Financial aid

As an MS-Marketing student, you are eligible to compete for a limited number of departmental graduate assistantships that provide a monthly wage and waiver of out-of-state tuition. In addition, all applicants are automatically considered for a limited number of departmental scholarships. More information on university financial aid is available from the Office of Student Financial Aid.

Application deadline

All applications are submitted online. Applications are accepted for the fall semester only. If applicants are accepted for the fall semester, but still need to take prerequisites, enrollment may be allowed in the spring or summer to take those prerequisite courses.

The application period begins approximately September 1.  Applications are then considered on an ongoing basis until the class is full – which typically happens in early spring.  After that, applicants meeting our admission criteria are placed on a Wait List in case a spot in the incoming class becomes available.  As there are a limited number of applicants admitted and decisions are made on a rolling basis, prospective students are encouraged to apply during the fall or early spring semester.

For consideration for a university-level Graduate Merit Fellowship (for U.S. students with very high grades and GMAT/GRE scores), applications should also be in by December 10.

Students requiring all/most prerequisite courses should enroll in January or June to take their prerequisite classes during the spring or summer semester.  International students desiring to take prerequisite courses in the spring should have their completed fall application in by September 15. U.S. students desiring to take their prerequisite courses in the spring should have their completed applications in by November 1. Students desiring to take prerequisite courses in the summer should have their application in by February 1 (international students) or March 15 (U.S. students).

Current Texas A&M University students applying to the 12 month program should apply during the fall semester of their Junior year.
