The Student Opportunity and Achievement Record (aka SOAR) acts as a Student Experience Record (Work-Integrated Learning courses you have completed) and a Co-Curricular Record (ways you are involved at NorQuest outside of the classroom). We know you have superpowers – use this record to show employers your amazing skills and experiences!

"How do I use my SOAR?"
You'll receive a record of your time spent in the activity to use when you're applying for jobs or opportunities. Employers want to hire new graduates who have experience, using SOAR is a great way to stand out during the hiring process.
You can use SOAR when you are:
Applying for jobs
Planning for further education
Preparing for interviews

"What are the timelines for making a request? How do I add to my SOAR?"
We encourage students to apply to have their activity included on their record as soon as they complete the activity, usually within two weeks.
Note: You must apply to have your SOAR activities recorded for the academic year (July 1 to June 30) by June 25 annually.
