SOAR New Student Guide


SCC’s SOAR (Scottsdale Orientation, Advising and Registration) is required for all new students seeking a degree, certificate or university transfer. Sessions are designed to help you navigate those first few weeks of class, be successful throughout your college career, meet other students, meet with an academic advisor, select classes for your first semester & register for your first semester classes.

Supplemental to your SOAR session, we have put together a New Student Guide to SCC for you! There's tons of great information, some of which we’ll talk about during your NSO session that can assist you as a new student at SCC.


Copies of the guide will not be available at SOAR because SCC is a member of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, and we are making increased efforts to be a more sustainable institution of higher education. You, of course, are welcome to print your own copy of the booklet, or to join us in our drive for improved environmental consciousness and check back to this website for the info contained in the New Student Guide to SCC. It’s pretty great to be green—especially if you're an Artichoke!

See you at SOAR and welcome to SCC!
