Application Procedures

Thank you for your interest in SFA's graduate studies. Once you know your desired program or certificate, visit Apply Texas as a first step in the official application process.

Review the requirements of each program, attending to their specific application deadlines and requirements.

Next, request your bachelor degree conferring university or college send your official transcripts by email to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies.
