SOAR Information

Summer Orientation Registration will be open at the beginning of the 2016 year.

What is SOAR?

SOAR (Summer Orientation and Registration) is a 1-day orientation experience that is designed to introduce you to the university and ease your transition into college life. During the program, you will learn about UT Martin’s curriculum and campus resources, register for summer and/or fall classes, meet faculty and advisers, and begin to develop lifelong friendships with other new students.

How do I register for SOAR?

SOAR Registration will be open at the beginning of the 2016 year.


Do not wait to reserve your place at SOAR! Space is limited, and we can only accept reservations on a first come, first serve basis. In order to be guaranteed a spot at the SOAR of your choice, the student must have received a tentative or final acceptance letter, paid the fee for SOAR, and submitted complete immunization records to Student Health and Counseling Services. Give us a call at 731-881-7020 if you have any questions! Once we have received your application and immunization records, and payment has been confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email at the address listed on your SOAR application.
