New Student Orientation is a program that is  required  for all new entering undergraduates at MSU Texas. Whether you are a first year student or transferring, getting started at MSU Texas is a big step. The Admissions Staff is here to help you along the way!

The New Student Orientation requirement can be met by either of the following options:


1. Attending a New Student Orientation Session at MSU

This is the option required for new incoming freshmen. We will host several one-day New Student Orientation Sessions throughout the summer. Once registered for a session, you will receive a confirmation email and event reminders.

Registration will open in April 2020.

2. Completing New Student Orientation Online

This option is available to distance education students as well as new transfer students (a transfer student is defined at MSU as a student with 18 transferable college credit hours completed AFTER high school graduation). All content must be watched from start-to-finish. Completion is verified by the MSU Orientation Staff within 24 hours Monday-Friday. Once your completion is verified, your Orientation Hold will be updated to reflect completion of the New Student Orientation requirement. You will also be sent an email to confirm that your New Student Orientation requirement is complete.  

Online Orientation will open in April 2020.
