Prospective Graduate Students

Will graduate recruitment continue as before?

The Graduate College is holding all its information sessions as webinars. The schedule is available online.


Can I participate in a campus tour?

All campus tours have been cancelled until further notice. In the meantime, undergraduate admissions offers an online campus tour.


Have application deadlines changed?

Some of the graduate programs have extended their application deadlines and/or are offering rolling admission. Please visit the individual program pages for more information.


What should I do about standardized tests (GRE/GMAT/TOEFL)?

Not all of our programs require the GRE/GMAT, and several programs have waived the requirement for summer and fall 2020 admission. Please note that for future semesters, ETS is offering a GRE at home test for students in the U.S. and Canada and in several countries abroad. For a complete list, please check the GRE website. We are monitoring the situation to make possible adjustments to admissions requirements for future semesters. 


I need to take the TOEFL or IELTS test, what should I do?

ETS has launched a TOEFL iBT® Special Home test to help test takers in some countries. In other countries, testing centers for the TOEFL and IELTS test have been closed. Please check the TOEFL and IELTS webpages for the most up-to-date information. If an applicant is unable to take the TOEFL/IELTS test due to test centers in their areas being closed, contact The Graduate College at gradcollege@txstate.edu to inquire about deferring your application to a future semester.


I have been admitted to a graduate program but may not be able to attend due to COVID-19. What should I do?

Many of the graduate programs allow an applicant to defer admission to a future semester.  Please contact The Graduate College at gradcollege@txstate.edu to inquire whether this is an option in your program.


I am an international student who has been granted admission to a graduate program, but I am unable to obtain a visa in time for the beginning of the summer/fall semester. What should I do?

Please contact The Graduate College at gradcollege@txstate.edu to inquire whether you can start the program while in your home country, and/or to inquire if you can defer admission to a future semester.
