Important Considerations

Sending application materials to the wrong address will delay the application review process. Include your name and address on portfolio - notebook, slides, CD-ROM. Include an e-mail address with each item submitted to Texas A&M University. Applications will not be processed by the TAMU Admissions Office until the application fee and all requested information -- GRE, TOEFL, transcripts, etc. -- has been received. Applications cannot be reviewed without all necessary information: transcripts, GRE scores, TOEFL score, portfolio (if required), letters of recommendation and statement of purpose. The application fee cannot be waived or paid for by the department. GRE scores will not be waived. Applicants may check their application status online at the Office of Admissions and Records Web site. Application deadline for fall semester is January 15. Applicants who seek financial assistance and fellowships should submit all application materials to the Admissions Office by December 1 for fall entry. The Master of Landscape Architecture Program does not allow Spring admissions. For program information, please contact the graduate program coordinator for the Master of Landscape Architecture.
