Texas A&M University Counselor Connection Update
Counselor Connection - SPECIAL EDITION from Texas A&M University
The student-led #BTHOHarvey campaign raised $30,000 and filled several moving trucks
with donated supplies for victims.

Dear Colleague:

Texas A&M University is committed to making sure every student has an opportunity to submit an application to be a part of the Aggie Family. We realize that many prospective students have been profoundly affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey; making it difficult for them to complete their applications and provide supporting documents by the December 1 deadline. We want to extend them a helping hand.

While our original application deadline was December 1, we will now be accepting both admissions and scholarship applications through January 2, 2018. Additionally, if the admissions application itself is submitted by the new deadline, we will accept required supporting documents (test scores, transcripts, etc.) through January 10, 2018.

These new deadlines apply to all prospective students, not just those affected by Hurricane Harvey. We hope this will help as many students as possible make their Aggie dream a reality.


  • Admissions applications: January 2, 2018
  • Scholarship applications: January 2, 2018
  • Supporting documents for admissions applications: January 10, 2018
  • As a reminder, in this year’s application cycle we introduced a new process by which students can self-report whether they qualify for a fee waiver based on information they provide on the ApplyTexas or Coalition application. If you have students whom you believe may need additional assistance, please encourage them to contact our office.

    The Aggie family stands with all those affected by this tragedy, and our admissions staff is ready to assist all students in any way possible. Please don’t hesitate to contact admissions@tamu.edu or 979-845-1060 with additional questions.
