Graduate Admissions

Central Academic Building | (210)784-1414 |

Texas A&M University-San Antonio adheres to high standards of academic excellence and admits students in accordance with their level of academic preparation without regard to race, color, sex, age, religious commitment or national origin.

Applicants should answer questions on the admission application accurately. If the university grants a student admission on the basis of incorrect information or omitted facts, which, if known, would invalidate the applicant’s eligibility, that student’s admission is invalid. The completed application and supporting documents (i.e. official transcripts from ALL previous colleges and universities attended and test scores) constitute the basis upon which the Office of Graduate Studies determines eligibility for admission.

Applications will be processed after all required documentation has been received. An application is considered to be complete only when the Office of Graduate Studies has received all required documentation, including completed application through GradCAS (, required test scores, application fee, and official transcripts from all previous academic work. Completed applications are processed in the order in which they are made complete. Applicants are typically informed of their admission decision within two to three weeks from the point of completion. Incomplete applications will not be processed and will be withdrawn by the university after the census date for the term. Admission decision processing turnaround times may vary as deadlines approach.

Information concerning all aspects of the admissions process will be mailed directly from:

Office of Graduate Studies , (210)784-1414
Central Academic Building, Suite 425

Prospective students are strongly encouraged to apply early.

A student must be admitted to a graduate program in order to register for graduate level courses. This applies to students with an undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University-San Antonio, as well as from other regionally-accredited institutions. In accordance with program requirements, applicants must receive a satisfactory score on the appropriate nationally standardized graduate aptitude examination(s). These scores are valid for a period of five years from the exam date.

Standards for admittance to a specific program are set by each academic college. Applicants must check the admission requirements to the program of interest before they seek admission. Initial evaluation of an applicant’s documents is processed through the Office of Graduate Admissions and is routed to the respective graduate department for an admission decision.

Applicants, who wish to change their graduate program, after admittance to a specific program, must reapply for admission, pay the $35 application fee, and meet the program’s specific admissions requirements to be admitted to the new program. Failure to follow policy and procedure may void the application of any courses completed toward a degree in a specific program.
