Incoming freshmen who plan to attend the University of Tennessee at Martin during the fall semester can get prepared for college life by attending the Summer Orientation and Registration (SOAR) program.
Incoming freshman and parents are highly encouraged to attend one of the three two-day SOAR programs scheduled for June 7-8, June 28-29 and July 16-17.
Students will get the opportunity to meet with academic advisers and register for classes; tour the campus, residence halls and University Village housing; receive information about student activities, housing and financial aid; and hear detailed information about First-Year Initiative (an orientation for freshmen the week before classes).
Students and parents will participate in a variety of informational sessions such as those on student health services, public safety, bookstore, student employment and other topics. Additional concurrent sessions also are scheduled for students and parents with topics including student activities, Greek life, housing and meal plans.
Administrative offices will be open and students and parents will get additional time to visit with UT Martin personnel in housing, admissions and financial aid.
Advance SOAR registration is required and, in order to attend SOAR, students must have applied for admission and received a tentative or final acceptance letter.
