If you are a student who is pursuing any COS certificate, AA degree, or transfer requirements, and are new to COS, you will want to participate in the Siskiyous Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) activity. This is a required activity held on the main Weed campus and is specifically geared toward all incoming College of the Siskiyous students. During SOAR sessions, students will receive orientation, advising, a class schedule and a campus tour. New student placement tests must be scheduled and completed prior to scheduling your SOAR session due to limited testing times. Please call the Counseling and Support Services Office at (530) 938-5353 with any questions or to sign up for SOAR. Each session has limited availability.
As a reminder, students may also register for classes online at www.siskiyous.edu. The College of the Siskiyous is committed to providing you with offerings that will allow you to continue the pursuit of your educational goals. For more information, contact the Weed Campus at (530) 938-5555 or the Yreka Campus at (530) 842-1245. The Weed Campus can also be reached toll-free by calling (888) 397-4339.
