GPA calculation only if the same course is repeated at the same institution where
it was originally taken.

If you do not meet assured admission requirements but have at least a 2.00 cumulative
GPA, an admissions committee will evaluate your potential based on other criteria:

- Student-submitted essay – explanation of the decision to transfer to Texas Tech, reasons for past academic
performance and plans to ensure future academic success
- Extracurricular activities/employment/Texas Tech affiliation – leadership and work experience, special talents or awards, other information relevant
to the admission decision
Students with a cumulative GPA or transferable credit hours below requirements or
who haven't taken college coursework in the past two or more semesters are encouraged
to explain circumstances that have impacted their past academic performance and to
submit an essay.
Although applications will be accepted beginning August 1, initial decision letters
will be released in mid-September. Decisions beyond this time usually take 2-4 weeks.
