Transfer NSO

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 the online 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).

Online Orientation and Virtual Advising

Online orientation consists of an on-demand series of learning modules and a required response form. Upon successful completion, you will be directed to schedule a virtual appointment for academic advising, which will conclude with course registration. Virtual advising appointments may only be scheduled after your orientation hold is removed, which can take up to 3 business days after your Online Orientation is submitted.

In order to satisfy your orientation requirement, it is important that you sign up and complete the necessary steps within the required timeline. You should complete NSO and academic advising as soon as possible to ensure course registration, financial aid awards and an overall smooth transition to Texas State.

Transfer students wishing to register for courses at the Round Rock Campus (RRC) are also required to complete online orientation and be advised by an Academic Advisor before registering.
