Scholarships for International Transfer Students

  • Transfer students with 60 earned credit hours and a 3.5 GPA from a U.S. community college automatically qualify for the Proven Achievers Scholarship.
  • Students awarded a Proven Achievers Scholarship qualify to pay tuition at the Resident rate. The scholarship reduces the Resident tuition by the scholarship amount. For example, a student receiving a $2,500/year scholarship will pay $8,272 ($10,772-$2,500) in tuition/fees for the 9-month academic year in 2017-18.

Community College & Transfer Relations Office

CCTR is the Office of Community College & Transfer Relations. We are the Texas Tech academic advisors for students who want to transfer to our institution. Our office is here to help you by answering your questions, telling you what courses will transfer, showing you how those courses apply to a TTU degree, and advising you for courses to take next semester.

How to transfer credits? Transfer Evaluation Office (TEO)

The Transfer Evaluation Office (TEO) determines acceptable transfer credit on the basis of an evaluation of course content as described by information provided by the sending institution, typically done in the form of a catalog, course syllabi, or course prospectus. The appropriate academic units at Texas Tech University may be consulted as necessary for clarification of submitted documentation.

All college-level, non-vocational courses completed with a passing grade of D or above at regionally accredited colleges and universities (not including trade or technical schools) will be evaluated for acceptance of transfer credit. However, evaluation of course credit earned at other institutions by the TEO does not decree approval of the credit for use toward degree requirements.

Only the academic dean of the college offering the program in which a student is enrolled has the authority to determine which courses will be applied toward any specific program. The only exception to this rule is that no transferred course completed with a grade below C- may be applied to fulfill course requirements in majors, minors, or specializations.

Students from international institutions are highly encouraged to submit their catalog, course syllabi, or course prospectus to the TEO well in advance of their matriculation. If these documents are not available in English, official translations must be submitted before a transfer credit evaluation can commence.
