Student Life


Welcome to Freshman SOAR

Welcome to A&M-Texarkana! We are so excited to make you a part of our family here! You are on this page because you are a First-Year/Freshman entering college for the first time or less than 30 credit hours to transfer to Texas A&M University-Texarkana. If you are not a Freshman, we have information specific to Transfer Students here! and Parents here!

Student Orientation Advising and Registration (SOAR) is a two day program that was designed to guide each new student at Texas A&M University-Texarkana to success. SOAR is required for all new students entering Texas A&M University-Texarkana.  While at SOAR students meet other new students, get advice from current students, meet with an advisor, register for classes, learn A&M-Texarkana traditions, stay in a residence hall, and HAVE FUN!!!

Registration for Summer & Fall 2013 Orientation will open April 1, 2013!
