In support of Texas A&M University's mission, the goal of the Office of New Student & Family Programs (NSFP) is to facilitate the success of new students through their first year at A&M, thereby, retaining them for their second year and through graduation. We achieve this goal by providing new students with the framework to adjust to the expectations, standards, academic rigors, and social community at Texas A&M University. Additionally, we recognize the important role that family members play in a student's college success and strive to equip families with the resources to aid their student throughout their student's college career.
