Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR)

Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) is designed to help new, first-time college students begin at Jefferson Community and Technical College. Students will learn about academic advising, registration, financial aid, payment options, and the importance of choosing a program that matches their educational and career goals. Topics include the history of Jefferson and KCTCS, how to connect to college resources, and how to navigate Jefferson’s online platforms.

The health, safety, and well-being of our campus, community, and visitors is paramount as the College develops protocols in response to the global outbreak of COVID-19. With this in mind, Jefferson is offering all new students the option of completing their Orientation ONLINE through a live virtual session or by completing online modules. ***If you are unable to complete your SOAR online, please reach out to us about alternatives. We have EXTREMELY LIMITED in-person SOAR sessions for students who do not have access to a computer/phone with a camera.***

Please fill out the SOAR Form below to request your Orientation! A staff member will respond to you with your next steps within 72 hours.

Contact the Orientation Office at jf-orientation@kctcs.edu or 502.213.2624 if you have questions or need help!
