How do I get Admitted to Graduate School at A&M?
Admission to graduate school at Texas A&M University is the shared responsibility of the college and department you are seeking to attend and Graduate Admissions Processing in the Office of Admissions.
The Office of Graduate Studies does not handle admissions processing, questions, or issues with regard to application status.More guidance on the application process can be found on the Office of Admissions website where you can review the steps under “Getting In” on the appropriate page, either the Domestic Graduate Application Process or the International Graduate Application Process.
When seeking admission to graduate school at Texas A&M University, you should submit your application and all required items through the ApplyTexas online application website. It will go to the Office of Admissions and/or the office of your departmental major. You should also be sure to contact the specific department or program prior to applying to discuss your intent to apply and confirm the deadlines for that particular department. The final decision to admit an applicant to a program of study leading to a graduate degree is the shared responsibility of an academic department, an intercollegiate faculty (where applicable) and/or a college. Contact the department to which you are applying for specific deadlines, help with the process, information about special requirements, and inquiries about the status of your application.
