Important Application Reminders
The deadline for submitting applications for admission to Texas A&M University comes early, usually December 1st. Do not wait until the last minute to apply. Apply as early as possible online at http://www.applytexas.org.
When you are ready to take the SAT or ACT, assure that you also take the writing component of the tests. Do not let anyone tell you that they are not required.
If you are awarded a 4-yr scholarship you will pay tuition and fees at the in-state resident rate.
Assure that your High School transcripts include a class ranking.
At a minimum, apply to your top 3 school choices that you submit with your scholarship application. Sometimes, you are awarded a scholarship to a 2nd or 3rd option school, and you need to be prepared for that scenario.
