Non-Degree Seeking and Re-Admission

Re-Admission Applicants

Any former student who has resigned, been dropped from the rolls, or has not attended Texas A&M University at Galveston or Texas A&M University for at least one full semester must complete an Application for Readmission and submit it to the Office of Admissions and Records at Galveston as early as possible. The application can be found at

If the student has attended any other institutions since last enrolled at Texas A&M University at Galveston or Texas A&M University, then two official transcripts from each institution attended should be submitted at the time of reapplication.
Decisions for readmission are based on the following:

  • GPR on Texas A&M coursework;
  • GPR on coursework since leaving Texas A&M;
  • desired major;
  • and information presented in the application.

Readmission to the University does not constitute readmission to the U.S. Maritime Service Corp of Cadets. Students returning to the University who wish to enter or reenter the Corps of Cadets as a license-option student must apply for admission to the Corps of Cadets through the Superintendent's Office.

Non Degree Seeking Students

Admission is limited and is intended for applicants with a high school diploma (with the exception of high school concurrent enrollment participants) or for degree applicants who do not intend to pursue a baccalaureate degree at Texas A&M. This includes:

  • Applicants completing established Texas A&M University requirements for teacher or other certification.
  • Local residents or University employees taking courses on a part-time basis.  
  • Applicants completing a prescribed set of courses as preparation for application to graduate studies or professional programs (i.e., medical school, veterinary school, law school or CPA exam). 
  • Others as deemed appropriate by the Office of Admissions and Records and the college or program of admission. 

Additional requirements to complete an undergraduate non-degree application: 

  • A statement explaining why enrollment at Texas A&M is desired. 
  • A complete, official transcript showing high school graduation or the highest and latest collegiate course work attempted or completed. 
  • Additional information presented in the application may be considered. 

Priority is given to qualified applicants for their initial bachelor’s degree; therefore, non-degree admission may be limited or not available. See the Classification section of this catalog for the enrollment rights and privileges of this classification.
