Registering parents & family members

  • "Guests" can be added or removed after the student completes their RRO Registration if you aren't sure who will attend with you.

For the Two-Day Sessions:

  • Students are automatically reserved a one-night stay in the Hulen/Clement Residence Hall for the night of their RRO session.  Students are required to stay on-campus for this one night.
  • Students arriving early can reserve an extra night's stay if they  wish.
  • Any accommodations for Parents and family members can be made separately.

Students may have Course Registration Hold(s) on their account.

  • Students may have course Registration Hold(s) on their account. A hold represents a requirement that has NOT been completed by the student. 
  • While these holds will not prevent you from registering for Red Raider Orientation, a hold must be removed in order to register for classes.
  • You can view your holds when you log into the RRO registration system. You are encouraged to take care of any holds prior to your Red Raider Orientation session through the Admitted Student Tasklist.
  • A hold you may encounter is a Texas Success Initiative (TSI) hold. If a student has a "TSI Testing" hold (pay special attending to the wording of your hold) on their account, the student must come a day before their RRO session and take the test(s) with Academic Testing Services. You should make travel plans accordingly.
