GRE test scores are required for all applicants, except for students graduating from Texas A&M with an undergraduate or graduate engineering degree unless stated otherwise by your department.

You will need to accurately report your general GRE scores in the Academic History section of this application. If admitted, you will need to have your test scores sent directly from the Educational Testing Service to EngineeringCAS (use code 4119) before you can begin classes at Texas A&M. Test scores should be from a test date within five years of the date of the application. If you took the GRE more than five years ago, your scores have expired and you will need to re-take the exam.

Proof of English Proficiency Requirement:

Applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit proof of English proficiency to be eligible for review. English proficiency can be demonstrated by one of the criteria below.

  • a minimum TOEFL score (from a test date within two years): 550 for paper-based testing (p-BT) or 80 internet-based testing (i-BT)
  • a minimum IELTS score of 6.0 overall band
  • a GRE Verbal Reasoning score of at least 146 (Subject to departmental approval),
  • Completing all years of a Bachelor’s degree or higher at a U.S. accredited university. (Subject to departmental approval)

Tests should be taken at least eight weeks prior to the appropriate application deadline to ensure a timely receipt and processing of results. We will use your highest test score from one test date. Copies of test scores are not considered official, but they may be uploaded to your application to help the university/department in reviewing your application for admission sooner.

TOEFL official test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency to EngineeringCAS (use code B887) to be considered official.

IELTS official test scores must be reported electronically from the testing center to Texas A&M’s Office of Admissions. To report your electronic IELTS, find this exact address in the test center database:

STEM OPT Extension: Not Eligible

The Master of Science in Energy offered by the Texas A&M Energy Institute, and approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, has CIP code: 30.9999.04 Multi/Interdisciplinary Studies, Other. According to the United States Department of Homeland Security and the Student and Exchange Visitor Program, this code is not among the codes on the 2016 STEM designated list. The majority of the courses within the Master of Science in Energy at Texas A&M University are individually designated as STEM courses, but that factor alone is not sufficient to merit a full designation as a STEM program. Therefore, students who graduate with a Master of Science in Energy are not eligible for the Optional Practical Training Extension for STEM Students (STEM OPT).
