Summer Opportunity for Advising and RegistrationSOAR

Academic advising and course registration at the La Verne begins with SOAR: Summer Opportunity for Advising and Registration. It is a day to conduct important but necessary business with the university prior to the start of the new academic year while enjoying campus life and fun activities to help new students acclimate to life here.

Throughout their visit, students and parents learn about academic and non-academic programs and services and are introduced to the policies and  procedures that guide and shape the university. SOAR also grants the opportunity to meet and greet faculty, students, and staff and set up one-on-one appointments with Financial Aid and Student Accounts staff to discuss financing college education.

Most important, La Verne’s committed faculty advisors, staff, and students help the incoming class to develop a semester schedule of classes via academic advising!
