Spring Gold NSO

Group of students sitting by campus ponds.

At Texas State, we are excited to welcome over 9,000 new Bobcats each year at New Student Orientation (NSO). 

These orientation sessions are for students who are current high school students who plan on attending Texas State the semester after high school graduation. They are also students who have already graduated from high school but have not taken any classes at a college or university.

We encourage you to register for an NSO session as early as possible since seats fill up quickly.


Spring Gold Orientation Dates

NSO for Spring 2017 has closed. Sign-up for Spring 2018 will begin in October.


Gold NSO Fee = $90 (Non-refundable)

Students attending a Spring Gold program can expect a non-refundable charge of $30 at the time of sign-up and $60 added to the student's tuition bill.

You may qualify for a NSO fee waiver if you have an approved admissions fee waiver on file with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. For more information on fee waivers, please visit our fee waiver web page.
