SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration) is the new student orientation program at Miami Regionals. Accepted students are sent information that directs them to visit the "Regional Student Checklist" by logging into their myMiami account to register for any applicable assessments and their SOAR program. You must know your UniqueID and password to login to myMiami.

Due to the coronavirus restrictions, our institution has decided to shift ALL of summer 2020 orientations into an online format. To our students who already registered for an in-person orientation, you should be receiving an email from us during the week of 3/16/2020 and will be automatically moved to the appropriate online orientation. We were well-positioned to make this shift and look forward to orienting you virtually!

During Online Orientation, students will:

  • Receive a campus tour;
  • Learn how to get involved;
  • Discover campus resources available to students;
  • Meet current and incoming Miami Regionals students; and,
  • Set up a meeting to schedule your classes with academic advising virtually!

All of our orientations, whether taken online or in-person, have an orientation fee of $40 to cover the costs of staffing, supplies, and software. The fee for attending SOAR is added directly to your bill.
