Application Requirements

For Current Freshman/First Year Students

Most Business Honors students are admitted through the Incoming Freshman admissions process. One additional admission opportunity is available to you during your freshman (first) year.


You must have been admitted to Texas A&M via the freshman admission process and begun enrollment in the summer or fall semester.

Current business (BUAD) majors: earn a 3.7 or higher GPA in your first fall semester.

Current non-business majors: earn a 3.7 or higher GPA in your first fall semester and meet the requirements for entry to Mays Business School by the end of your first spring semester.


The application consists of a biographical application form, essay, Texas A&M transcript, and an updated one-page resume. The application process may include an interview for some students. Application information will be available on this webpage in mid-December each year.

Deadline: There is no application currently available. The application for Class of 2025 will open in mid-December with a defined deadline in early spring.

Timeline: Selections are made in March each year. If you are selected, you will meet with a Business Honors advisor before you register for the following semester.


For Current Freshman/First Year Students (Spring admission)

If you were admitted to and began enrollment at Texas A&M in a spring semester rather than a fall semester, you may still apply to Business Honors. You must have been admitted to the university through the freshman admissions process. If you can reasonably anticipate earning a 3.7 or higher GPA after your first semester and are interested in applying to Business Honors, email during your first semester (around April) for more information on how to apply.
