Spring Transfer Orientation, On-Campus
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 is closed. Sign-up for Spring 2019 will begin October 2018.
On-Campus Orientation Fee = $90 (Non-refundable)
If you attend an on-campus orientation you should expect a non-refundable charge of $30 payable 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 business days for your online orientation to be processed and your Orientation Hold to be removed.
Online Orientation Fee = $60 (Non-refundable)
If you participate in online orientation you should expect a charge of $60 on your tuition bill.
