Family & Guests:    

We welcome family members to come support their new Sea Aggies as they begin this next part of their lives. All family members or other guests who plan to attend a conference must register.  The fee for one guest is included with the student's registration.  Additional guest registrations can be purchased.  

Conference fees will cover administrative costs and your meals while at the conference.

We recognize that while your student will be going through many changes in the coming months, sending a child to college can mean great transition for the family as well.  While some parts of the conference schedule will have students and parents together, there will be times where we'll ask you to separate for sessions specifically geared toward the student's development as a young adult and valuable parent sessions that will aid in your transition to becoming the parent of a college student.

If you are a Galveston Major Student and you need to register your guests please go to the AIS website where you originally accepted your admittance to TAMUG. That website can be found here.

College of Engineering Guest Registration:    

Any student admitted to the College of Engineering program in Galveston should register their NSC guests using the links below. Your NSC fee includes one free guest registration. Please use the "Included Guest Registration" link to input their information. Any other guests will incur an extra charge and should be registered using the "Additional Guest Registration" link.

Inputting all guest information before arriving at NSC will save you time during check in!
