Fall Transfer Orientation, On-Campus

Autumn view of Old Main from Spring Lake.

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

Transfer on-campus orientation is required for students who have completed 1-11 transferable hours after high school graduation

Transfer students who have completed 12 or more hours after graduating high school are able to complete their orientation on-campus or online. While most students choose the online option, we offer the on-campus option for students who prefer an on-campus experience.

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