First-Year Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR)

UH West O‘ahu offers first-year students several experiences throughout their first year to welcome them to their new campus and to ease the transition to college. Enrolling students begin by completing an Online ‘Ike session covering registration and academic requirements. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in all opportunities.
