Texas State University offers general admission programs for first-time freshman, transfer and international students, and returning students as well. Admission standards are designed to ensure that admitted students are prepared to meet the academic challenges at Texas State.

Students and their guests are invited to visit campus any day the university is open.  Guided tours are conducted through the Alumni and Future Student Welcome Center. Tour reservations can be made by means of our online reservation system or a phone call a few days in advance. Campus tours are available most weekdays throughout the year. Although university offices are closed on weekends, the Welcome Center is open on a limited basis on Saturdays during the fall and spring semesters for Bobcat Days. The Welcome Center is located in the LBJ Student Center 3rd floor. Convenient parking is available at the adjacent Student Center Parking Garage.

Bobcat Days are Texas State University’s premier visitation event for prospective students and their families.  They take place twice in the fall and the spring on Saturdays.  Guests can visit campus to learn more about academic programs, support services, admissions procedures, housing options as well as financial aid and scholarships opportunities.  Visit the admission web site for Bobcat Days dates, a schedule of activities and registration options.

Other visitation opportunities exist. For more information, tour times or to schedule a tour, contact the Welcome Center at 512.245.8871 or email the Welcome Center welcomecenter@txstate.edu.
