In addition to the university graduate admission requirements, the Master of Urban Planning (MUP) program requires the following.

All applications received by Dec. 15, 2022 will be reviewed for Fall 2023 admission, and considered for scholarships offered by the School of Architecture and for departmental funding.

Applicants received after Dec. 15 will be reviewed for admissions (and considered for funding) as space and funds allow. This includes Aggie Priority applications.

If you are a Texas A&M undergraduate, please consider submitting your application via Aggie Priority as early as possible.

All international applicants must submit their application by December 15 to be considered for Fall 2023 admissions. We cannot honor late applications from international applicants.

Minimum Education

A bachelor’s degree is required for admission to the MUP program.

Admitted applicants who are still earning the prerequisite degree are admitted contingent on the completion of that degree. Applicants who do not meet this contingency must reapply after graduation.


Résumés should include your employment history, educational record, publications, awards, and any community/volunteer experiences you may have. Please upload your résumé to the Texas A&M GradCas System.

Statement of Purpose

Your statement of purpose should clearly demonstrate your interest in the program. Statements of purpose are used to gauge whether an applicant will be a good fit in the program based on research interests and prior experiences. We encourage you to identify faculty whose interests coincide with yours in your statement of purpose.


You should provide three letters of recommendation from individuals who are familiar with your academic achievement and potential. If you have been out of school for a number of years and are unable to contact former professors, you may submit non-academic references (e.g., employers).

Applicants can access the electronic letter of recommendation system available via the Texas A&M GradCas System.

Test Scores

The MUP program does not require Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores for admittance at this time.
