Application Process

The application process for First-Year students is listed below. If you have any questions about one of the steps, an Admissions Counselor is only a phone call or email away to assist you at any time in your journey!

1. Go to BecomeAJaguar.com to create a profile and begin the application process.

2. Pay the $30 application fee and submit your application.

3. Those who have taken college work at another institution, who have “in progress” coursework on their transcripts, or who only have unofficial transcripts on file must request official transcripts be sent to the Office of Admissions* and must be in good academic standing at the previous institution.

Students are not at liberty to disregard previous college work attempted. If you have attended other institutions of higher education since you were last enrolled at Texas A&M University- San Antonio, you must submit an official transcript from each institution.

Transcripts should be sent via mail to:

Texas A&M University-San Antonio
Office of Admissions
One University Way
San Antonio, TX 78224

If previous institutions participate in the sending of secure electronic transcripts (e-script, National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment, or Trans Networks) transcripts must be sent via email to: admissions.office@tamusa.edu

4. Admission to the University does not guarantee admission to specific departments.

Please be aware if a you apply multiple times, the application submitted most recently (regardless of term or type) will void any previously submitted applications. 

If you did not enroll for the term in which you were admitted, you will be required to reapply, and will be re-evaluated to determine admissibility.
