What is Transfer SOAR?

Transfer SOAR is a required day-long orientation experience for all incoming transfer students starting at Augsburg College in fall 2015 designed to help with the transition to Augsburg. Students will learn about college resources and services; have a chance to ask questions; meet fellow students, faculty, and staff; and discover why being a part of the Augsburg community is so rewarding.

Are students required to attend Transfer SOAR?

Transfer SOAR is required for all incoming transfer students starting at Augsburg College in fall 2015.

Should students still attend Transfer SOAR if they have already attended an orientation program at their previous institution?

Transfer SOAR is required for all incoming transfer students starting at Augsburg College in fall 2015 regardless of attendance at an orientation program at a previous institution. Transfer SOAR is a succinct orientation program that will offer 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 also address concerns and answer questions students may have about transitioning to Augsburg College.

Should students still attend Transfer SOAR if they will be commuting to campus?

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