Welcome! Information for Admitted Students

Congratulations on your decision to join the UW-Madison community. Your first step to becoming a UW–Madison student is attending Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR).

SOAR gives you a closer look at what life is like for a UW–Madison student. As you visit campus and discover the exciting resources waiting for you, you'll begin to feel at home.

Information for summer SOAR 2015 will be available by March 1. Until then, sign up for placement testing.

The SOAR reservation system opens:

  • Transfer Students: April 6
