What is Transfer SOAR?

Transfer SOAR is a required orientation experience for incoming transfer students designed to help with the transition to Augsburg College. Students will learn about college resources and services; have a chance to ask questions; meet fellow students; and discover why being a part of the Augsburg community is so rewarding.

Is Transfer SOAR required?

Yes, Transfer SOAR is required for all transfer students who are starting at Augsburg in fall 2014.

When and where is check-in for Transfer SOAR?

Transfer SOAR check-in and other pre-orientation activities will take place in the Oren Gateway Center Lobby from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m., and the program will conclude by 6:00 p.m.

What should transfer students do if they have attended an orientation program at their previous institution?

Many colleges and universities have great orientation programs that help students become familiar with their specific institution. However, each institution is different. Transfer SOAR is a succinct orientation program that will offer incoming transfer students the “nuts and bolts” of Augsburg College, but will not focus on broad transition issues that would be covered in previous orientation programs. Transfer SOAR will address concerns and answer questions students may have about transitioning to Augsburg College.

Should transfer students commuting to campus attend Transfer SOAR?

Yes, Transfer SOAR is designed for all transfer students, regardless of their resident or commuter status.

When do transfer students who will be living on campus move into their residence hall?
