Transfer Students

The Department of Geosciences welcomes students who transfer from other institutions.  If you plan on transferring to Texas Tech University there are a few important points to consider

  • Application is online at the Registrar website. Alternatively, you may use ApplyTexas for transfer students
  • Transfer students should apply for scholarships within the ApplyTexas application to be considered for transfer student scholarships.
