Facts About Student Life

Students can choose from 120-plus undergraduate degree programs and 240 master's and Ph.D. programs. About 80 percent of the student body receives about $420 million in financial aid annually. Twenty-five percent of the freshman class are the first in their family to attend college.

In the course of their studies, students have the opportunity to lead one or more of the 800 student organizations on campus. The many student groups at Texas A&M — from Greek letter fraternities and sororities, to faith-based organizations, to career-focused societies — help students find their niche both personally and professionally. Texas A&M has one of the nation's largest university intramural sports programs, with one in four Aggies participating.

While it's been more than four decades since Texas A&M was an all-male military college, its Corps of Cadets remains the largest uniformed body of university students in the nation outside the U.S. service academies, with over 2,300 men and women in ROTC programs in all four military branches.

The opportunity for on-campus living for more than 10,000 students and a vibrant off-campus community near the university provides a true family atmosphere.
