Dual Credit Student Records

Sauk Identification Number

Sauk Valley Community College provides a Sauk identification number to each student for college identification and administrative purposes. A Sauk identification number is issued after the student information form is processed by the Office of Admissions and Records. Students will be notified by mail of their Sauk identification number. This number will be used for all transactions at Sauk Valley Community College.

SOAR (Sauk Online Access to Records)

SOAR is Sauk Valley Community College’s online record system that students may access with a Sauk ID number and PIN. Students are able to access records anywhere and at anytime as long as they have Internet access. Students can view personal information, grades, class schedule, billing information, and an unofficial transcript. 

Registration Change/Withdrawal

During the first two weeks of the fall and spring semesters, students may make changes in their course schedule of classes by filing a program change with the Dual Credit Coordinator at ext 420. This applies to classes taken for college credit only.  Students wishing to withdraw from classes being taken for dual credit must contact their high school counselor prior to filing a program change with the Dual Credit Coordinator (815-835-6240).

Any request for a refund of tuition must be made by the following schedule:

  • Fall and Spring Semesters:
    • 100% refund period – through the first week of the term.
    • 80% refund period – the second week of the term.
  • Summer Semester:
    • 100% refund period – first day of class and the following business day
    • 80% refund period – third and fourth business day

A student’s failure to withdraw properly may result in a failing grade of “F” in the course.
