Check-In will take place as part of the Department of Housing and Residential Life Check-In on August 17th and 18th. More details about that process can be found by following this link to their website: Moving In and Getting Settled.

We will also be hosting an additional Check-In for students who will be living off campus or missed their Residence Hall check-in. This will take place on Monday August 19th in the LBJ Student Center Ballroom from 3:30 - 5:00pm.

Immediately following Monday's late Check-In will be the President's Block Party taking place at the President's House on campus.

Please make sure to bring your student ID with you to expedite the check-in process.  

Program Details

Bobcat Preview is mandatory for all incoming students who are part of the PACE Program or have less than 30 of transferable college credit hours on file here at Texas State.  Throughout the week students will be presented with information that will help them succeed in and out of the classroom.  The presentations will cover a wide range of topics from campus safety to what computer resources are available for students. We encourage you to utilize the Texas State Events [Guidebook] application to view a detailed list of workshops, events, and meeting places.  Students will be responsible for purchasing their own lunches, whether via a meal plan or cash or credit.


Incoming students received an e-mail with instructions and details about the Everfi program.  Students need to complete the two modules before arriving to campus for NSO and Bobcat Preview.  Students need to login with their Texas State e-mail address and password and complete the courses.
