Though not required, family members/guests who serve in primary support roles are encouraged to attend the New Student Conference with you.¬†We have many programs and services specifically designed for family members. Texas A&M University believes that the college experience represents a collaboration involving the student, the family of the student and the University. We invite family members to participate in the New Student Conference. Those who accompany students will have many opportunities to meet administrators, staff and student Orientation Leaders. We hope that by participating, you will become informed about the University‚Äôs academic programs, policies, facilities and services.
Each adult (18 and up) family member who wishes to attend must register online and pay the $25 conference charge¬†¬†($10 meal-only charge for 17 and under family members). Registration for family members is a separate process from student registration. For more information and to register, please visit http://newaggie.tamu.edu/family-and-guests/.

The charge for registration is increased after May 1st.
