Dear Future Bulldog:
University College and the Office of New Student Orientation welcome you and we are ecstatic that you chose to pursue your education at our beloved Alabama A&M University where bulldogs soar! BULLDOGS S.O.A.R. (Student Orientation And Registration) will be your first chance to embrace the many challenges college will present to you. The purpose of BULLDOGS S.O.A.R. is to enable new students to become competent, self-reliant learners who are devoted to and engaged in their higher education experience. S.O.A.R. will also provide of with priority selection of fall classes.
In support of this mission, BULLSDOGS S.O.A.R. will inform first-year students, transfer students (with fewer than 30 semester credit hours), and re-admitted students, or academic policies and procedures, help with the academic and social transition to higher education, prepare students to make reasoned and well-imformed choices, and foster a sense of community by acclimating individuals to the Alabama AM University campus. Attendance at a BULLDOGS S.O.A.R. session will assist new students in making their first semester as successfull as possible.
This information from BULLDOGS S.O.A.R. is extremely important, as is all of the information you receive from the university. As University College is your entry portal into the university it is imperative that you read all of the materials carefully and thoroughly. Misinterpreting or "scanning over" this information could result in lengthy delays that can be both costly and frustrating.
Again, we extend to you a warm welcome and look forward to meeting you soon!
