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.

NSO for Summer 2017 has closed. Sign-up for Summer 2018 will begin in February.
Gold Freshman NSO Fee = $90 (Non-refundable)
