Students and organizations can bring hands-on activities or design challenges to your location or just visit as guest speakers.

To accept your offer of admission, you must register for a New Student Conference (NSC). 

What Happens at Your New Student Conference?

You will register for your first classes, tour the campus, meet Texas A&M University Galveston campus faculty and staff, learn about financial aid and scholarships, and much more. All new Texas A&M Galveston campus students must attend a New Student Conference before their first semester.

NSC Registration and Date Selection

NSC registration is available for students immediately through the Applicant Information System (AIS) on the Applicant Tab at howdy.tamu.edu. Once you are logged in to AIS, go to the My App Status Tab, click on My Next Steps and follow the steps to register. 

NSC Family and Guest Registration

We welcome family members to support their new Aggies as they begin this next part of their lives. All family members or other guests who plan to attend a traditional student conference must register and pay a $45 fee to attend the conference. This fee will cover administrative costs and your meals while at the conference.

NSC Reschedules

Students are allowed to change their NSC date at any time. There is a reschedule button available in AIS on the My App Status Tab. Only conferences with available seats will be displayed. For many reasons, including safety, we ask that you do not request to be forced into conference dates that are already full. Only medical or military appeals will be granted.

NSC Confirmation

After you complete registration for your conference, an NSC Confirmation Page will appear on the screen, and an electronic notification will be sent to an email address you have provided during the registration process. If this does not happen, your conference registration did not go through and you will need to try again. There are times that the system will not complete registration because the payment was not successful or the registration process timed out. 

Make sure you see an NSC Confirmation Page in AIS and you receive electronic confirmation before you assume your registration was successful.
