SOAR is a new event at Foothill College that will give priority registration to incoming freshman students who complete an orientation and assessment tests (math and English) prior to Fall Quarter 2014. Whether you're a high school senior getting ready to start college classes this summer or fall, or a post-high school student looking to begin working on your educational goal, sign up for a SOAR workshop to get started. You must register for a SOAR workshop.
Steps to Prepare for Your SOAR Workshop
Plan Now, Get Priority Later
Beginning this fall, new state laws will give priority registration to students who complete an orientation and assessment, work with a counselor to develop an education plan, succeed in their classes and make progress toward completing their academic goals.
“To help new students receive priority registration, Foothill College is presenting one-stop SOAR enrollment workshops this spring so that you can complete required assessment, orientation and education plan development well before Fall Quarter gets under way in September,” says Foothill College Vice President of Student Services Denise Swett, Ed.D. “The thoughtful planning you do now will ensure that your Foothill experience is streamlined and successful.”
In order to register for subsequent quarters, new laws will require all California community college students to file an individual education plan, maintain academic good standing and demonstrate progress toward completion of their academic goals.
