Registration Instructions

New student orientation is designed for first-time-in-college and transfer students with fewer than 12 hours after high school graduation. Students already admitted to Texas A&M University-Kingsville can register to attend new student orientation by:

  1. Logging in to Blue & Gold Connection (use the big blue arrow that says LOGIN HERE at the top left-hand side of the page) using your student ID (K number) and password (birth date in six digit format MMDDYY). If you are having trouble logging in, make sure you are using a capital "K" when you type in your student ID.
  2. Click the Orientation Registration (Kingsville Campus Only) link located on the Main Menu page.
  3. Select a new student orientation session by clicking on (Register?) next to the date you plan to attend.
  4. A message box will appear confirming your reservation to attend your new student orientation session. 

Registration confirmation and reminders regarding your orientation session and other important information will be sent to you via the email address you have listed in Blue & Gold Connection and your TAMUK student email. To ensure you receive all notices and reminders, please check your TAMUK student email account on a regular basis.

Please note that some sessions may not be available because the session is closed due to capacity or registration deadlines. For assistance with registration, please contact us at 361-593-2315 or orientation@tamuk.edu.
