Texas A&M University Program User Guide

This guide provides you with documentation, reference guides, and direct links that answer common admissions questions about the Texas A&M University Applicant Portal, Configuration Portal, and WebAdMIT. It also contains resources that may help you work more efficiently throughout your admissions process. If you have additional questions or need further assistance, please contact your Account Manager and Client Success Manager.

Cycle Timeframes

Applicant Portal

The Applicant Portal opens in early August and closes in late January, over a 17-month period.

Configuration Portal

Between late March and mid-June, configurations are entered in the prelaunch environment. The Account Manager, Client Success Manager, and Texas A&M University review submitted configurations in June.


You can view new applicants and initiate a transfer settings shortly after the new cycle opens in early August.

Program Participation Requirements

Texas A&M University requires all programs to designate two contacts at your institution who will receive all communication from Texas A&M University, including the configuration, application, and WebAdMIT launch notifications.

Applicant Portal

The first three sections of the Texas A&M University application (i.e., Personal Information, Academic History, and Supporting Information) compose the core application. They contain questions that are commonly asked of applicants across all participating programs, such as an applicant's biographic information, standardized test scores, and experiences. The fourth section of the application is Program Materials, which is customized by you through the Configuration Portal (discussed in the next section).

You can access the Texas A&M University application and Texas A&M University Applicant Help Center to review the applicant experience. You can also create a test application in the Applicant Portal; we recommend creating a new account and adding "test" to your name (e.g., TestJohn TestDoe).

For a general overview of the applicant experience, review the following documents:

You can direct any applicant inquiries related to the application to Texas A&M University Customer Service.

Configuration Portal

Use the Configuration Portal Quick Start Guide to make sure you configure your program(s) efficiently and completely in the prelaunch environment. Be sure to check out your CAS's configuration options and review the best practices found throughout. If any optional sections of the application are required for your program (e.g., experiences, test scores, etc.), you'll want to note this on your program home page.

Once you've configured your program, you'll need to have it approved by the Account Manager, Client Success Manager, and Texas A&M University before it is available to applicants. If your program is reviewed after the cycle launches, Texas A&M University will approve it.


Review the WebAdMIT Manual for any questions related to working in WebAdMIT. The Documentation and Reference Guides and WebAdMIT Training and Support sections are additional resources as you configure WebAdMIT for your needs. Documents commonly requested include:

The Release Notes feature new enhancements in the Applicant Portal, Configuration Portal, and WebAdMIT, in addition to upcoming training opportunities.

For any questions, contact the Client Support Specialist Team.
