On behalf of the JagX staff we want to welcome you to Texas A&M University-San Antonio!
JagX is a MANDATORY program for all freshman and freshman transfer students, the week before the fall and spring semester. JagX is designed to welcome you to Texas A&M-San Antonio and prepare you for a smooth transition by addressing your academic, social and personal needs.
You are a First Time Freshman if you have not attended college since earning a high school degree or GED. You are a Freshman Transfer if you have attended college since earning a high school degree or GED and have 29 or less college credit hours. There is no charge to attend JagX.
JagX jump starts a student’s transition to college and prepares our new Jaguars for the life-changing experiences that lie ahead. As a key part of the professional journey, JagX contributes to retention efforts by introducing our new undergraduates to university expectations and culture though an emphasis on the professional, intellectual, and life skills that will enable participants to be successful as university students. This week long experience, held prior to first day of class, will allow our students to meet fellow jaguars, interact with faculty and staff, and feel a connection to our university.
