MyUW Madison - Using the "Preparing for SOAR" App
The "Preparing for SOAR" app in MyUW will walk incoming students through a basic questionnaire that will gather information about academic interests as well as AP and IB test scores. Only incoming students can access the app; applicants and students that have been admitted (but have not expressed their intent to enroll in courses) will not be able to access the app.
Using the App
There are four pages/steps for the app: About You, AP Scores, IB Scores, and Summary.
Use the Select interest drop down menu to choose an academic area or career path that you are interested in. Click the +Add Interest button to add the interest to your list. Repeat as necessary for as many fields/career paths that interest you.
Enter any additional comments that you may wish to share with your SOAR advisor. When finished, click Save & Next.
Use the Select subject and Select a score drop down menus to enter any AP tests that you have taken. Click +Add Score to add each individual test score to your list. Click Save & Next.
Use the Select subject and Select a score drop down menus to enter any IB tests that you have taken. Click +Add Score to add each individual test score to your list. Click Save & Next.
After entering IB scores, a summary page will appear. Use the Edit buttons to change responses for each corresponding section.
NOTE: The summary page will contain your SOAR date if you have registered for SOAR. If not, the top of the summary will inform you that you still need to register.
