  • What is Summer Orientation & Academic Registration (SOAR)?

    +
  • It is our goal to help first-year students get connected, learn more about Huron and Western, and meet members of our community before they start school in September.  At the SOAR Session, you will:

    • Select your courses
    • Create a course timetable and register for your courses
    • Learn about Huron and Western services, the campus and university life
    • Take a campus and residence tour
    • Meet staff and faculty
    • Meet other first-year students

    Parents are welcome to attend. There will be separate sessions for parents to learn about the first-year experience at Huron and have their questions answered.

  • What if I live outside Ontario?

    +
  • Students who live outside of Ontario are welcome to book an online or phone appointment with an Academic Advisor to complete their SOAR Session, instead of coming to Huron. To book this session, call 519-438-7224 ext. 244 or email huronsss@uwo.ca with the following:
    • Your Name
    • Student Number
    • Contact phone number and email address
    • Dates and times you're available for a session (times are available beginning in late-June).
    Note: Schedule your SOAR Session early in the summer to increase your freedom and flexibility in course selection and timetabling. Students will be sent a Registration Guide in mid-June to prepare them for their SOAR Session.
