  2. Select business administration (Business) as the first choice major.
  3. Select ‘YES’ to the Honors Programs Question on the application.

It is highly recommended that all applicants also submit at least one letter of recommendation directly to the Texas A&M Office of Admissions; however, it is not required. Letters of recommendation should be from an academic source (preferably a teacher) who knows the applicant well. Applicants should take this as an opportunity to tell the reviewers something the rest of the application does not. For more information on how to submit a letter of recommendation, click here.

It is preferred for applicants to provide information regarding extracurricular activities, community service, awards, and employment directly in the “Activities” section of the Apply Texas or Coalition Application, as opposed to an uploaded resume.

Deadline: All application materials must be received by December 1st. Late applications will not be accepted.

Selection Process

The selection process for Business Honors is separate from the admission process for Texas A&M University.

All Texas A&M admissions decisions are made by the Office of Admissions. Selections decisions for Business Honors are mailed separately from Texas A&M University admissions notifications.

Business Honors is also separate from the University Honors Program. It is possible to be in both programs, or just one or the other. Please note there are two separate application processes for these programs, one for Business Honors and one for University Honors.

Business Honors admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis. All decision letters will be mailed by February 15th.

Aside from the requirements listed above, there are no additional application requirements for Business Honors. Selections will be made using the Apply Texas Application or The Coalition Application and all materials sent to the Office of Admissions. Please do not send any additional materials to the Business Honors office. We review applications electronically and cannot accommodate supplemental documents.
