At Texas State, we are excited to welcome over 9,000 new Bobcats each year at New Student Orientation (NSO)!
In order to best serve our incoming transfer students, all New Student Orientation (NSO) programs are ONLINE.
Additional information about this delivery format will be provided to students as they sign up.
NSO Sign Up
Transfer Orientation is for incoming students who have completed transferable course work at another college or university and have been out of high school for at least one semester (not including summer). We look at the number of transferable credit hours that have been completed at the time of application to Texas State.
Online Orientation and Virtual Advising
Transfer students are eligible to complete orientation online. Online orientation consists of an on-demand series of learning modules and a required quiz, followed by a virtual appointment with an academic advisor.
Transfer students wishing to register for courses at the Round Rock Campus (RRC) are required to complete orientation online and will be advised by an Academic Advisor, once the online orientation has been completed.
