How to be Admitted

Automatic Transfer Admission Transfer applicants may qualify for automatic admissions through SB175. SB175 refers to applicants in the top 10% of graduating high school class in Texas. Applicants must also satisfy other requirements which can be found in the link listed below.
Program for Transfer Admission (PTA) The Program for Transfer Admission (PTA) offers prospective transfer students a unique opportunity to be automatically admitted to Texas A&M University. PTA is designed for students attending Texas community colleges and offers more than 65 degree plans. Upon successful completion of the coursework outlined by the degree plan and additional requirements of the program, participants are eligible for automatic admission to Texas A&M.
Consideration of Spring Grades (International Transfer Students) – In the case an international transfer student is currently studying inside the U.S. and is denied for the fall term, spring grades may then be used in the admissions decision if received by June 1 and if space is still available in the intended major.
Colleges, Majors and Transfer Course Sheets
Each major has its own transfer applicant admission requirements, so make sure to review each major of interest’s perquisites. Coursework for desired majors in the College of Liberal Arts are listed in the current TAMU Catalog for the Colleges in Liberal Arts.
Transfer Course Equivalency
Making sure that your planned or previous coursework from other universities’ transfers over to Texas A&M will provide a smoother transition. Check on the Texas A&M’s Transfer Course Equivalency website.
Cost of Attendance
Incoming undergraduate students at Texas A&M University are offered a choice for paying tuition. This allows both the students and their parents to plan and budget for college expenses. Transfer students have three options.
- The current Four-Year Locked Rate: which is a compounded four-year average based on the current Higher Ed Price Index or
- The Locked-Rate that corresponds with the calculated remaining years since their first term of enrollment after high school or
- The Variable Rate: which will adjust each year based on that year’s Higher Ed Price Index.
