We are delighted that you are interested in pursuing graduate studies on our beautiful campus in the heart of Texas. Having been an international student myself (first as an exchange student, then as a Ph.D. student), I have first-hand knowledge of the exciting journey you are embarking on. The teams in The Graduate College and in the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) are here to help with all the steps involved in becoming a student on our campus and completing your graduate degree. We are happy to answer any questions you may have during the application process — and once you are here, we look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant graduate community.
