Family

At FAU, “family” is defined as anyone our students feel impacts their lives, through trust, love, and support. Adult family members who are interested in attending SOAR with their students are strongly encouraged to do so. Transfer Family SOAR is held with Transfer Student SOAR for the first half. When students go to advising, families go to their separate Family SOAR session. Due to space limitations, we are not able to have families go with their students to advising.

Family SOAR provides an opportunity to see and learn about FAU in a deeper way and make connections with university staff and other families. It also provides families with the tools to be of support to their new FAU student(s).

Transfer Family SOAR costs $27 per person. This includes coffee during check-in and a branded FAU lanyard.
