Complete information about the Texas Tech University Graduate School and their application form can be found from this link. An application fee of $60 for U.S. citizens/immigrant permanent residents and $60 for international students is required.
All Graduate students should download the ETS PPI as a part of the application process.
The ETS PPI web-based evaluation system offers a simple and convenient process to collect and report essential information about your personal attributes to round out your graduate school application. The ETS PPI provides reliable information on six personal attributes that professional and graduate schools have indicated are critical for academic success:
- Knowledge and creativity
- Communication skills
- Planning and organization
- Ethics and integrity
Applicants select evaluators – typically, faculty members or supervisors – to evaluate you on each of these dimensions by responding to 24 statements and providing an overall rating. Evaluators can also include optional comments. Applicants will receive an email when their evaluator has completed the PPI.
