Cat Camp, Texas State's only pride and traditions camp, is an optional experience for incoming fall and spring students who want to dive in to their lives as a Bobcat. At Cat Camp, students will learn about the history and traditions of Texas State while getting to meet fellow incoming students. For more information, please the Cat Camp website. By itself, Cat Camp does not replace New Student Orientation or Bobcat Preview. Take a look at a brief video to obtain a preview of the Cat Camp experience.
Texas state law (Senate Bill 62) requires that all students who will be under age 22 on their first day of class at a public, private or independent institution of higher education in Texas provide proof of immunization for bacterial meningitis. You will be notified by e-mail if you are required to provide this documentation and you will not be allowed to register for classes until this requirement is met. If you will be attending an on-campus orientation session, you should submit your documentation at least one week prior to your session date. Step-by-step instructions on how to upload your documents, information about exemptions and where to get the meningitis vaccination can be found on the Meningitis Vaccination Requirement website.
