Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR)
Welcome to SOAR – Student Orientation, Advising and Registration!
On behalf of the staff and faculty of Wor-Wic Community College, I would like to
extend a warm welcome to all first-time college students. The goal of the SOAR program
is to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the information that you will
need to set you on the right path to becoming a successful student. Our SOAR program
is dedicated to ensuring that you will be properly oriented by the end of your session.
Best wishes as you embark on your educational journey!
