Student Online Advising & Registration

Student Online Advising & Registration (SOAR) is designed to quickly and easily prepare you for your educational career at College of Western Idaho.  SOAR will provide you with tools and information important to your success. Topics covered in SOAR include:

  • Student Tools
  • Student Resources
  • Paying for College
  • Advising
  • Academic Planning
  • Registration

Once you are accepted to CWI, you will need to complete SOAR prior to registration.  

Congratulations for being admitted to CWI, and being referred to this site to complete your Student Online Advising & Registration Information (SOAR)! You must complete this step (the SOAR and SOAR Quiz) before registering for courses.

CWI was recently approved for accreditation! As a result, we are currently updating our SOAR information. The new SOAR information will be available on this site after April 1st, 2017.

Summer and Fall Registration opens April 10th, 2017. Remember, registration is a two-step process: Plan, then Register! Visit student planning website for more information.

2. Log into Blackboard and complete SOAR quiz.

3. Attend an in-person Registration Session if:

  • You wish to meet with an Advisor for help planning your first semester
  • You require ANY additional assistance with registration for courses
  • You have additional questions you would like to discuss about advising and/or registration

You will receive instructions on how to sign up for an in person Registration Session at the end of SOAR. The Registration Session is ideal for students who both want and need in person advising assistance for planning and choosing classes, and navigating our CWI systems (Blackboard, myCWI, and CWI email).

Registration Sessions are offered at multiple locations. Once you RSVP for a Registration Session, please refer to your confirmation email for directions on canceling or rescheduling.
