Welcome to the Bobcat Family! Here’s a checklist of things to do and information you need to begin your Texas State experience.
We’ll help you navigate everything Texas State has to offer as you begin your Bobcat journey, including everything you need to get your academic career off to a great start. We can’t wait to see you on campus!
New Student Orientation (NSO)
Meet your academic advisors and other new Bobcats, register for classes and have some fun. Your orientation leaders will connect you to all the right people and places on campus.
Living on campus — required for most freshmen — puts you at the heart of everything. Explore your residence hall options or resources for living off-campus (if you’re eligible to do so). Housing spaces fill up quickly, so get your choices in soon.
Meningitis is a serious infection that attacks the brain and spinal cord, and young adults age 14-24 have a higher risk of infection. Getting vaccinated protects you and other students. Texas law does not allow students to register for classes until they provide proof of vaccination.
