Admission Deadlines and Application Fee

Admission Priority Dates and Deadlines

Prospective undergraduate students are encouraged to apply for admission as early as possible. Application for admission, official transcripts, and all other requested documentation must be received by the below deadlines. Adhering to the priority deadlines will ensure an admission decision will be rendered before the beginning of the semester and will provide the student an opportunity to register for all available courses within the semester of entry.

Because A&M-Central Texas offers a variety of course scheduling options, applications for admission are accepted through the middle of each semester. Each long semester (i.e., fall and spring) consists of three parts of term: a session comprised of 16-week courses and two sessions comprised of 8-week courses, one of which begins in the middle of the semester. Therefore, students who apply and/or receive notice of admission after the priority deadline can still enroll in the second 8-week courses.

Deferment of Admission

Acceptance to the university is valid for the semester noted in the acceptance letter. For students unable to attend the initial semester of admission, A&M-Central Texas offers a one-time free deferment of admission to the university. Students may defer admission to begin coursework in either of the two upcoming semesters. Students who have already taken advantage of the one-time free deferment are required to reapply via ApplyTexas and pay the nonrefundable application fee. 

It is the student's responsibility to request a deferment of admission. If granted, the form and/or request serves as the admission application for the new entry semester and student information, including residency classification, will be obtained from the initial application. It is the student's responsibility to ensure all of the information is accurate and necessary corrections are made prior to the census date of the applicable semester.

While not considered a deferment of admission, it is important to note that former A&M-Central Texas students who withdrew from the university to perform active military service as a member of the United States Armed Forces or the Texas National Guard are eligible to be readmitted without reapplication and application fee, so long as the student is otherwise eligible to register for class and returns within a year of being released from active duty.
