School Overview

Texas A&M University � Texarkana is one of the newest schools in the Texas A&M University System. Also known as A&M Texarkana, it is located in Texarkana, Texas, USA. With its location, both Oklahoma and Arkansas students attend with in-state tuition rates as well as Louisiana residents of a parish that borders the area. Most of the students are from Texas but historically 30% of the residents have come from Arkansas.

Texas A&M University-Texarkana first became part of East Texas State University (ETSU) in Commerce, Texas in 1971. In 1980, the school received separate accreditation. The Texarkana branch then became a separate institution from ETSU in September 1996 when ETSU became part of the Texas A&M System.
