Undergraduate Admissions

Applying for Admission

Admission to Texas A&M University - Texarkana is open to qualified individuals, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or educationally unrelated handicaps.  Students may apply for admission to Texas A&M University - Texarkana by using the go.tamut.edu online application.

To better serve the student we ask you to please answer all questions on the application accurately.  If the university grants a student admission on the basis of incorrect information or omitted facts, which, if known, would invalidate the applicant’s eligibility, that student’s admission is invalid. The completed application, additional forms, official transcripts from all previous colleges and universities, and official transcripts showing high-school graduation, and supporting documents constitute the basis upon which authorities determine eligibility for admission. 

In accordance with the Texas record-retention requirements, the Admissions Office will keep an application for admission on file for one year.  After that date, the office will destroy the application for admission and file contents.

Safety and Security

The Texas A&M University-Texarkana admission application contains two questions regarding whether the applicant has previously been convicted of a felony or suspended from an institution of higher education for disciplinary reasons.  Prospective students who answer "yes" to either question will be required to submit additional documentation and their admissions will remain pending until this information is reviewed.

Transcripts and Test Scores

The applicant must request official transcripts from all colleges and universities that he or she has ever attended.  These transcripts include correspondence courses and credit obtained through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (Dantes), and Advanced Placement (AP) Exam.  

If a student is or has been a member of any branch of the military, he or she has an Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS), Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART), or Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcript.  

A student cannot disregard any part of the college record except under provisions of the Academic Fresh Start Policy

Failure to submit all transcripts could result in administrative withdrawal from the university.  Students cannot use records from one institution posted on a transcript from a second institution for admission purposes.

Students can hand deliver transcripts and test scores (CLEP, Dantes, and AP) in a sealed envelope, or the issuing college or university can mail the documents directly.  Please use the physical address as the mailing address when requesting transcripts and test scores:

All undergraduate students must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 on all transferable coursework.

Students must submit any work attempted at another college subsequent to admission to the university whether or not students earned credit. Transcripts become the property of the university, and the university cannot return the transcripts to the student. The university will keep the transcripts on file for one year only if the student does not enroll.
