MBA FYI | Evening Graduate Students

Welcome Incoming Students!

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon! Between now and then, we have a number of activities scheduled to help you in your transition to TCU, plus social events so you can meet your classmates. More information is provided below and will be updated as we approach the beginning of the school year.

 

Evening Class Reps 2017 Welcome from the Evening Program Class Representatives

These students are selected by their peers to work closely with school administration and faculty on issues of interest to the evening graduate students.
Currently serving as evening program class representatives:

Shawn Hullet, Professional MBA; Ashley O’Connor, Energy MBA-Accelerated; Chris Brawley, Professional MBA-Accelerated; Ryan Humm, MS-SCM; Michael Szczachor, Energy MBA; Pete McElvain, Energy MBA

 

Your Next Steps:

Create your my.TCU.edu account

Create Your TCU Account on MY.TCU.EDU

The TCU portal will be your primary access to TCU information throughout your experience at TCU. You will use the my.tcu.edu to access class registration, your student account, financial aid, grades and much more.

Step 1: Create a MY.TCU.EDU Account. Returning TCU students can use the same user name and password.
Step 2: Set up your Password Self-Help for 24/7 access to reset your password.

Submit Your Official Transcripts

The transcripts you uploaded to your application are considered unofficial copies. Now that you have been admitted, official transcripts from all previously attended universities must be provided. Check due date in the "Key Dates" section below. You can check your application portal to see which transcripts have been received.  

> Which transcripts are needed? Transcripts should be sent to TCU directly from all previously attended universities at which you earned undergraduate or graduate level credit. The transcripts must come directly from the university, unless copies you may already have remained sealed. We need official transcripts from all universities, including those for transfer credit unless the degree-issuing university lists all transfer courses by course name and posts a specific grade for each transfer course. If you previously attended TCU, it is not necessary to order a TCU transcript or transcripts for transfer work already accepted by TCU.

> Where do I send the official transcripts? Have your university send transcripts via mail or email to:
