University description (as per official university website)

History

Texas Tech University was created by legislative action in 1923 and has the distinction of being the largest comprehensive higher education institution in the western two-thirds of the state of Texas. The university is the major institution of higher education in a region larger than 46 of the nationís 50 states and is the only campus in Texas that is home to a major university, law school and medical school.

Originally named Texas Technological College, the college opened in 1925 with six buildings and an enrollment of 914. Graduate instruction did not begin until 1927 within the school of Liberal Arts. A "Division of Graduate Studies" was established in 1935 and eventually became known as the Graduate School in 1954.

By action of the Texas State Legislature, Texas Technological College formally became Texas Tech University on September 1, 1969. At that time the schools of Agricultural Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Home Economics also became known as "colleges." Architecture became a college in 1986. Two colleges changed their names in 1993 to reflect the broadening fields each serves: the College of Agricultural Sciences became the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the College of Home Economics became the College of Human Sciences. The Honors College was established in 1998, and the College of Visual and Performing Arts opened in 2002. Mass Communications became a college in 2004.

The Texas State Legislature authorized funds in 1965 for establishing the Texas Tech University School of Law, and the Law Schoolís first dean was appointed in 1966. The first class of 72 students enrolled in 1967. The Law School was approved by the American Bar Association in 1970 and is fully accredited by the Supreme Court of Texas (1968) and the Association of American Law Schools (1969).

As a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Texas Tech began competing in the Big 12 Conference in 1996 after a 35-year membership in the former Southwest Conference.

Financial Aid


Financial Aid for Spring 2010 may be viewed on MyTech by selecting the Award Overview option under the Financial Aid Information tab. Financial Aid will not appear on the Spring 2010 E-bill. If a studentís total financial aid award is enough to cover 100% of the tuition and fee amount, they will not need to make a payment or set up a payment plan, and their class schedule will not be cancelled on January 12. If the total financial aid amount does not cover the amount of the tuition and fees, the student should set up a payment plan or make payment for the remaining balance. Students who have not completed the loan process to finalize or decline their 2010 Stafford loan award, may do so now on Loans by Web. Funds that are fully accepted are scheduled to begin applying to studentís accounts on January 4, 2010.
