SOAR - Student Orientation

First Year SOAR is designed to help ease your transition into college life as an NCCU Eagle. During orientation, you will complete many of the steps needed for enrollment such as meeting with an academic advisor, taking your student ID picture, and attending educational workshops. You will also have the chance to meet other new Eagles in small groups hosted by our SOAR Leaders.

All first-year, incoming students must attend one of the following sessions:
