Q: What is a J number, and where can I find mine?

A: A J number is your unique student ID used to access self-service tools (i.e. JagWire and Blackboard). Once we receive your admissions application, we will send you this ID by standard mail and email. You can also call 784-1300 to retrieve your student ID.  

If you are a former A&M San Antonio student (attended previously) your student ID may begin with a K rather than a J number. Our communication will make it clear which ID to use. 

Q: Can I pay my application fee online?

A: Yes, you can pay for your application fee via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover) on ApplyTexas before submitting your application. You can also pay via check or money order at our Student Business Services Office. Former students who still have access to JagWire may be able to pay via MoneyConnectCall Student Business Services to check if you are able to pay via MoneyConnect.

If you have received an application fee waiver via SAT, ACT or other entity, the office of admissions will review and consider waiving your application fee. For more information on application fee waivers please click here

Q: Can I check my admission status online?

A: Yes.  You can visit our Check Your Admissions Status page and follow the detailed directions to check the status of your application.

You will also see an option for "Check Your Admission Status" on the right side of this page.

Once you are at JaguarDen, your Login ID will be your unique student ID, which begins with either a J or a K (must be capitalized). Your PIN will be your six digit date of birth (MMDDYY).

Once you have logged in, click on the Admission Term that you applied for.  

Review Application Status:

If Application Status is Incomplete Items Outstanding, see Requirement/Received section.  If the Received portion does not have a date, then that item has not been received.

If Application Status is Complete Ready for Evaluation, on average, it can take up to three weeks for an admission decision to be made. Processing times will vary due to volume.

If Application Status is Decision Made, then check Decision

Graduate Students :

If Application Status is Out to Department, the Office of Admissions has not received an admissions decision from the department. For questions on the status, please contact the department of your anticipated major.

If Decision is Conditionally Admitted, full admission is pending graduate test scores (GRE, GMAT, MAT).  You have until mid-term of your first semester to submit acceptable scores.  

Q: What is considered an official transcript?

A: An official transcript sent by mail or hand-delivered must be in a sealed envelope from the sending institution, dated within the year, and on official transcript paper. Electronic transcripts are only accepted as official when received from the sending institution through a secure server, such as: eSCRIP-SAFE, National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment, TranscriptsNetwork. Electronic transcripts should be sent to admissions@tamusa.edu or graduateadmissions@tamusa.edu.

Q: Does A&M-San Antonio accept CLEP credit?

A: Yes, the CLEP credit that is accepted can be found in our University Catalog on page 76. 

Q: I could not attend my admission term; do I need to reapply? 

A: Yes. If you did not attend the term you applied for, you will need to reapply. If your transcripts are over one year old, or have coursework in progress, or you've attended an institution in your absence from A&M San Antonio, you will also be required to re-submit official transcripts. 

Q: Is there an Admissions Appeal process?

A: Yes. Undergraduate students who have not satisfied the 2.0 GPA requirement, may submit an Admissions Decision Appeal form.  The form is available at the Welcome Center. A personal statement must be submitted with the appeal, and should be returned to the Welcome Center. 

Q: I'm an A&M-SA graduate, and now I want to pursue a graduate program, do I need to reapply and update my transcripts? 

A: Yes, you will need to submit an application for graduate admissions, but you will not need resubmit transcripts. If any additional documents are needed to complete your file, the Office of Admissions will reach out to you.

Q: I already have a master's degree. Do I still need to take a graduate admissions test?

A: No, the graduate admissions test requirement is waived for students who have a master's degree.

However, the department of your intended major has the right to require graduate admissions test scores and can make that a condition of your admission offer. You may need to work with the academic advisor for your intended major to determine if the test score requirement will be waived. 

Q: I missed the deadline for this term. Can I still apply to attend the Flex II session? 

A: No. The deadline to apply for any term includes all parts of term. Flex II offerings are only available to current students. 

Q: Is it possible for my application fee to be waived? 

A: Yes. A&M San Antonio does honor application fee waivers that our applicants provide such as ACT, SAT, McNair Scholar, etc. However, A&M San Antonio does not offer institutional fee waivers. You must provide fee waiver documentation to be reviewed for an application fee waiver. If you have fee waiver documentation, please submit that documentation to admissions@tamusa.edu for review. If your fee waiver is approved, the application fee will be waived in accordance with the fee waiver provided and the application submitted. 

Note for Graduate Students :

The ApplyTexas Graduate application currently does not have the option to choose an application fee waiver on the payment page of the application (the final page). However, A&M San Antonio does honor application fees waiver for our graduate applicants. If you plan to submit an application fee waiver, please choose the “Pay with Check or Money Order” option on the payment page. The Office of Admissions has an internal process for reviewing application fee waivers for graduate students. Please remember you must provide fee waiver documentation to be reviewed for an application fee waiver which can be sent to graduateadmissions@tamusa.edu. On the payment page of the application, please do not make a credit card payment. If you pay the application fee by credit card, on the payment page in ApplyTexas, we will not be able to waive your application fee even if you have appropriate documentation as we are not able to refund paid application fees. If you have any further questions on the fee waiver process please see the attached document or call 784-1300 and ask to speak with an Admissions Counselor. 

Q: How do I know whether the documents I am submitting are "official" documents? 

A: The Office of Admissions may require a number of different documentation from applicants based on the applicants individual situation; each document may have unique document submission standards. Click here to get a pdf copy of our Document Submission Standards Guide to help you determine how to submit official documents to our office to be used for your admission application. 

Q: I am graduating this semester, can I be admitted to graduate school prior to my degree being awarded? 

A: Applicants may  be reviewed prior to their bachelor's degree being awarded per our Letter of Degree Completion process. Applicants must be eligible to participate in this process by having a 3.0 or better cumulative undergraduate GPA, be eligible by program, and can only be applying in the long terms (Fall and Spring). Summer applicants and International applicants are not eligible. For more information on this process click here for a pdf handout that details this process.
