Move toward feeling more comfortable with your transition to university life! Register for Summer Orientation to Academics and Resources (SOAR). The SOAR program runs throughout the month of July. Programming varies depending on your faculty/program, so make sure you register for the correct day. Please note that Arts & Science also includes students in Concurrent Education, Computing, and Kinesiology and Physical Education. Students heading to the Bader International Study Centre in the fall should register for one of the BISC days, and not for Arts & Science.
Registration fees for SOAR 2016 are $45 +HST for student tickets and $30 +HST for guest tickets. There is a maximum of 2 guest tickets per student. The fee includes all programming, light refreshments upon your arrival in the morning, an all-you-can-eat lunch, and a parking permit for your program day.
Now that everyone’s applications and deposits are in, moving your student into residence is quickly becoming a reality! Soon, your student will begin their journey at Queen’s and starting a new adventure. Over the next few months, transition tips for parents and students will be posted periodically to help you prepare for residence – from Move In Day to Move Out.
This week’s Tip of the Week is all about Encouragement.
Encourage your student to contact us with any questions. Privacy laws prohibit us from discussing their residence agreement with you unless they provide us with written consent. By asking their own questions, they’ll begin the transition to a more independent lifestyle – and they’ll feel that much more comfortable asking questions while in residence.
If you or your student would like to attend information sessions, find opportunities to connect with upper-year students, faculty and staff, get some extra preparation for new academic expectations, and be introduced to on-campus resources and support services, why not register for our Summer Orientation to Academics and Resources (SOAR)?
Late applicants will be placed on a waiting list for residence.
$325.00 of your $525.00 deposit is refundable if you cancel in writing to Residence Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 3, 2016.
Half of the balance of your residence fees are due September 30, 2016; the remainder is due January 31, 2017.
While you’re applying for residence (or if you’ve done so already), why not register for SOAR? Queen’s Summer Orientation to Academics and Resources (SOAR) is a one-day program for incoming first-year students and their families that is designed to help ease the transition to university life. Information sessions, and opportunities to connect with upper-year students, faculty and staff, will prepare students for new academic expectations, answer their questions, and introduce them to on-campus resources and support services.
*Deadline not applicable to Exchange Students, who have until July 1st.
