You must apply to Texas A&M University at Galveston at www.applytexas.org.

NROTC applicants can major in anything they wish.
Submit a Corps Application for the Texas A&M Maritime Academy License Option (LO) Program, the LO/SSOP Program, NROTC or Drill and Ceremonies. We cannot accept you into the Texas A&M Maritime Academy until you are first accepted to attend TAMUG, in the undergraduate or graduate programs. Those applying to the graduate program need to visit the graduate studies website.
Texas A&M Maritime Academy Midshipmen applicants also must submit an original birth certificate or a certified copy. And a copy of your Social Security card. These may be presented at O-Week.

License Option Midshipmen need to complete the TWIC card process from the Transportation Security Administration. This is a "Transportation Worker Identification Credential." You must show up at O-Week with at least a receipt to show that you have applied for your TWIC. NROTC applicants do not need a TWIC card.
All midshipmen are required to live in on-campus housing (unless approved for Victor Company). You must submit an on-line housing application and $300 deposit to be admitted to Regiment Housing. If you are not admitted to housing, you may not be permitted to participate in the Corps of Midshipmen.
Midshipmen who meet the following criteria may apply to participate in Victor Company, which enables them to live off-campus. Midshipmen who meet these criteria will be considered for Victor Company, but approval is not automatic. Living on-campus is considered an integral part of the learning experience of the Corps of Midshipmen. If you apply for Victor Company, please make sure you have been accepted before you make housing plans:
You will be admitted or denied as quickly as possible when your application is complete. If you are admitted, you will receive a Corps acceptance packet with more information (see Midshipman Orientation). If you have applied for Victor Company, please make sure you have been accepted before making housing plans.
