New Student Conference

Due to the on-going concerns regarding COVID-19, Texas A&M University Galveston has decided to cancel in-person New Student Conferences (NSC) for summer 2020 and move them to a fully virtual experience. Students will maintain the NSC date for which they are registered and you will receive access to the virtual content before the week of your NSC. 

We know you have many questions about this new format and we will work to answer them as we move forward. You will receive direct updates through your personal and Texas A&M Gmail accounts and we will post up-to-date information on our website. Your patience is appreciated as we work through multiple layers of implementing a virtual experience for all of our incoming students and their family members/guests. We look forward to creating a positive and supportive experience for you in your transition to Texas A&M University Galveston.

At this time, email ( is the best method of communication with our office.
