Thank you for your interest in our programs.  We have a new website and application process.

The new website is through the Texas A&M University.  This link leads to detailed instructions for this new process:

Apply online through APPLYTEXAS at First, select Texas A&M University (College Station), Application Type, Semester of Entry, and then select the Oral Biology, M.S.” or “Oral Biology, Ph.D.”  major. There is a question at the end of the application that asks what campus you want to attend; you should pick Dallas.  

Letters of recommendation can be requested through the Texas A&M University Applicant Information System (AIS) via the Howdy Portal or directly at  AIS access is granted after your application has been received, your Universal Identification Number has been issued and you have activated your NetID.  You will receive instructions on how to activate your NetID.  

We have only one application deadline, December 15th.  Besides using the online application process through APPLYTEXAS, other requirements include:

  1. One official transcript must be sent from each college that you have attended.  

  2. The Texas A&M University Admissions office does not accept credential evaluations from private companies.  We perform our own evaluation of foreign credentials.  Therefore, we require the official native language transcript with an accompanying official English translation.

  3. Texas A&M University will accept transcripts sent electronically through SPEEDE or eSCRIP-SAFE. Transcripts from any other vendor will not be accepted.

  4. Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores – please use the code 6003.

  6. Deadline for applications: December 15 is the next admissions deadline.

  7. Financial support - We do not support MS degree candidates, but support may be available for Ph.D. students.

  8. Visiting the campus is not encouraged.  If the graduate committee wants to interview you, they will send an invitation.  However, you will not be reimbursed for travel expenses for interviews.

The graduate committee will not review an application until it is complete.
