Virtual SOAR

Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR)

Rodney the Raven mascot with students on fall move-in day.

Join us for VIRTUAL SOAR to register for your classes and meet some of your fellow students. Once you have registered for Virtual SOAR, we will notify you if you have placement tests to complete. Once those tests are completed, a representative from Admissions will contact you to set up a virtual advising appointment with a faculty member to register for your fall classes. We look forward to learning more about you and helping you get everything ready for your arrival to our campus community. See you soon!

Due to ongoing concerns and the changing environment surrounding COVID-19, Anderson University is extending the deadline to confirm your intent to enroll and pay your enrollment deposit from May 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020.

Additional Virtual Events

“Anderson is a family!” You’ve probably heard that more than once since applying to AU. Even though COVID-19 altered a summer full of events, we are still committed to finding unique, safe ways to connect as a family. For the month of July we are offering a parent webinar to answer questions you may have about our return to campus plan for the fall and our COVID-19 safety precautions. Please join the head of our COVID Task Force, Sarah Neal as she shares how we will safely resume campus life in the fall.
