Undergraduate students who have attended another accredited college may be accepted for admission to Texas Tech provided they meet certain requirements.
Students are encouraged to apply by the priority deadlines listed below. Students must present official transcripts of their entire academic record from all institutions in which they have been or are currently enrolled. (Official transcripts must be sent directly to the Admissions Office and have the signature of the proper college official and the college seal. Transcripts marked "student copy" are not acceptable.) Transfer students must also provide a high school transcript for use in advisement and placement.
Transfer applicants may be admitted to the university in one of the following ways:
- Transfer of 24 or more hours from an accredited institution with a minimum 2.25 GPA and eligibility to return to the institution most recently attended. (Due to the high volume of applications, transfer students choosing the Rawls College of Business Administration must have a cumulative 2.75 GPA. Students choosing the College of Architecture must have a cumulative 3.0 GPA. Students choosing the Interior Design program must have a cumulative 3.0 GPA. Students choosing Human Development and Family Studies must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA.)
- Transfer of 12 to 23 hours including at least 12 hours of required basic courses from an accredited institution with a minimum 2.50 GPA.
- If transferring with fewer than 12 hours, meet the same standards for admission as required of new freshmen entering from high school and have a minimum 2.00 cumulative GPA in work completed in addition to eligibility to return to the institution most recently attended.
Note: The student's major, types of courses taken, and pattern of progress, as well as high school records and standardized test scores are considered in the admissions process. Students transferring 24 or more hours from an accredited institution with a cumulative GPA of 2.00-2.24 will be reviewed, as will those with 12-23 hours and a 2.00-2.49 GPA.
Texas Tech accepts the State of Texas Common Application for Admission to Public Universities. Students may submit an application electronically or on paper. Essays are not required.
Requests for applications and questions concerning admission should be directed to the Office of Admissions, Box 45005, Lubbock, Texas 79409, telephone (806) 742-1480.
Priority Admissions Deadlines
The deadline for summer and fall admission is May 1, but the Admissions Office recommends that applications be on file by February 1 for summer and fall admission; November 15 for spring admission. Falsification or omission of application information will void admission to Texas Tech University.
Applicants may be considered for admission to the undergraduate divisions of the university by graduation from an accredited high school, by transfer from an accredited college, or by entrance examination. The completed application, test scores, and other applicable qualifying factors constitute the basis upon which eligibility is considered. Students who meet the stated requirements may reasonably expect to be admitted. Additional factors may be considered in determining the applicant's eligibility for admission.
Students are admitted to a specific college within the university. The university reserves the right to modify its admission requirements in order to manage enrollment in high-demand areas. The colleges may set various requirements for continuance in certain degree programs in addition to the general university minimum requirements.
