It is required of newly-admitted freshmen and transfer students that they attend Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR). At SOAR, students will receive general information about CSULB and will learn specific information about the Liberal Studies major. New Liberal Studies students will be advised into their courses by a Liberal Studies SOAR advisor on their registered SOAR date. Students cannot enroll into their first-semester courses without attending SOAR.
