About Us

Mission Statement

University Advising partners with students, parents, and the community to facilitate autonomy, foster independence, and develop opportunities to engage in and refine the academic advising experience.

The three key ways we will partner with you for success at Texas Tech.


Texas Tech University Advising (TTUA) engages students on multiple levels within several of our programs:


eXplore is advising to investigate and confirm your major. Through a deliberate study of yourself and one-to-one meetings with an advisor, you can narrow the range of major alternatives to confidently pursue your educational and career goals.

Pre-Professional Health Careers (PPHC) is the advising home for pre-professional health designations. After 45 earned hours, we help you move into the degree-granting major that will take you where you want to go.


Academic Recovery

Through the Academic Recovery program, the University Advising Academic Advisors assist students who have found themselves on Academic Suspension and Academic Dismissal. Our academic advisors can guide you through the process of reapplying to the university as a Texas Tech University Undeclared (TTUD) student, creating a plan for academic success, exploring academic and career options, and progressing toward graduation.

Tech Transfer Acceleration Program (TTAP) is an alternative admissions program that expands the availability of the Red Raider experience to students who have been denied admission into Texas Tech University. TTAP students enroll concurrently at Texas Tech University and South Plains College.


Visiting/ Transient Students

Texas Tech recognizes that not all students want to enroll full-time. Visiting, also known as Transient Students, just want to take a few classes here and there. These are undergraduate applicants who want to attend Texas Tech University on a temporary basis (such as summer sessions), perhaps working on prerequisites while applying for professional schools, and who are not seeking a degree can engage with Texas Tech as visiting students.

In summary, TTUA facilitates growth, development, and persistence for all students at Texas Tech.
