Graduate School

Message from the Dean

Thank you all for your patience during this time of adjustment and change. I understand you may be unsure how these changes will affect you and your academic career. The Graduate School is working with the academic departments and advisors to help you navigate these challenges. Please continue to check your LeoMail and the Stay Healthy Lions website for updates on academic issues and health information. You are not alone. We are here to help.

Jennifer L. Schroeder, PhD
Dean of the Graduate School


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become difficult for many to take graduate entrance exams such as the GRE and the GMAT. In considering this, Texas A&M University-Commerce is waiving the GRE/GMAT requirement for graduate applications for Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 for most graduate programs. At this time, applicants to the graduate program in Educational Psychology are not eligible for the GRE/GMAT waiver.

For the programs for which the GRE/GMAT requirement is waived, the applicant must meet one of the program’s other options for the GRE/GMAT OR submit a resume/vita and statement of goals. The statement of goals is limited to 500 words and should address why the applicant wants to pursue the degree and how they feel it would benefit their current or future career.
