WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

When you submit your ApplyTexas application, please allow one full business day for our University to receive your information. Once we receive your application, you will be sent a confirmation email from the Graduate School that contains information regarding your application and your student ID number (CWID).

At this point, if you taking courses or pursuing a graduate certificate within the College of Humanities, Social Sciences, Arts (CHSSA), please contact Amanda.Grant@tamuc.edu to notify her that your application has been received and processed by the Graduate School. Your application is not tracked by "area of interest" so the department does not have the ability to identify you and your application, thus, you should contact Shelby after you've applied so you are given appropriate next steps and advising.

You will continue to work with the Graduate School to complete the application requirements and start your journey in the certificate program at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Please note, all application materials should be sent to the Graduate School.

Once your application is complete, you'll work with your Program Coordinator in regards to registration for courses.

Let our staff assist you during your application process. We are happy to help!
