A Message Regarding Financial Aid & Scholarship:

All Texas Tech students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) so they can be made aware of their resources. Often, we hear from students that they do not believe the FAFSA can be completed after the term has begun --- the good news is you can absolutely still complete the FAFSA and use those resources for current educational expenses (i.e. tuition/fees/books/room/board/travel, etc.).

For questions or more information, please contact our Financial Aid & Scholarship Office:

Performance Update 

Theatre:

Due to COVID-19, the final two shows of the 2019-20 season: RROAPS/RRADS and GUYS AND DOLLS are canceled. 

We remain hopeful that both WildWind Performance Lab this June and the Marfa Intensive this July/August will proceed as planned. 

Art:

GALLERIES CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
With classes migrating to online-teaching and non-essential staff instructed to work from home, the School of Art galleries will be closed until further notice.
To continue to promote the exhibitions, and to allow students and community to engage with the artworks on display, we are striving to augment the online presence of these exhibitions by adding information about the artists, video walk-throughs of the exhibitions, and image stills of individual artworks. We have added links to PDFs of brochures of the current exhibitions and will be adding additional materials for each of the exhibits this week. Click on the links below to learn more about each of the exhibitions.
