Contact your program coordinator
Once you’re admitted, you’ll need to talk with your program coordinator to outline your degree plan. Unsure of who your program coordinator is? Visit the Graduate Program Coordinator page on the Office of Research and Graduate Studies website for contact information.
Inquire about graduate assistantships
You may have already looked into federal and state financial aid options. A graduate assistantship is another opportunity to fund your education. These assistantships are awarded by departments to carefully selected students. Learn more about graduate assistantships, and contact your program coordinator for additional information.
Register for classes
After speaking with your program coordinator, review the schedule of classes and register for classes through mySFA by selecting the “Registration” tab. Registration tutorials can be found on the Office of the Registrar's webpage and in mySFA.
Check financial aid status
If you have applied for federal financial aid and have submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, and any required documents, you can check your financial aid status and accept awards through mySFA.

For assistance with eBill, contact the Business Office at 936.468.6960 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few friendly “To-Do” reminders...
- If you haven’t already done so, request that the university that conferred your bachelor’s degree send your final, official transcript by email to the SFA Office of Research and Graduate Studies at email@example.com.
- All students under the age of 22 are required to submit proof of meningitis vaccination at least 10 days prior to the first class day or 10 days prior to move-in date if living on campus. Documentation should be sent to the SFA Office of Admissions.
- Students taking 100% of their courses online are exempt from this requirement, but if you choose to take a class on campus, you will be required to submit evidence of receiving the meningitis vaccination prior to registering.
