SOAR Session Dates

SOAR sessions have not been set for incoming students for the Fall semester of 2015.  Stay tuned for additional information!


Most students will take a COMPASS test at SOAR. The COMPASS success plan will allow us to determine your Math and English college readiness. COMPASS will also assist your advisor with registering you for classes. It may be helpful to look at sample questions before taking the COMPASS tests. Visit the following sites to get an idea of what to expect.

If you are a student with a disability, we encourage you to contact the Office for Disability Services prior to your SOAR date in order to determine appropriate accommodations. Contact ODS at 217-735-5050, ext. 7227, or

There will be a financial aid workshop at SOAR. Please bring with you: 2013 tax return, 2013 W-2, FAFSA pin numbers, listing of savings and investment amounts, so that we can help you complete your financial aid process with Lincoln College.

**Residence Hall Tours will be given at the end of the day. All interested students and parents should meet back in the Lincoln Center.
