After you apply

After you submit your application
Applications submitted via the Apply Texas web site will take 48 hours to appear in our student database; paper applications may take longer as they must be entered manually. Other required documentation (e.g., transcripts) will be processed by our office in the order in which it is received.

Checking the status of your application
After you have submitted all items to be reviewed for admission, it can take up to several weeks before a decision on your application is made. However, you can check the status of your application at any time by:

    • Giving us a call.
      Contact an Admissions representative by phone at 361.825.2624, press 1 to connect to the Office of Recruitment and Admissions.

    • Sending us an e-mail.
      Click here to inquire by e-mail 

  • Stopping by in person.
    Visit the Office of Recruitment and Admissions, located on the first floor of the Student Services Center (Round Building).

What should I do in the meantime?
While you're waiting to hear back on your application, you'll want to get a head start on some of the other processes you may need to address after a decision on your application is made.

Need to make changes to your application?
You can send your revisions to the Office of Admissions. Please include your full name, contact information, and your University-assigned Student ID.
