Program Entry requirements

Some undergraduate degree programs at Texas A&M University-Central Texas have additional entry requirements separate from general admission. Students admitted to the university who have yet to be formally admitted to one of these programs may be eligible to enroll in certain coursework; however, the number of courses a student may complete prior to official program entry may vary by department.
