Richard A. Castro Undergraduate Admissions Center
429 N. Guadalupe Street

Texas State University offers general admission programs for first-time freshman, transfer, and international students, as well as returning students. 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 (both on-campus and virtual) are conducted through the Alumni and Future Student Welcome Center. Tour reservations can be made by means of our online reservation system.  Campus tours are available most weekdays throughout the year. 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.  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 website for Bobcat Day dates, a schedule of activities and registration options.

In addition to campus tours and Bobcat Days, we invite you to explore additional visit options. For more information, contact the Welcome Center at 512.245.8871 or welcomecenter@txstate.edu.
