Texas A&M University believes that the college experience represents a collaboration involving the student, the family of the student and the University. Although attendance at a New Student Conference is required for students only, we invite you to attend your student’s New Student Conference and participate in a variety of programs.
At the conference you will have the opportunity to meet faculty, staff, other family members and student Orientation Leaders. By participating, you will become informed about the University‚Äôs academic programs, policies, facilities and services. While all family members are welcome to attend, the conference activities are not designed for the enjoyment of younger children, so if possible, alternate arrangements are encouraged.
To register as a family member or guest, please ensure that your student has first completed their NSC registration and take note of these important items:
Family and Guest registration does NOT have limited capacity, therefore there is no rush to complete your registration.
Review each field carefully before submitting your registration.
You must have your student’s UIN to register. ¬†This is their 9-digit University ID, formatted as ###00#### (it does NOT contain any letters).
Registration will be available online for families¬†and guests until four days prior to the conference. ¬†On-Site Registration is available; however, we HIGHLY SUGGEST registering online in advance.
Review our list of Family Registration FAQs, including our refund policy,¬†before registering your family members.
When registering, you may encounter issues while using Safari or Internet Explorer, or is using an Apple product (e.g. iPhone, iPad, MacBook, etc.). We recommend using a different browser or non-Apple product to register. If you still encounter an issue while registering please call our office and we will complete your registration over the phone.
