TAMIU Launches New ‘Closer Than Ever’ Initiative


Closer Than You Think Logo

They’re out there…students who have been unable to complete their undergraduate degree but have made substantial progress.  Perhaps life became busy, new obligations emerged, or priorities shifted.

Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) is launching a new initiative this Fall to help former students complete their undergraduate degree.  Dubbed the “Closer than Ever” Initiative, TAMIU is reaching out to engage with former students and help them conclude their degree journey. 

“Some of our former students are actually mere hours, or a handful of classes away from securing their Bachelor’s degree.  With accessible and flexible programs and online options, these students are closer than ever before to degree completion,” said TAMIU registrar Juan Gilberto García, Jr. 

García said the University will be reaching out to former students in the weeks ahead through social media and direct, targeted outreach to encourage them to renew ties with the University and establish next steps. 

“We have a simple online form that will enable us to collect some basic information to retrieve the student’s academic history, establish contact and discuss options that can be tailored to them. There is also the possibility of limited financial assistance,” García explained.

 Interested students can take their first steps forward to completing their degree by visiting a dedicated TAMIU website, located at:

“We encourage our former students to explore the new options available to them,” García concluded, “there’s no time like the present, and they really are closer than they think.”

Fall 2018 classes at TAMIU begin Tuesday, Aug. 28.

Fall registration information is available from the  TAMIU Office of the Registrar at 956.326.2250, by email at, or by visiting offices in the Senator Judith Zaffirini Student Success Center, 121.

Additional resources are shared on the University’s social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
