Tuition, Scholarships, and Financial Aid
Doctor of Pharmacy Program
Tuition and fees will be established each year by the Board of Regents. In addition to tuition, students are responsible for their books, supplies, travel and personal expenses associated with completing their clinical experiences. A laptop computer, compatible with the School's system is required. Contact the Office of Student Services to receive the specifications.
A $100 application fee must be submitted with the application for admission. The application fee is non-refundable. Applications will not be processed without this fee. The fee is waived for TTUHSC employees on at least a 9 month appointment, their spouses and dependent children under age 25.
Note: You do not have to apply to Texas Tech University in addition to applying to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy.
Upon acceptance of an offer of admission, the student submits a $100 non-refundable placement guarantee fee.
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center believes the primary responsibility for financing education lies first with the student and his/her family. When the total resources they can provide do not meet expenses, it is the objective of the financial aid program at TTUHSC to provide financial assistance to students who, without such assistance, would not be able to pursue advanced education.
Financial Aid at TTUHSC comes from many sources. Although qualifications for each funding program might differ, no student shall be excluded from participating in or be denied the benefits of any financial aid program on the basis of age, sex, race, color, religion, national origin, or disability.
Step By Step
Scholarships are funded by sources within and outside of the University. Awards distributed through the School of Pharmacy are based upon academic achievement, leadership, extra-curricular activities, and financial need. Scholarship recipients are selected by the School of Pharmacy Faculty Scholarship Committee, a subcommittee of the Student Affairs Committee. Award decisions are made in the summer for the following academic year. To be considered for scholarships which include “financial need” in their criteria, applicants must submit a Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) by May 15th. (See: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/)
Currently enrolled students with at least an 80 cumulative GPA and entering students with a minimum 3.00 GPA (GPA calculated using only required pre pharmacy course grades) are eligible. Entering students' transcripts must be on file with the Student Services Office by June 1st.
The School of Pharmacy awards numerous scholarships.
