Students with documented evidence of a Learning Disability or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders are welcome to apply to the TECHniques Center. To be eligible to apply to the TECHniques Center, you must first complete the steps to register with the main Student Disability Services office:
Admission to TTU
Potential students need to apply and be accepted to Texas Tech University through the Office of Admissions and School Relations. Applicants desiring special consideration should indicate so. Applicants who do not meet the standard admissions requirements may want to attend a community college and transfer into Texas Tech University.
Accommodations from Student Disability Services
In order to request reasonable academic accommodations, students must complete an application with Student Disability Services and return it along with the documentation for the disability. Students needing only classroom accommodations and assistive technology support should only complete the first two pages. Eligible students wishing to participate in the TECHniques Center must also complete the supplemental page. View documentation guidelines.
Completed applications and documentation should be directed to Student Disability Services, 335 West Hall, Box 45007 Lubbock, Texas 79409-5007.
Once approved, the student will meet with an academic counselor in the main office for an intake interview, during which approved classroom accommodations will be reviewed and explained.
