SOAR Program Details

The SOAR program provides a pathway for returning adult learners to attend UM-Dearborn and earn their degree who might not be able to do so without the resources the program offers. Students in SOAR are generally referred to the university by community colleges, local human service agencies, and community organizations.

Mission Statement

The University of Michigan-Dearborn SOAR Program increases access to post-secondary education for nontraditional adult learners experiencing socioeconomic challenges, facilitates admission to the university using a holistic model, and retains admitted students by providing a wide range of support, opportunities, advocacy and resources.

In partnership with local human service organizations and community colleges, SOAR is a tangible representation of the University’s Metropolitan Vision to provide access to higher education, advance economic prosperity, and grow the number of college educated individuals in southeastern Michigan.
