Application Requirements

We expect strong scores on the TOEFL or similar exam and a Statement of Purpose showing evidence of research and knowledge of our faculty research expertise. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact potential faculty advisors in their field of interest to discuss research and funding options before applying to the program. We recommend all application materials be submitted early as the visa process can be lengthy. The International Student Services office will initiate the visa process. The Department of Oceanography does not have any control over visa requirements or lead-time.


Texas A&M University offers international student resources, with resources for prospective students, current students, and former students.
