Congratulations on your acceptance to The University of Texas of the Permian Basin! We are excited to welcome you to the Falcon family. 

Your success is our priority. Our Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR) Program is designed to facilitate your academic and social transition to UTPB. We'll teach you what it means to be a Falcon and make sure that you are actively engaged in your college experience.

During SOAR you will:

  • Learn about academic programs, resources, and University policies
  • Learn about expectations both inside and outside the classroom
  • Be introduced to the campus community and learn UTPB traditions
  • Be advised and register for classes
  • Meet other incoming students/families
  • Get your questions answered
