This means having ALL documentation (transcripts, financial affidavits and bank statements, the copy of the passport, and any additional documents required by the department) turned in no later than the posted deadline. Students missing any of the documents listed above by the published deadline will be automatically denied. The deadlines are as follows:

Some programs have earlier deadlines and specific semester admission. Specific deadlines are also listed at the Graduate College web site. Specific programs may require higher standards than the minimum requirements for admissions to Graduate College. Admission requirements for specific programs are available on the website.

Please check with the department when applying for Summer admission as each program has different policies. Please keep in mind that you are required to maintain full-time status (nine hours) if Summer is your initial attendance and you hold the F-1 visa. Since course offerings are limited for this term, we encourage students to apply during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Transcripts/Marks Sheets and Diplomas

Transcripts: Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution and a recognized 4-year program either abroad or in the United States. We require transcripts, or marks sheets, from every college or university attended. To insure acceptance of your transcripts, please make sure the University Registrar or Controller of Examinations verifies the transcripts with their official signature and university seals. The official transcripts need to be placed in university sealed envelopes, with the university stamp affixed to the envelope and mailed directly to the Office of the Graduate College. Transcripts that are sent via email are not considered official and will not complete the application.

If the university issues transcripts in English, students only need to provide one transcript. However, if the university only issues transcripts in the native language, students must provide a certified translation. The Graduate College will accept translations from the following companies:

**Please note: Student do NOT need to provide transcript evaluations or grade conversions as these processes are conducted within the office of the Graduate College.

Diplomas: Applicants must submit two official diplomas or degree certificates: one translated into English and one in the native language, showing the type of degree(s) earned and the date of the degree(s), verified by the Registrar of the university with their official signature and seal affixed to the copies.

Updated Transcripts: Applicants who have not yet graduated with a bachelor’s degree should send the transcript with the most recently completed semester’s grades. The Graduate College will only calculate an applicant’s GPA after the last long (Spring or Fall) semester of coursework prior to graduation has been completed. For example: Applicants who apply for a program that will begin Fall 2016 and expect to graduate in May 2016 should send transcripts with the Fall 2015 grades ( or 4-1 marks sheets). If transcripts are submitted without this information, applicants will be notified and the application will not be considered complete until the updated transcript has been received.

Summer Admission Disclaimer

Please check with the department when applying for Summer admission as each program’s admission policies vary. Also, please keep in mind that you are required to maintain full-time status (nine hours) if Summer is your initial attendance and you hold the F-1 visa. Course offerings are typically limited for this term. Therefore, international students who are unable to identify and enroll in courses that are in their degree plan or who are required to take preparatory or background courses may be required to enroll in courses that are not a part of their degree plan in order to maintain and complete full-time enrollment for the summer. For these reasons, we encourage students to apply during the Fall and Spring semesters.

International Students Transferring from Other Institutions in the United States

International students that wish to transfer to Texas State University–San Marcos need to meet the academic as well as the immigration requirements for this transfer.  Students that have beenalready admitted into an academic program and provided the financial documentation required for their admissions should follow the steps below to process their SEVIS or immigration transfer.  This is a separate procedure not to be confused with the academic transfer done through the Office of the Graduate College.  Simply transferring academically does not complete your SEVIS transfer.

    • Notify your international/immigration student advisor at your current school of your intent to transfer and verify the procedures with them.  
    • Request your current school complete and fax the SEVIS Record Transfer-In Form.  It is your responsibility to make sure that your previous/current institution completes the SEVIS Record Transfer-In Form and submits it.  
    • Upon your notification, a DSO at your current school will update your record in SEVIS as a “transfer out” and indicate a release date.  Once this release date is reached, the International Office at Texas State will have access to your SEVIS record to process your transfer I-20.  
    • After the release date of your SEVIS record contact the Texas State International Office to confirm that all documents needed for your SEVIS transfer have been received as well as your SEVIS record.  
    • Call the International Office at (512) 245-7966 to schedule a check-in.  You must bring all of your immigration documents to this meeting.  Your transfer I-20 will be given to you at this time. For more detailed information on our Check-ins and New International Student Orientation visit our website at www.international.txstate.edu.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:

  • Transfer students must start attending classes within 5 months of the last day he or she attended classes (or ended OPT), or the next available session, whichever comes sooner.
  • If a student completes a course of study (or OPT), the student is eligible for transfer through the end of the 60-day grace period.
  • If you are planning on traveling abroad, you must re-enter the country with the I-20 from the school that holds your SEVIS record at the time.  If your release date occurs when you are abroad, the Texas State International Office will have to mail the transfer I-20 to you.
  • A student's authorization for OPT or CPT ends on the transfer release date or the end of the work authorization, whichever one is earlier.

International Student Operations Fee (Effective Fall 2006)

International students with an immigration status of "F1" or "J1" will be charged an international student operations fee in the amount of $60.00 per long term and $30.00 per summer session for the maintenance of records, compliance with government regulations, and services for nonimmigration students. Mandatory Health Insurance - International students are responsible for any medical expenses incurred while in the United States.
