Upper Level Admissions

The upper (professional phase) level application process applies specifically to the BIED undergraduate program and is not associated with admission into Texas A&M University.  For admission into the University, refer to the Office of Admissions. 

All undergraduate students who are currently enrolled in the biliingual education major must apply to be formally admitted into the upper level (professional phase) of the program. The application process is competitive and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

To apply, students must have 45-60 completed credit hours. Cohorts are selected for admission in the Spring for current BIED majors and in the Summer for transfer students, to begin Fall semester.
