You are required to attend the conference date for which you are registered. Students are not allowed to participate in a conference they are not registered for in advance. You can change your conference date as long as dates are available on the NSC registration website, accessible through AIS, howdy.tamu.edu – Applicant tab. As conferences are filled they are removed from the site and are no longer available due to capacity limits.
Students will not be forced into conferences to accommodate changes in their personal schedule due to work conflicts or travel. Appeals to change into a restricted or full conference are only granted for military orders, medical emergencies or extreme extenuating circumstances which students can substantiate with written documentation.
Appeals are submitted online via AIS by going to the â€˜Contact Usâ€™ tab, clicking â€˜Ask A Questionâ€™, selecting a subject type of â€˜NSC Appealâ€™ and completing the required fields.
Note: The on-campus housing reservation system for conferences is separate from the New Student Conference registration system. If you are changing your conference date, you will need to contact the Department of Residence Life at (979) 845-9381 to change your NSC on-campus housing accommodations
