Undergraduate Application Process

Due to the continued increase of competitive applications, the Texas A&M College of Engineering moved to a total holistic review process. This policy applies to all applications to engineering, including Texas A&M automatic admits. 

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
  • Personal achievements — involvement in extracurricular activities, community service, leadership, employment and summer activities as well as any talents, awards and honors
  • Information shared in all essays, including the optional "Additional Personal Information" shoebox question

Engineering applicants will be considered for the following programs:

Deadlines to remember

Early Action

  • All materials were due by Oct. 15, 2018. Decisions will be made by mid-December.

General Deadline

  • All materials must be received by Dec. 1, 2018, which is consistent with the university deadline. Decisions will be made by mid-January.

Admission to Texas A&M University will continue to be achieved in one of three ways — top 10 percent admits, academic admits and review admits — and admission decisions will continue to be communicated on a rolling basis.

Admission Checklist

Getting into college isn't easy. There are applications, essays, forms, tests, transcripts - and you're winding up high school, too. But we can help make it easier with this checklist for getting into our college.

1. Do your homework

Ugh, more homework - but it's worth it. Check out the Office of Admissions and Records' Web site. It has a whole lot of important info like deadlines and scholarships. And come see for yourself what the big whoop is about - plan a visit to our campus!

2. Apply

Fill out the Texas Common Application on the Web. And not to worry: There are instructions. To get to them, click "Things to Know" on the right of the Texas Common Application Web page.

3. Wait

The waiting is the hardest part. That's why the Office of Admissions and Records lets you check your application and records online. But keep in mind that it takes at least three weeks to decide on your application.

4. R.S.V.P.

After you get your acceptance packet in the mail (Congrats!), be sure to tell us you're coming by accepting your admission offer online or returning the admission acceptance card you've got in your packet. We'll save a place for you.

5. Sign up for a new student conference

New Student Conferences are a must: You can't register for classes if you don't go to one. And bring your parents. We'd love to meet them.

6. Work out the details

AP, CLEP, financial aid, health insurance, housing, immunizations, part-time jobs, scholarships - check out Now That You're Admitted to find out important info about these and more.
