SOAR - Siskiyous Orientation, Advising, & Registration

"Come SOAR with us!"

SOAR Days are here! This is an event held on the main Weed campus and is specifically geared towards all incoming College of the Siskiyous students. If you are a student who is pursuing any COS certificate, AA degree, or transfer requirements, and are new to COS, you will want to participate in SOAR. At SOAR students will receive orientation, advising, a class schedule and a campus tour. Your placement test must be scheduled and completed prior to scheduling your SOAR session due to limited testing times. Please call Counseling & Support Services (530) 938-5353 with any questions or to sign up for SOAR. Each session has limited availability.
