Orientation (SOAR)

SOAR stands for “Student Orientation And Registration.” It is an opportunity for students to become familiar with the policies of KVCC, how to use the student portal effectively, and to register for your first semester of courses. SOAR sessions are for new KVCC students and those who are returning after a time away from the College.

All students who are new to KVCC, including students transferring to the College, those who are returning after more than two years away, and those who plan to complete all or most of their degree online, must attend a SOAR session.  Students will register for their first semester classes during SOAR. 

Register for a SOAR Session

To register for a SOAR session, login to your MyKV Portal. Your username is your lastname.firstname and your password is your student ID number. Check the session you would like to attend and then click Submit.

If you would like help registering for a SOAR session, please call Enrollment Services at (207) 453-5822.

What to bring to SOAR Sessions

Bring any outstanding paperwork.  Official transcripts in sealed envelopes, immunizations, and/or financial aid forms will be collected during Check-In.  All offices are open during SOAR and we encourage you to stop by after your session. Remember you will be registering for classes.  Bring any schedules you need to be mindful of when scheduling your classes. We also suggest that you wear comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing in accordance to the weather as you may need to walk between buildings.

Parents, partners, and guests are welcome to attend. While you are in your advising and registration sessions, there is an optional session for your guests or they are welcome to enjoy a bite in the Cafe and a walk around campus.

We do not recommend bringing children.


If you or a guest have a need for accommodations in order to attend SOAR, please contact the Dean of Students at 453-5019 in a timely manner (at least 2-3 days prior to the event) to discuss your individual situation.
