Seniors: Texas A&M Important Information from Derek Nido


We have extended our application deadline to January 2, 2018 and our credential deadline to January 10, 2018.  The deadlines were extended primarily for hurricane victims, but we did extended the deadline for all students.  However, even though the deadline has been extended, we are still encouraging students in the Dallas-Fort Worth and East Texas Areas to submit before December 1, 2017 (because why would you want to be rushing to submit your college application during Winter Break?).  The university will also be closed the week in-between Christmas and New Years, so no one will be available to answer questions or receive documents during that time. 


Our Priority Deadline for the FAFSA/TASFA remains at December 15, 2017


Please note that I have offered to meet with students this week and next in the evenings for Aggie Coffee Talks.  Students with either an open or submitted application were notified this afternoon regarding the dates and times.  Please encourage any of your students who may have outstanding questions or concerns to attend one of these sessions. 


During these Aggie Coffee Talks, I do have time allotted for Walk-Ins.  If you have some questions or would like to drop off some materials for your students, please feel free to meet with me during the Walk-In times below:



Tuesday, November 28, 2017Walk-Ins: 6-6:30pm & 8-8:30pm

Location: Starbucks, 113 N NW Loop 323, Tyler, TX 75703

Wednesday, November 29, 2017Walk-Ins: 8-8:30pm

Thursday, November 30, 2017Walk-Ins: 6-6:30pm & 8-8:30pm

**I will be hosting similar Coffee Talks in Texarkana and in Longview next week.  I will send those dates/times out later this week.


As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  I am always happy to help.


Thanks and Gig’em,
