Student Orientation to Advising and Registration

What is SOAR?

Student Orientation to Advising and Registration or SOAR is a mandatory step in the new student process. SOAR covers important information that all new students should know about Green River including:

  • The resources available at Green River to support your educational goals
  • Placement options
  • Information about your program of study
  • How to register for classes (including receiving your PIN number)
  • What to expect for enrolling in future quarters

Who Completes SOAR?

SOAR is mandatory for all new Green River students with the following exceptions:

  • New Running Start students complete a separate mandatory orientation process after submitting an Enrollment Verification Form. Visit Running Start for more information on this process.
  • Transfer-in Students who have completed credit at another college should connect with an advisor in the Career & Advising Center to determine next steps. Please call (253) 833-9111 ext. 2640 or email beadvised@greenriver.edu for more information.
  • Students only attending Green River for one quarter and not planning to complete a degree or certificate should connect with an advisor in the Career & Advising Center to determine next steps. Please call (253) 833-9111 ext. 2640 or email beadvised@greenriver.edu for more information.
  • Students placing in Transitional Studies courses must complete the CASAS assessment prior to registering for classes. Upon completing CASAS you will meet with a Master Achiever Center (MAC) advisor for course registration.
