The application procedure is broken into two steps:

  • Applying to the university: Admission to the University is coordinated through the Texas A&M Office of Admissions. Applications are submitted through the ApplyTexas common application system. Once you have submitted your application via the ApplyTexas system, the Office of Admissions will load it into their system and email you. This process may take several weeks, particularly in late December and early January. The Office of Admissions will then transmit the application to our department.
  • Online submission of documents to the department: Once we receive your application, we will send you an email message explaining how to upload your reference letters and statement of purpose into our CSE On-Line Application System. At this time, you will also have the opportunity to update your personal information and submit unofficial transcripts and GRE scores. NOTE: The department does not accept paper documents. All materials must be submitted electronically.


Please consult our FAQ (frequently asked questions) about graduate admissions to the department as well as our Graduate Brochure. Specific questions not answered in these documents should be directed to General questions about admissions (e.g., regarding the ApplyTexas system) should be directed to the Texas A&M Office of Admissions.
