Spring Transfer Orientation, On-Campus

Spring flowers by a campus pond.

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 1-15 transferable hours after high school graduation.

As a transfer student who has completed 16-29 hours after graduating high school, you are able to complete your orientation on-campus or online. While most students choose the on-campus option, we offer the online option for students whose schedules do not allow for an on-campus experience.

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


Spring Transfer Orientation, On-Campus Dates 

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

On-Campus Orientation Fee = $90 (Non-refundable)

If you attend an on-campus orientation you should expect a non-refundable charge of $30 at the time of sign-up and $60 on your tuition bill.

You may qualify for an 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.


Spring Transfer Orientation, Online Schedule

As a transfer student with more than 16 college credit hours after high school graduation, your orientation can be completed online. You will still need to complete your academic advising on campus after your online orientation is completed. Academic Advising appointments can only be made once your Orientation Hold has been removed. It can take up to 3 days for your online orientation to be processed and your Orientation Hold to be removed.
