Student Forms and Information

You must obtain all required signatures on any form that you submit to OGAPS. If one of the required signers is unavailable, each program has faculty members who are authorized signers for the faculty in that program. Please check with that program’s graduate office to determine who may sign. Additionally, OGAPS will accept scanned copies of signatures for most documents. At a minimum, if the form has a place for the Department Head of Interdisciplinary Program Chair to sign, that signature must be original. If this form does not require this signature, then the committee chair’s signature must be original.



Texas A&M University (TAMU) has merged the records for HSC students into the TAMU student information system.  Beginning with the 2014-2015 academic year, all processing for HSC students will occur in the TAMU student system.
