Please answer all questions on the 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, official transcripts from all previous colleges and universities, and supporting documents constitute the basis upon which authorities determine eligibility for admission.

This document is used to assess the background experiences, activities, and possible skills that an applicant is able to document through work and life history. Care should be taken to tailor your resume to the program of study for which you are applying. Most resumes that graduate applicants submit are between 1-2 pages in length.

Letters of Intent/Interest

This brief paper should allow the reader to better understand your rationale, life story and purpose in seeking this degree. Because effective writing skills are necessary to be successful in graduate school, program faculty typically review these papers from the perspective of your commitment and interest in the degree, as well as your overall skill and aptitude for effective and professional writing. Most letters of intent/interest that graduate applicants submit are between 2-4 pages in length.

Recommendation Letters

Graduate school requires a multitude of different positive and effective professional attributes. Faculty attend to the suggestions, feedback and offerings by other professionals regarding your performance in previous institutions, work settings and other professional venues. Recommendation letters may be completed by former co-workers, instructors, supervisors, or any other professionals who can clearly attest to the work, study and/or professional habits and styles of the applicant.

Official Transcripts

University policy forbids anyone from being fully accepted into a graduate degree program without first supplying the university with an official transcript from each and every college/university the applicant attended. It is important to note that ALL transcripts must come directly from the institution of record (mailed or hand delivered in an unopened envelope sealed by the issuing institution), and must be official. To be accepted into the University, applicants must have an overall or last 60 SCH of 2.5 or higher. Degree programs may require a higher GPA for admission.

  • Official transcripts can be mailed to: Texas A&M University-Texarkana, ATTN: Office of Admissions, 7101 University Ave, Texarkana, TX 75503

Other Materials

Because the graduate level of education requires in-depth training regarding the program of study, some degree programs require additional documentation or information before making a final admissions decision.

Standardized Tests (GRE, GMAT)

One of the predictors used nationally to determine aptitude and potential ability in meeting the academic rigors of graduate studies is the use of a standardized test. Some programs require official scores on these exams as a part of the overall assessment of applicants. The Testing Center offers the MAT on a regular basis throughout the school year. Please check the Testing Center website for more information on procedures for setting up a test and testing dates.


International Students are only accepted to begin their program in the fall or spring semester. We are not able to admit an International Student to begin study during the summer semester.
