 Step 5: Apply for Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration(SOAR).

All new students are required to attend an Orientation session before they register for their first semester courses at Miles Community College. By completing a SOAR session, students and their families can be assured that all required college business is taken care of prior to arriving on campus for classes, making the transition to college life much less stressful!

Not required for non-degree seeking students and high school/Pioneer Express Program students.


 Step 6: Complete HAVEN and Alcohol.Edu.

We make it a goal to take care of our own here at MCC and we want to do everything in our power to ensure our campus remains a safe place for our students to live, work, and grow. To help us meet that goal all incoming students are required to take an online training before coming to campus. This training is called AlcoholEDU.

AlcoholEDU provides detailed information about alcohol and the effects it has on the mind and body. We know that many students choose not to drink while in college so while you might not think a student needs to know this information, this training helps our students develop skills to handle situations involving their peers and their use of alcohol.


 Step 7: Attend Welcome Wagon

MCC Dean of Student Engagement and Auxiliary Services Richard DeShields works hard to ensure that students have a great time during the week, "Welcome Wagon is meant to help with the transition of students to MCC and Miles City. By providing these social events, it allows our students to connect with one another and to become familiar with the College and the Community. Research indicates that students are more successful if they connect early and get involved within the college and Welcome Wagon helps initiate this involvement."


 Step 8: Begin Classes!
