Q: Do I need to register to attend (an in-person Island Day)?

A: Though we do prefer you register in advance, it is not required that you register for Island Day to attend. However, registration prior to attendance does allow our staff the ability to prepare for your arrival and better serve you and your guests during your visit. In-person Island Day registration is not yet open for 2021. 

Q: I will require additional assistance at (an in-person) Island Day. How do I make these arrangements?
A: If you have a disability and require any additional assistance at Island Day, please contact us at islandday@tamucc.edu. All requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to your visit while we try to accommodate most requests, we cannot guarantee we will be able to meet all requests. 

Q: Is transportation available to/from (in-person) Island Day? Does the university provide overnight accommodations?
A: Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is not currently able to provide transportation to and from Island Day, nor are we able to provide overnight accommodations for students and their guests. 

Q: How is Island Day different from Islander Launch, New Student Orientation?
A: Island Day is an optional campus preview event for prospective students. Islander Launch is a required program for students who have been admitted to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and who have a desire to enroll for classes at the institution. A large part of Islander Launch is advising and registration.
