International Agreements

Texas A&M University's (TAMU) international agreements include one or all of the following:

  • Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)
  • Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)
  • Justification Statement
  • Reciprocal Educational Exchange Program (REEP)
  • MOU/MOA Amendment for an Extension

For all agreement templates, visit the Forms page.

Many foreign institutions and grant programs need an MOA or MOU for a formal relationship. The most efficient way to develop an international agreement and initiate the approval process is to work with your college international agreements representative to avoid delays.

An agreement that involves students must be carefully considered and described in detail in a MOA. The MOA must be specific about activities and expectations relative to the agreement objectives, as well as the student objectives, e.g., degree programs, undergraduate/graduate status, reciprocal exchange, collaborative research, immigration status, State Department status of the country involved, financial responsibility, etc.
