Undergraduate Application Process

Due to the continued increase of competitive applications, the Texas A&M University College of Engineering has moved to a total holistic review process. This policy applies to all engineering applications, including Texas A&M automatic admits, and is handled entirely by the Office of Admissions — not the College of Engineering.

Factors that are considered during the review process include the following:

  • Academic achievements — class rank and SAT and/or ACT scores, as well as completion of Texas A&M's required coursework. NOTE: Submission of SAT/ACT scores is optional for fall and spring application cycles in 2021 and 2022.
  • Personal achievements — involvement in extracurricular activities, community service, leadership, employment and summer activities, as well as any talents, awards and honors.
  • Information shared in Essay A and the Engineering Essay.

Engineering applicants will be considered for the following programs:

Admission to Texas A&M University will continue to be achieved in one of two ways — top 10% admits or holistic review admits — and admission decisions will continue to be communicated on a rolling basis.
