Build Community. Feel Prepared. Learn.
The SOAR program offers incoming first-year students at Stanford an opportunity to take free summer online courses in foundational mathematics and writing. With small class experiences, personalized curriculum, and a friendly learning community, we cultivate positive, preparatory learning experiences for future mathematics and writing courses at Stanford.
SOAR Math and SOAR Writing are both five weeks long and each course will allow students to earn 1 credit toward their autumn quarter course load. There is no cost to participating in these courses.
The 2023 SOAR program will run from Monday, July 31 to Friday, September 1.
SOAR Math builds on and enrich students' fundamental prerequisite skills in foundational mathematics to prepare students for success in Calculus and further mathematics courses at Stanford University.
SOAR Writing helps incoming first-year Stanford students develop greater confidence in their academic writing practice and prepare them for taking PWR 1, ESF, or ITALIC 95W during their first year.
SOAR applications are open to incoming Stanford students who have accepted their offer of admission. A SUNET ID is required to apply. The 2023 Application cycle is currently open and will close on June 12, 2023, at 5:00PM PDT.
