUR APPLICATION PORTAL:

Once you log in to your application portal, the items in your checklist will guide you through completing online SOAR requirements, and help you sign up for an appointment with an academic advisor to register for classes.

Log in to your application portal with the email address you used to apply to the university, to complete the following steps:

Step 1: Academic advising videos  
These four videos will cover an introduction to our academic policies, what happens during advising appointments, strategies for staying on track for graduation, and how the university protects your academic information. Watching these videos first will help ensure a more effective advising experience.

Step 2: Select your FLEX 
After you watch all four videos, you will be able to select your top three options for your FLEX (First-Year Learning Communities). Your FLEX selection will determine two of the four classes you will take during the fall semester. A list of FLEX options and descriptions is available in the application portal.

Step 3: Complete the writing assessment 
If we do not have an SAT or ACT score on file for you, you will complete a writing assessment to ensure you are placed into the correct English course. The assessment is not an English test, but a few questions will help you pick the right class before you meet with an academic advisor.

Step 4: Sign up for an advising appointment  
Once you complete the above steps, your checklist will be updated and you can schedule an appointment with an academic advisor in your major. During your appointment, you and your advisor will discuss your educational goals, build a class schedule, and start registering you for classes.
