4+1 Application Process

To be eligible for this option, a student must currently be enrolled as an undergraduate student at Texas A&M University, have an overall GPR ≥3.25, and be scheduled to graduate in a spring semester.  In addition, students must have room in their final undergraduate semester to also take two graduate courses (six credit hours). 

Since only one admissions application can be live at a given time, 4+1 applicants will apply for the fall semester before they actually wish to matriculate.  

Application Deadlines

Students must apply before or during their junior year according to the following deadlines:

February 15 International Applicant Final Deadline
May 1 U.S. Applicant Final Deadline

How to Apply

  • Meet with the MS-MIS academic advisor, Dr. Aaron Becker.
  • Take the GMAT or GRE.
  • Apply online. (Select the MS Management Information Systems program)

To avoid processing delays and submission issues, the application instructions should be closely followed.  We also recommend that applicants reference our BusinessCAS System Information and Tips.

Financial Aid

All students admitted to the program are considered for financial aid.  There is not a separate application for this.  Instead, an applicant’s admissions application will also serve as his/her financial aid application.  Financial aid offers will be communicated to selected students via e-mail shortly after offers of admission are extended.  Texas A&M University participates in the Council of Graduate Schools’ (CGS) Resolution Regarding Graduate Scholars, Fellows, Trainees and Assistantships.
