2) Upload your application documents.
Please read this section thoroughly. Go to http://applicant.tamu.edu, and login in with your NetID.
After you log into AIS, you will be able to upload documents, and submit requests for your letters of recommendation.
Please note: you will see information regarding your Graduate Test Score – that is not necessary for this degree program, and Geosciences will submit a waiver for this requirement, once your other documents have been received.
(1) To upload your Resume/CV, Statement of Purpose, and unofficial transcripts, click on the "My Documents" tab in the menu bar, and select upload documents. Follow the prompts.
Graduate applicants are required to submit either a Resume or Curriculum Vitae.
Statement of Purpose
Upload your statement of purpose, limited to 1000 words. Note: you may include information here that you also included in your ApplyTexas application questions.
Official Transcripts and Records.
Submit transcripts from all colleges or universities attended. NOTE: You do not need to submit a transcript from Texas A&M University. Official transcripts (not unofficial transcripts/advising sheets) uploaded via the Applicant Information System (AIS) will temporarily complete your file for review. If you receive admission, you must submit all required original official transcripts (and diplomas) before you will be allowed to register for classes. The official transcripts will be compared to any unofficial documents used for admission. If discrepancies are identified, the admission may be rescinded.
Electronic transcripts can be processed much faster than paper transcripts. Texas A&M will accept transcripts sent electronically through PARCHMENT, SPEEDE, eScrip-SAFE or National Clearing House. Transcripts from any other vendor will not be accepted.
(2) To upload/submit letters of recommendation, there is a specific university process:
Under the “My Documents” tab, you’ll see Letter of Recommendation in the dropdown list. Click on that link, and follow the directions for requesting your letters of recommendation.
Letters of Recommendation
Request 3 letters of recommendation. Recommendations should be written narratives by individuals who can address your responsibilities and skills, professional potential, motivation, and the potential impact of the program on the development of your career.
In AIS, you’ll also see a checklist called “Documents Required by Graduate Department” where you’ll see progress indicators regarding your resume, transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc., each of which will show a green checkmark once you’ve completed the associated upload task. You’ll also see a GRS department checklist, which you also need to submit. Finally, you’ll see a Confirmation tab on the checklist, and once all the others are green, you need to click to confirm. After all those checkmarks are green, your packet will be forwarded to and reviewed by the College of Geosciences. You may log into AIS during this time, in order to review the status of your application. Please do not contact the college directly during this time, as the volume of applications received prevents any personal correspondence during this process.
