SOAR Part I

This full day, in-person event will give you the opportunity to become more familiar with collegiate life at Detroit Mercy by meeting other new students, touring university facilities, learning about available resources and registering for classes. 

SOAR Part I will be held in June and July 2023.

SOAR Part II

This 60-minute, online module will give you additional new student information and can be completed any time before classes begin.

Launch SOAR Part II

 

Academic Advising

During SOAR or just before your SOAR session, you will meet with your academic advisor who will help you choose your classes.

Class Placement

While registering for the fall semester, your SAT/ACT and/or placement test results will be used to help place you in appropriate-level English, math, chemistry and foreign language classes. If you do not have an SAT/ACT score on file in the Admissions Office, you are required to take placement tests. Placement tests need to be completed at least two weeks before meeting with your academic advisor and attending SOAR.
