Transfer Student Admissions

The Department of Geosciences welcomes students who transfer from other institutions.  If you plan on transferring to Texas Tech University there are a few important points to consider

  • Application is online at the Registrar website. Alternatively, you may use ApplyTexas for transfer students- button
  • Transfer students should apply for scholarships within the ApplyTexas application to be considered for transfer student scholarships.
  • Transfer students entering the Department of Geosciences get off to a fast start if they have taken college-level Chemistry and Calculus early, as these courses are prerequisites for sophomore-level geoscience courses.
  • Transfer credits are evaluated by the TTU Transfer Evaluation Office upon receipt of transcripts. However the TTU Registrar provides a transfer evaluation tool to help students plan for transferring into Texas Tech.  This is a great tool to stay on track when completing courses at another institution. 
  • Students in the College of Arts and Sciences are allowed to transfer up to 66 hours from junior colleges. 

Please contact the department advisor for more information.
