Preparing Tomorrow’s Leaders
With more than 58,000 students, Texas A&M is one of the nation’s largest universities in terms of enrollment. Ranked #1 in Texas and consistently ranks among the country's top universities in attracting National Merit Scholars.
Texas A&M provided $535.7 million in financial aid to 71.3 percent of its students. But that investment isn’t merely in individual students — it’s in the very quality of Texas citizenry. Some 75 percent of Texas A&M degree-holding undergraduate and graduate students remain in Texas. That means Texas A&M produces not only industrious professionals, but also enhances their contributions to local economies and state revenues.
Texas A&M recognizes, too, that the fabric of Texas is changing. A centerpiece of Texas A&M's Vision 2020 initiative, the University has made outstanding progress in racial and ethnic diversity since 2002.
