The TECHniques Center charges a fee above the university tuition and fees. This covers the expense of tutoring, support services, and resources for student participants. Fees are included each semester on a student's university bill and should be included in their statement of financial need.
Students in their first year at Texas Tech must participate in the TECHniques Center's standard or expanded services.
The TECHniques Center hires tutors in anticipation of student needs and must honor our commitment to our student employees even when a student withdraws from the program. All students will be charged a non-refundable deposit of $150 for each fall/spring term and $50 for each summer term. The deposit reserves the student's spot in the program and is credited toward the program fee.
The full program fee will be posted to the student's account within two weeks of the TECHniques Center receipt of the student's signed Statement of Understanding. Should a student withdraw from the program, voluntarily or involuntarily, he/she will be refunded an amount according to posted deadlines and minus the deposit amount. Refer to Student Business Services for payment deadlines and/or to set up a payment plan.
