See frequently asked questions and answers regarding the Texas A&M University College of Engineering's Quick Admit Graduate Program.

Application Process

Q: I am a Texas A&M University undergraduate student, and I have already submitted an application through EngineeringCAS for a graduate engineering program at Texas A&M. Should I submit a Quick Admit application as well?

A: No, do not submit a Quick Admit application as well. However, you will need to email the graduate department advisor of the graduate degree you applied to, and let them know. They will make a record of this, and review your application to expedite the admission process.

Q: Can I submit a Quick Application in EngineeringCAS for more than one graduate engineering program?

A: No, you can only submit one Quick Admit application in EngineeringCAS per term. Upon receiving an admission decision, you may notify the graduate department advisor if you would like to be considered for a different department or program. The graduate department advisor can manually move your application in EngineeringCAS to the department/program of your choice, without you needing to reapply.

Q: I am a student from another campus within the Texas A&M University System. Do I qualify for the Quick Admit program?

A: No. The Quick Admit program is only open to College of Engineering and College of Science students of Texas A&M University - College Station and its branch campuses in Galveston, McAllen and Qatar.

Applicable Majors

Q: Can I apply for a graduate engineering degree that is in a different department/major than my undergraduate engineering major?

A: Yes, students can also apply to master’s programs in engineering majors other than their undergraduate major. However, they will undergo an expedited review. Students who wish to pursue a master’s degree in the same department from which they are graduating will be automatically admitted if they have a 3.25 GPA or higher. The specific master’s degree program for automatic admission varies by department, so you should ask the department graduate program office/advisors. Students who have a 3.0 GPA or higher will undergo an expedited review based on their undergraduate transcript in Howdy.

Q: I am a Texas A&M University undergraduate student in a major other than engineering. Can I still submit a Quick Admit application for an engineering graduate program?

A: Yes, you may. Although the Quick Admit program is set up primarily for our Texas A&M University undergraduate engineering majors, we will consider Texas A&M applicants from other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. A custom question in the four quadrant application will ask you to enter your Texas A&M undergraduate major if it is something other than engineering.

Deferring a Quick Admit Decision 

Q: Can I defer my Quick Admit admission decision to the next term?

A: Yes, you can. You will need to contact your graduate department advisor and request to defer your admission BEFORE the census date. If a student does not matriculate for the term of admission, they roll to inactive after the census date and will need to reapply.
