Now that you’re registered for classes, it’s time to acclimate to Oregon Tech, meet fellow students, and get ready for a successful year!


Oregon Tech’s SOAR program provides new and incoming students and their families with experiences that aid in the university transition process. We inform students of the support available to them and give them opportunities to learn about student involvement, academic success, and the importance of making connections with other students, faculty and staff.


  • Find Support - Sense of Belonging and Resources

  • Explore Opportunities - Student Involvement and Career Exploration

  • Achieve Academic Success - Skills & Strategies

  • Build Resiliency - Continuing to SOAR at Oregon Tech


Then, our term kicks off with the Week of Welcome each year on the weekend preceding the start of fall term classes. All students join the SIB Team (Student Involvement & Belonging) for daily activities and tons of fun. 

Students, you will need to use the email and password that you used when you first applied for admission to Oregon Tech to access this registration. Please reach out to Admissions if you are having any issues.
