Welcome to SOAR! Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration
Welcome new Firebirds to the University of the District of Columbia. We are excited to have you join the Firebird Nation. We encourage all new Firebirds to attend SOAR.
SOAR ensures a smooth transition into the University and sets you on a path to “Take on the World.” The University offers SOAR for all new and readmitted students pursuing a bachelor’s or associate’s degree. Student Orientation, Advising and Registration serves as a formal introduction to the Firebird Nation (UDC) and also provides tips and information you will need to know about campus as a new Firebird.
We encourage you to ask questions, participate and make new Firebird friends, as you learn what is expected of you as a new member of the Firebird Nation!!!
