Welcome to the Bobcat Family! Here’s a checklist of things to do and information you need to begin your Texas State experience.
In order to best serve our incoming students during these uncertain times, we have moved all New Student Orientation (NSO) programs to ONLINE delivery.
Additional information about this new delivery format will be provided to students as they sign up.
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.
