Galveston


Howdy!
 
Welcome to the International Student Services (ISS) webpage for International Sea Aggies. The purpose of this page is to provide information that is unique for international students attending Texas A&M University at Galveston. Much of the information included throughout the rest of the ISS website is applicable to you, so be sure to review it.
 
Campus Liaison
Although there is no international student office located on the Galveston campus, all international students attending Texas A&M University at Galveston will have access to the International Student Services (ISS) office on the College Station campus. ISS will also arrange to visit your campus at least once per year. You will be notified about this visit through an email message to your @email.tamu.edu account.
 
All ISS advisors are available to assist you and can process requests for you. Even if you cannot visit our office in person, requests can be submitted directly to ISS via email (iss@tamu.edu), fax (979-862-4633), or mail (1226 TAMU, College Station, TX 77843-1226). We are also happy to conduct appointments with you over the phone. Appointments do need to be scheduled in advance by calling ISS at 979-845-1824.

At least one individual at each campus has been designated as an ISS liaison. The ISS liaison serves as your on-campus contact and can assist you with communicating with ISS as needed. The ISS liaison will conduct your New International Student Check-In from the Galveston campus. Immigration advising and document processing will not be handled by your campus liaison. These services will be provided by the ISS office in College Station.

Currently, your Galveston campus liaison to ISS is the following individual:

College: Texas A&M University at Galveston
Phone: 409-740-4836

Engineering at Galveston Program
For information about the various resources and departments available to assist current students at the Texas A&M University Galveston Campus, visit http://www.tamug.edu/studentlife/currentstudents/currentstudents.html.

Students participating in the Engineering at Galveston program should visit the Texas A&M University Co-Enrollment Partnerships webpage for further details. Those students who require a Form I-20 for F-1 status or a Form DS-2019 for J-1 status should take note of the following. For general information about the Engineering at Galveston program, please visit https://engineering.tamu.edu/academics/engineering-at-galveston.html.
  • When you receive your initial Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 from ISS, please review it to ensure it correctly indicates that you will be studying at the Galveston campus. If it does not, please contact ISS at iss@tamu.edu or 979-845-1824 to obtain a corrected document.
 
  • Make sure you inform ISS if you are transitioning to the TAMU-College Station campus after you complete the entry-to-a-major process because a new Form I-20/DS-2019 will be required. The new I-20/DS-2019 will reflect your new major as well as the change from the Galveston to the College Station campus.
 
  • If you will stay on the TAMUG campus in one of the College of Engineering Bachelor’s degree programs offered at TAMUG, your I-20/DS-2019 will reflect your new major but there will be no need to change from the Galveston to the College Station campus.
 
  • Once you know the semester during which your entry-to-a-major will take place, please send an email to iss@tamu.edu with your full name, UIN, and a request for an updated I-20/DS-2019 reflecting your new major and, if applicable, your transfer to the College Station campus for the specified semester.
