Each year New Student Conferences are held for undergraduate students entering Texas A&M University. As a new undergraduate student, you are required to register and attend a New Student Conference in order to register for classes. Your family is encouraged to attend the conference with you to participate in programs designed for family members and learn more about what you will be experiencing as a new Aggie. Attendance at your New Student Conference is mandatory.

In addition to attending your New Student Conference, you have the option of attending the Extended Orientation Program, Howdy Camp. This program is designed to acquaint you with the history and tradition of Texas A&M, student life and campus services. To learn more about orientation at Texas A&M, click here.

Graduate students are not required to attend the New Student Conference and have additional orientation requirements and additional extended orientation opportunities to select from. Please click here for additional information.
