Non-Degree Seeking Students

Admission is intended for applicants with a high school diploma (with the exception of high school concurrent enrollment participants). 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. 
  • Summer transient students.

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.
