University description (as per official university website)

History of Texas A&M University at Galveston

In the late 1950s by two Galveston marine biologists, Dr. Albert Collier and Dr. Sammy Ray pioneered the Galveston Marine Laboratory, conducting scientific research in oceanography and marine biology at the former Army barracks of Fort Crockett.

In 1958, at a Maritime Day Celebration at the Galvez Hotel, the guest speaker, Admiral Ford from the federal Maritime Administration, noted that one of the responsibilities of the Maritime Administration was to oversee the operation of the nationís five state maritime academies. During the question and answer session the possibility of establishing a maritime academy in Galveston was raised. Admiral Fordís positive response prompted the Galveston Chamber of Commerce to form a steering committee to pursue a local academy. This led Rear Admiral Sherman Wetmore, of the U.S. Naval Reserve, and other interested Galvestonians to petition the Texas Legislature to appropriate monies to establish the Texas Maritime Academy.

The Galveston Marine Laboratory and the Texas Maritime Academy provided the foundation for Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG).

The Academy began operation as part of The Texas A&M University System in 1962. Several hundred people attended the 1964 dedication of Fort Crockett as the campus of the Texas Maritime Academy.

Financial Aid

You will first need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at
( Be sure to add Texas A&M University at Galveston's school code 003632 (when entering this number on your form, the school name that appears will be Texas A&M University in College Station, TX). We encourage students to submit the FAFSA to the federal processor as early as possible since Texas A&M University at Galveston awards financial aid on a first come first serve basis. Students may wish to check with other institutions they are considering, to see if they have priority dates or deadlines for the FAFSA. It normally takes 2-4 weeks for the online application to be processed, and 4-8 weeks for the paper application to be processed. We strongly recommend students to utilize the online application. After we receive the electronic results from the federal processor, we will then send you a request for any additional documentation we may need. Typically, the FAFSA for the upcoming academic year is available in the January prior. It is recommended that the Federal Income Tax forms for the previous year are completed before sitting down to complete the FAFSA. Our priority deadline is March 1st.

Students do not have to be admitted to TAMUG in order to file the FAFSA. However, a financial aid offer will not be made until you have been fully admitted. Students do not have to be admitted to any institution before applying for financial aid.
