Enroll in a SOAR Session
We are so excited you have decided to become a Briton and we can't wait to help you get started on this new journey. Our SOAR program will introduce you to life at Albion College, while ensuring that this is a seamless and enjoyable transition for you.
Please read the following guidelines carefully before registering for SOAR.
All New Students Must Attend SOAR
Each new student is required to attend one of the SOAR sessions in order to enroll for the fall semester. A parallel program is offered for parents/families but parent and family participation is optional.
Student SOAR Registration Cost
There is no cost for each entering student participant. The student's lunch and other program expenses are covered by Albion College.
Parent/Family Registration & Cost
The participant fee for Parent/Family members is $10.00 per person and includes lunch and all program materials. Children under 12 may participate for $5.00. While we do ask that you register in advance, we do not accept pre-payment and ask that you pay your balance the day you arrive at your assigned SOAR program. Methods of payment acceptable on that day include cash, check, and credit card.
Special Physical and/or Dietary Needs
Select a Session
All SOAR session requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. New students will be asked to provide their first, second, and third choices for SOAR. Sessions will close as they reach capacity. Please do not assume that you will be placed in your first choice session (see registration confirmation below). However, the SOAR Program will do our best to match you to your highest preference, taking into account space availability.
You will receive onscreen confirmation that your information has been submitted to the SOAR Program Office when you complete your online SOAR enrollment form. Once processed, an electronic confirmation detailing the actual session to which you have been assigned will be sent by email to both the SOAR student and the primary family member. That email will be followed by a hard copy confirmation which will be sent to you via U.S. mail. Most SOAR enrollment are processed within two days after being submitted. Please allow time for processing and delivery of your written confirmation by U.S. mail.
