Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Welcome to the Javelina Family!

We are delighted that you are joining the Javelina Nation!  TAMUK is committed to your success as an active member of the international Javelina family.  Therefore, you are strongly encouraged to arrive early--at least ten days or two weeks before classes start.  This will give you time to adjust from travel, become familiar with your new surroundings, and provide adequate time to make arrangements for banking and housing.  Early arrival is also crucial for your timely participation in International Student Orientation. 

International Student Orientation is where the Javelina tradition really starts!  It is a vital step toward successful transition into your new “home away from home”!  Orientation provides important information regarding your stay as a student, campus resources, and services in the community.  A few of the topics discussed will be academic expectations, immigration regulations, programs, safety, and support services at TAMUK.  All new international students must complete the orientation process before beginning their first session or semester;

Undergraduate International Students will need to attend Hoggie Days orientation.  To register, please email:  orientation@tamuk.edu for further instructions.
