Congratulations on your acceptance to Texas State University and welcome to the Bobcat Family! Texas State’s history goes back to 1899. You’re about to become part of a proud tradition and a long line of successful students. You’ll find the experiences, resources and support here that will help you make your mark. Get started today on these next steps that will help you transition to being a Bobcat.
Meet your academic advisor, register for classes and have some fun. You'll meet other new Bobcats and your Orientation Leaders (OLs)- current students who will connect you to all the right people and places on campus. There's a New Student Orientation session for every new Bobcat, so sign up now!
Scholarships, grants, and loans help lots of Bobcats make higher education a reality. Get started as early as you can on financial aid and scholarship applications so you don't miss any opportunities.
Living on campus will put you in the center of it all. Most freshmen are required to live on campus. Explore your campus housing options, or receive an exemption from on-campus living if you qualify and investigate off-campus housing resources. Spaces fill up quickly -- let us know your choices soon.
Whether you're finishing high school or are attending classes at another university or community college, we'll need an official transcript showing your final grades.
You'll need to have an SAT, ACT, TAKS, or STAAR score high enough to exempt you from further testing and developmental education classes. Check your TSIP compliance status now. Questions? Contact the TSIP office at 512.245.3942 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
