Financial Aid
The Office of Student Financial Aid strives to meet student need by finding the best combination of aid including federal, state, institutional and other dollars. Visit the Office of Financial Aid web site for more information.

The U.S. government designed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to help colleges nationwide establish a student's need for financial assistance. However, the FAFSA also is widely used to determine a student's eligibility for certain scholarships and grants. If you plan to attend Texas Tech, complete the FAFSA online as soon as possible after Jan. 1 to apply for need-based financial aid for the following academic year.
