Howdy

The Howdy Portal is a web portal connecting students to university records and resources. On Howdy, students pay tuition and fee bills, register for courses, and view unofficial transcripts plus much more.

To check out Howdy, visit http://howdy.tamu.edu.

Please note that students need to activate their NetID and password in order to access Howdy.

Your NetID is used to access your University supplied email and Blackboard Vista as well as myrecord.tamu.edu and many other University Systems.
         

Take the time to choose a suitable NetID as it will be used as your University email address.
