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.
One family member or guest registration is included only with the freshman student registration fee. You can register family members and guests through the Applicant Information System (AIS) until 5 business days prior to their NSC.
Regular conference registration charge is $55 per adult guest (18+) and $25 per child guest (6-17 yrs old)¬†until five business days prior to the conference, after which parents and families must register on site at a rate of $60 per adult guests and $30 per child guest. Children 5 years old and under are free and do not require registration.
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.
