As a new Bobcat, you are required by Texas law to provide proof of immunization against bacterial meningitis or an affidavit of exemption. To assist you in complying with the law, Texas State has contracted with Magnus Health Technology, Inc. to collect and verify your medical documents. Learn more about meningitis immunization.
International students are required to attend a two-part orientation the week before classes start. The first part will be New Student Orientation, hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and will be an opportunity to meet your academic advisor and register for classes. The second part is hosted by the International Office and will allow you to learn about support services and campus resources. Please note that you must register for both sessions. If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Texas Success Initiative Program (TSIP) is a state-mandated assessment test. All new freshman must satisfy the TSIP requirements or be exempt from the requirements before attending New Student Orientation. If you have questions about this requirement, please visit the TSIP website.
After your high school graduation or at the end of your last academic semester at another college, it is important that your final transcript be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. If the transcript you sent does not show your final grades (and reflect your high school graduation, if it is a high school transcript), you need to send an additional transcript that does.
If you submitted official transcripts of course work completed at other colleges of universities, you may view the evaluated transcripts on our Transfer Course Equivalency System. If you have any questions about how your credits were evaluated, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Whether you bring a vehicle to campus is your decision. If you do, know that parking is limited and your need to purchase a permit as soon as possible. Learn more about bringing a car to campus and parking availability from Parking Services. We also encourage you to explore the convenience of the Bobcat Shuttle system.
As an incoming international student, you will have many other questions. Utilize our additional resources to learn about everything from scholarships to the Student Recreation Center.
