Non-Traditional Student Organization

Welcome to the Non-Traditional Student Organization

The Non-Traditional Student Organization (NTSO) has been a chartered student organization at Texas State University since 1987 and is open to all non-traditional students.  NTSO fosters a community that supports students with life experience and helps make your experience at Texas State a successful one.

  • A delay in postsecondary education immediately after high school graduation
  • Returning student/transfer student
  • Currently or formerly married/domestic partnership
  • Parent or guardian
  • Have children or other dependents
  • Military veteran
  • Work full time
