ONLINE ORIENTATION AND ACADEMIC ADVISING

Online orientation consists of on-demand courses 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 for you to 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.
