|Terms and Conditions|
Engineering students in the Engineering Academy program:
Note that any transferable credits earned through institutions other than Texas Southmost College or Texas A&M prior to entry into the program will count toward the Texas Southmost College credit requirement only; grades received for these credits will not count toward the Texas Southmost College CGPA requirement. Once a student has entered the program, all credits must be earned at Texas A&M and Texas Southmost College if they are to be used to satisfy program completion requirements. Any Credit by Examination received through Texas A&M before the start of the program will count toward the Texas Southmost College credit requirement.
Removal from the Texas A&M Engineering Academy at Texas Southmost College
Pathways to full admission to a degree-granting major in the College of Engineering
Students who complete the required coursework and earn a 3.5 CGPA or higher at each institution are guaranteed entry to the first choice engineering major at the end of their first year. Detailed information can be found on the Engineering Academy Entry-to-a-Major website.
Upon entry to a degree-granting major in the College of Engineering, an engineering student in the Engineering Academy program may choose to remain co-enrolled at Texas Southmost College until the completion of the two-year program or decide to attend Texas A&M University full time and use reverse articulation to complete the two-year degree. Engineering students remaining at the two-year institutions after being granted entry to a major will be advised by the advisor in the degree-granting major as well as the Engineering Academy advisor.
Program Completion: Engineering students in the Engineering Academy program who do not meet the entry-to-a-major application requirements can still secure full admission to Texas A&M by satisfying program completion requirements. In particular, students must meet the following requirements by the end of the first summer session following the second year of enrollment in the Engineering Academy program:
Upon successful completion, students can apply for a change of curriculum into a degree-granting major at Texas A&M. Advisors for the Engineering Academy program will help engineering students identify majors in or outside the College of Engineering that are suitable for their academic goals and CGPA competitiveness.
Transfer Admission: Engineering students in the Engineering Academy program that seek admission to a major outside the College of Engineering prior to program completion may elect to submit a transfer application and go through a competitive review process. Detailed information can be found on the Office of Admissions website.
Engineering students who are not granted entry-to-a-major, do not successfully complete the Engineering Academy program requirements, or gain transfer admission by the end of the first summer session following their second year will not be able to continue their enrollment at Texas A&M, but they may be eligible for admission as a returning student after the following fall semester (subject to current readmission criteria). Detailed information can be found on the Office of Admissions website.
