Username: Student ID Number
Password: Student ID Number
Other Enrollment forms will require your ID number as well.
Student ID Number Information
- A Student ID number is created for a student only after a student has paid the $350 general deposit to the Admission Office and has registered for a SOAR session.
- If you have not paid the $350 general deposit to the admissions office, please send that payment into the admissions office. The admissions office will accept credit card payments for the general deposit over the phone. You may call them at 517/629-0321.
- If you have not yet registered for a SOAR session you may do so online. You do not need a Student ID number to register for a session.
Once you have paid the general deposit and registered for a SOAR session you will be sent a confirmation letter via email and a secondary hard copy via US mail. Your student ID number is listed on the SOAR confirmation letter, just below your name in the upper left hand corner. Student ID numbers begin with "002014". Do not use admission number that begins with the @ sign. If you cannot locate your student ID number or a reasonable time has passed and you have not received a confirmation letter please call the SOAR Office at 517/629-0433 or contact us by email.
