Q: What is a K number, and where can I find mine?

A: A K number is your unique student ID used to access self-service tools (i.e. Jaguar Connect, JagWire, Blackboard). Once we receive your admissions application, we will send you this ID by standard mail and email. 

Q: Can I pay my application fee online?

A: New, incoming students must pay their application fee: in person (cash, card, check, money order) or via mail (check, money order).

Former students who still have access to JagWire may be able to pay via MoneyConnect.  Call Student Business Services to check if you are able to. 

Q: Can I check my admission status online?

A: Yes.  You will see an option for "Check Your Admission Status" on the right side of this page. Your Login ID will be your K Number (Must use a capital K) or Social Security Number (if you do not know your K Number).  Your PIN will be your six digit date of birth (MMDDYY).

Once you have logged in, click on the Admission Term that you applied for.  

Review Application Status:

If Application Status is Incomplete Items Outstanding, see Requirement/Received section.  If the Received portion does not have a date, then that item has not been received.

If Application Status is Complete Ready for Evaluation, please allow up to a week for evaluation.

If Application Status is Decision Made, then check Decision

Graduate Students :

If Application Status is Out to Department, the Office of Admissions has not received an admissions decision from the department. For questions on the status, please contact the department of your anticipated major.

If Decision is Conditionally Admitted, full admission is pending graduate test scores (GRE, GMAT, MAT).  You have until mid-term of your first semester to submit acceptable scores.  

Q: What is considered an official transcript?

A: An official transcript sent by mail or hand-delivered must be in a sealed envelope from the sending institution, dated within the year, and on official transcript paper. Electronic transcripts are only accepted as official when received from the sending institution through a secure server, such as: eSCRIP-SAFE, National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment, TranscriptsNetwork. Electronic transcripts should be sent to admissions@tamusa.tamus.edu or graduateadmissions@tamusa.tamus.edu.

Q: Does A&M-San Antonio accept CLEP credit?

A: Yes, the CLEP credit that is accepted can be found in our University Catalog on page 76. 

Q: I could not attend my admission term; do I need to reapply? 

A: Yes. If you did not attend the term you applied for you will need to reapply. If your transcripts are over one year old, you will also be required to re-submit official transcripts.

Note: Prior to January 2016 students may submit a change of term form, but only for the Spring 2016, Summer 2016, or Fall 2016 terms. No change of terms will be allowed after December 2015. 

Q: Is there an Admissions Appeal process?

A: Yes. Undergraduate students who have not satisfied the 2.0 GPA requirement, but have met all other requirements, may submit an Admissions Decision Appeal form.  The form is available at the Welcome Center. A personal statement must be submitted with the appeal, and should be returned to the Welcome Center. 

Q: I'm an A&M-SA graduate, and now I want to pursue a graduate program, do I need to reapply and update my transcripts? 

A: Yes, you will need to submit an application for graduate admissions, but you will not need resubmit transcripts. If any additional documents are needed to complete your file, the Office of Admissions will reach out to you.

Q: I already have a master's degree. Do I still need to take a graduate admissions test?

A: No, the graduate admissions test requirement is waived for students who have a master's degree.
