Students touching Pioneer Rock

Are you raven ready?

 

SOAR

SOAR is more than just a fancy acronym–it’s our desire for you! We want you to spread your “wings” and fly towards a life lived to the fullest. SOAR is your first stop in that journey. 

SOAR is required for all incoming first-year students. At SOAR, you’ll have the opportunity to meet other future Ravens, learn more about campus resources, engage with faculty in your chosen major, and tour your future home for the next few years. You’ll not only walk away with your student ID, but a deeper understanding of what it means to be a student at Anderson University! 

CAMPUS information

Student ID

At SOAR, you’ll receive your student ID. If you were unable to attend an in-person SOAR, it’ll be important to send your photo to your admissions counselor so an ID can be created for you for the start of Welcome Weekend. 

Parking Pass

For students bringing a car to campus, we highly encourage you to purchase your parking pass online, prior to move-in. Passes can be purchased online after July 15, 2022 here. Passes will be mailed to you until one week before classes start. After that, you can pick up your parking pass during Welcome Weekend.

Working on Campus

For incoming students interested in working on campus, job openings will be available once the school year begins. Priority will be given to students who are eligible for Work Study. If you have any questions, please contact Pauletta Swank in Work-Life Engagement at pjswank@anderson.edu or (765) 641-4132.

Ordering Textbooks / Slingshot

All incoming students are automatically opted into the Slingshot program with a default preference for rental books (the most affordable). If you choose to opt out and purchase your books elsewhere, or would like to change your book preferences, click here

Your username is your AU email address, and your password is your student ID number (if you don’t know your student ID, ask your admissions counselor). If for any reason this is not working, click on the “Forgot Password” link and follow the prompts. For more specific questions, please email bookstore@anderson.edu.

Setting Up Payment Plans

We use Nelnet, our third party billing provider, for payment plans. Each month, the Business Office emails these electronic statements to students. The first bill will be sent out in July.

We encourage students to make trusted family members/guardians authorized users on their Nelnet account. If family members are authorized users, they will have their own log-in and will be able to view your student account, make payments, etc. For more information, you can contact our Business Office at studentaccounts@anderson.edu or visit them on our website.
