The Texas A&M Graduate & Professional School (GPS, formerly known as OGAPS) provides a comprehensive list of forms and information regarding processes that are standardized at the university level.

All documents submitted to the GPS are routed electronically through one of two systems, the DPSS Portal or DocuSign.
