First-Year Student Orientation, Academics, and Registration (SOAR) Dates

This information applies only to students attending Boca Campus. Each session has limited space available, and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. SOAR reservations are NOT confirmed until the orientation fee payment has been submitted. SOAR reservations close automatically once they reach full capacity. Reservations close three (3) business days before a session starts. Please do not make any travel arrangements until you have completed your reservation, submitted your SOAR fee, and have received a confirmation email to your FAU email account. Not all SOAR session dates are available to all students.
