The GRE requirement has been waived for spring 2022, fall 2022 and spring 2023. Information on how to meet English language requirements can be found here .

Applicants must submit all requirements by the listed deadline. Once a complete application is received, the departmental graduate admission and recruiting committee decide whether admissions is granted. Since admission is highly competitive, it serves the applicant well to begin and complete the application early.

The application deadline for the graduate program are:

  • Fall
    • Dec. 1 for international applicants
    • Dec. 15 for domestic applicants
  • Spring
    • Oct. 1 for all applicants
    • Dec. 15 for Quick admit applications

These deadlines are strictly enforced. This is due to several reasons, among them that all of our doctoral students are fully supported and we need to plan our financial aid as well as to allow time for the international students to obtain visas. Also, keep in mind that the overwhelming majority of the students enter the program in the fall.

Current Texas A&M undergraduate students who are interested in applying to the masters program, should review information about the Quick Admit program at

Current Masters students at Texas A&M and Texas A&M Qatar, who have graduated within the past 12 months, should contact the Graduate Office at for more information on the application process.
