Registration for Islander Launch 2018 is now available!  

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi offers an orientation program called Islander Launch to prepare you for your first semester. At Islander Launch, you will learn about student resources, get oriented with the campus, meet fellow students as well as faculty and staff, and most importantly, you will register for your classes. 

If you are a new student starting classes at TAMUCC in the summer semester, please contact the Academic Advisor for your major to schedule your courses. You will still attend one of the Islander Launch events before registering for the Fall semester. To find your Academic Advisor, please visit: 

The registration fee is $75 for students and guests.

If you would like to change your major on file before registering for Islander Launch, please follow these instructions to complete and submit a Change of Major form to the Office of Recruitment and Admissions. Once your change of major has processed, you will be able to register for one of the corresponding Islander Launch sessions for that major.

  1. be admitted to TAMU-CC
  2. complete the Texas State Initiative (TSI) requirements
  3. submit documentation for the bacterial meningitis vaccine
  4. set up an Island ID
