Welcome Back, Islanders! Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi

Fall 2019 is here! Check out this guide for information on student services and special events designed to make your first week back to school a great one!


The fall 2019 semester starts Monday, August 26. Still need to register or make changes to your schedule? The deadline for online registration via SAIL was Sunday, August 25. Students can continue to add or late-register for classes in-person at the Student Services Center (better known as the round building) through Tuesday, September 3. For more information, please see our academic calendar.


Tuition for those enrolled for the fall 2019 semester was due Monday, August 19, by 5 p.m. Students receiving financial aid will have their awards automatically applied to their account, with leftover monies being refunded to them.

The University accepts a variety of payment options, and arrangements can be made through the Business Office, located in the Student Services Center (Round Building). Those who fail to make a payment or payment arrangements by the August 19 deadline will be assessed a late payment fee and may be dropped from their classes, so we encourage all students to make necessary arrangements as soon as possible to avoid penalties. For more information on accepted forms of payment, payment plans, emergency loans, and more, please see our Business Office website.

Received a private scholarship? Click the link below for instructions on how to have those funds applied toward your tuition bill for the upcoming semester(s).


Refunds started processing Thursday, August 22 – see the Tentative Refund Schedule link below to determine when you may anticipate receiving your tuition refund. When/how you receive your funds is contingent upon the refund preference you have selected through BankMobile (see BankMobile link below for more info). REMEMBER: All first-year, first-time loan borrowers must wait 30 days before they can receive their funds.
