Family & Guest Registration
Texas A&M University believes the college experience represents a collaboration involving the student, the family of the student and the university. Accompanying your student to the New Student Conference will provide you with valuable information that will help you support your student’s transition into the Texas A&M University community. One family member/guest registration is included in the freshman registration fee only. Additional guests can be registered in the Applicant Information System (AIS).
The family member conference registration includes materials for the conference, meals, facilities costs and staffing during the conference.
Students can register family members for a New Student Conference through the Applicant Information System (AIS) at applicant.tamu.edu.
