If you have any questions about your admission status, please contact Amy Sims or call her at 903-468-8159.

Step 3 - Explore "MyLeo"

  • Click on Current Students
  • Click on MyLeo
  • Enter your ID and Password
  • Explore the options under MyLeo
  • Click on ECollege if you are taking a class online

Step 4 - Request Official Transcript
Contact the college or university where you earned your bachelor's degree and request that they send an official transcript to:  Graduate School, Texas A&M-Commerce, Box 3011, Commerce TX 75429. If you attended graduate school anywhere other than A&M-Commerce, request official graduate transcripts as well. To be on the safe side, you may also want to request a copy mailed to your home address. That will give you a backup copy.

Step 5 - Contact Academic Advisor
Once you receive your admission status, you should be free to register for classes.  Please refer to  Master's Programs in Curriculum and Instruction to locate an appropriate advisor.
