Publications for New Students
Now That You're Admitted
Admitted undergraduates receive a brochure entitled Now that You're Admitted from Undergraduate Admissions. This document provides information about the essential steps you must complete as part of the enrollment process. This document also outlines instructions for accepting admission and registering for a New Student Conference. Read through these materials carefully and use the online New Student Conference Registration system to accept or decline admission to the university. We recommend you keep this booklet for reference, as it contains information that will help you prepare for your first semester at Texas A&M University.
New Student Conference Handbook
Admitted undergraduates are mailed the New Student Conference Handbook in April after registering for a New Student Conference. The New Student Conference Handbook provides details about the conferences, tips for making a smooth transition into university life, and resources for campus services that an incoming Aggie might need. Read through it carefully, share it with your family, and bring your copy with you to your NSC.

New Aggie Workbook
The New Aggie Workbook is provided to incoming students at their New Student Conference to help them actively engage with the presentations and discussions.
