Lightning Round: Applying in this deadline enables students to receive an admissions decision by August 30, which gives them adequate time to update their resume before the fall career fairs.  *Please note:  2021/22 Academic Year applications will only be accepted from Texas A&M Juniors and Sophomores due to high demand for the program.  

Priority 1: This is the primary deadline for current Texas A&M juniors and sophomores. It gives maximum time to register for any prerequisite courses the student needs to take in the spring semester. The deadline also gives time for the student to prepare their resume for the spring career fairs. *Texas A&M juniors and sophomores can also apply in the Lightning and Priority 1 rounds.

Priority 2: For Texas A&M sophomore students who have too busy of a fall semester, this deadline offers a final option. The deadline allows the student to know just in time to register for any prerequisite courses and to prepare their resume for the spring career fairs. *Texas A&M sophomores can apply in all three rounds.
