What is New Student Orientation (NSO)?
It's time to discover new places, new friends, new interests, and the Buff in you. This summer, you will have the opportunity to start the next chapter in your life by attending New Student Orientation at West Texas A&M University.
Who Can Attend?
New students to our University that have been admitted must attend New Student Orientation. (Transfer students are encouraged to attend a Transfer Student Orientation.) Attendance at an orientation is required for all incoming freshmen. To verify your admission status, call 1.800.99.WTAMU. (For more guest information, click here.)
Should you need to cancel your reservation, click here. Cancellations must be made seven days prior to orientation. When you register for orientation, you are signed up for both components of orientation (NSO and Buff Branding). A single fee of $55 covers all student costs associated with both components of your orientation experience and will go on your first long semester's bill. Parents and guardians are welcome to join you for the NSO portion of orientation. Each guest at NSO is $15. Other things you need to know about NSO:

To cap off your NSO experience and to officially become a Buff, advising and registration for your first semester will occur in the afternoon of your orientation. Advising and Registration will only take place after you have completed all NSO activities and our technology training. All sessions at NSO are required for registration to occur.
