About Student Orientation, Advising
and Registration


The department of Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) facilitates the transition of our diverse student population by fostering their advancement toward graduation through our commitment to providing student-centered programming and services.


SOAR directs its major efforts toward the advising, registration and orientation of newly admitted Long Beach State students as they make their academic and social transition to the University. We corroboratively administer the university’s Student Orientation, Advising & Registration (SOAR) program and support CSULB's First Year Experience (FYE) program with the Dean of Students, Learning Assistance Center and Career Development Center.
