New Student Orientation and Registration for Classes
All students, including returning/ readmit, second bachelor’s, international, non-degree seeking, and visiting/ transient students, are required to attend a New Student Orientation (NSO) session prior to the start of classes. For the student who has not attended Texas State for one long semester, he or she will be required to both reapply to the university and complete orientation. NSO takes place before each semester as a means of providing just-in-time information regarding student support services, class scheduling, and other university resources. It covers a range of activities but is highlighted by advisement and class registration services.
