All documentation must be received before or by the application deadline for the application to be considered complete.

You are a freshman if you:

  • are a student without college credit or
  • earned college credit prior to high school graduation (dual credit/early college high school) and
  • are a U.S. citizen; have applied for permanent residency; or qualify for Texas residency based on Senate Bill 1528

Submit your application through APPLYTEXAS or THE COALITION. Only one application per student. Choice of application has no bearing on the admission decision.

Applicants may be admitted one of three ways:

1. Top 10% Admits

Freshman applicants qualify for automatic top 10% admission (but not necessarily to the major of choice) if they:

  • attend a recognized public or private high school in Texas, and
  • rank in the top 10% of their graduating class on or before the application deadline, and
  • satisfy the State of Texas Uniform Admission Policy, and
  • successfully complete the recommended or distinguished graduation plan*, and
  • ensure all required documents are received by the application deadline.* Students who change from the recommended or distinguished curriculum to the new foundation curriculum must complete the Distinguished Level of Achievement to qualify.
2. Academic Admits

Applicants qualify for automatic academic admission (but not necessarily to the major of choice), if they:

  • rank in the top quarter of their graduating class on or before the application deadline, and meet test score minimums

New SAT:

    • Total score of at least a 1360 with at least:
      • 620 Math; and
      • 660 Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW)

Old SAT:

    • Composite score of at least 1300 (Math and Critical Reading) with at least:
      • 600 Math; and
      • 600 Critical Reading

ACT:

    • Composite score of at least 30 with at least:
      • 27 Math; and
      • 27 English
3. Review Admits

If an applicant does not qualify for top 10% or academic admission, but satisfies the State of Texas Uniform Admission Policy, the complete application will be reviewed.

Factors considered:

  • Academic achievements – class rank and SAT and/or ACT scores as well as completion of Texas A&M’s required coursework
  • Personal achievements – involvement in extracurricular activities, community service, leadership, employment and summer activities as well as any talents, awards and honors
  • Information shared in essays – Essays A and B are required. The optional essay is recommended for applicants who fall into the holistic review.
  • The complete ApplyTexas application including the optional “Additional Personal Information” shoebox question

 

Applicants who are high achieving in all areas are most competitive for admission. Students admitted through the holistic review process are expected to be successful academically at Texas A&M, as well as bring qualities and insights that will enrich the student body of the university.

You are a transfer if you:

  • are a student who earned college credit after high school graduation (during fall/spring semester) and
  • do not have a bachelor’s degree and
  • do not qualify for readmission and
  • are a U.S. citizen; have applied for permanent residency; or qualify for Texas residency based on Senate Bill 1528

Special consideration may be given to military veterans. Texas A&M University participates in the Texas College Credit for Heroes Program.

Submit your application through APPLYTEXAS or THE COALITION. Only one application per student. Choice of application has no bearing on the admission decision.

Ways to be admitted:

  1. Automatic Transfer Admission through SB175
    To be automatically admitted via SB175, the applicant must have graduated in the top 10% of his or her high school graduating class from a Texas high school not more than 4 years prior to the semester for which the student is applying.

  • Provide all of the documents required for transfer admission to Texas A&M by the posted deadline. Transfer requirements are listed under How to Apply.

 

*Students qualifying for transfer top 10% admission under SB175 will be admitted to Texas A&M but the choice of major is not guaranteed.

  1. Holistic Review
  • Decisions are made by each college/major on a rolling basis.
  • Preference is given to applicants with the highest grade point average (GPA) and most appropriate courses for the specified college/major.
  • Frequent course drops/withdraws may have a negative impact on the admission decision.
  • Applicants denied by their first-choice major may be reviewed by their second-choice major.
  • Summer/fall applicants may be asked to submit spring grades before receiving a decision.

The cost of attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend Texas A&M University. Your COA covers both your college tuition and basic living expenses too. When comparing financial aid packages from other schools, make sure you are comparing the total cost of attending that school, not just the total financial aid awarded. It is important for you to budget and make wise decisions regarding how to utilize the financial aid funds you receive. Students are not allowed to receive aid that exceeds their COA.
