Fall 2020 at Texas A&M at Qatar

Fall 2020 classes begin 23 August 2020. Texas A&M at Qatar will offer its full fall 2020 course schedule. All admitted and continuing students are eligible to complete courses. All continuing students have been pre-enrolled in their required courses. Newly admitted students will be registered for courses during Aggie Life 101 (new student orientation), the week before classes begin. Course change requests will be completed during the add/drop period (first five days of classes).

The fall 2020 class schedule will change. Your current class times are not final. You will remain enrolled in your courses but the days and times will change. To accommodate social distancing and limited face-to-face classes, the entire fall 2020 schedule is being reorganized. Your schedules will be finalized by mid-August. Check you HOWDY account for updates.
