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 are moving all New Student Orientation (NSO) programs to ONLINE delivery
Additional information about this new delivery format will be available soon. If you have already registered for an on-campus orientation program, you will be receiving additional information on the transition to online delivery in the near future.
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.
