Overview of Financial Aid Process


Applying for Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) constitutes the basic financial aid application and is required if you wish to be considered for all federal, state or university financial aid and scholarships. The FAFSA must be submitted once per year and each new aid year at TTUHSC starts in the summer. 

Please note the following information when submitting your FAFSA:

Texas Tech University is a separate institution from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. If your plans include transferring from TTU to TTUHSC, you will need to complete the TTUHSC financial aid process.

The TTUHSC federal school code is 016024.

Students are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to enter tax information.

Verification & Missing Information

Once you have submitted the FAFSA, your Student Aid Report (SAR) will indicate if additional supporting documents may be required for verification, and these documents will vary for each student.

Even if the student is not selected for verification, additional information may be requested to complete the student's file. All students will be asked to complete the Expected Enrollment Questionnaire.

All requests for additional documents or information will be sent to the student's TTUHSC email account. To view and complete any additional documents or information, please follow these instructions.

  1. Login to Web Raider and select the HSC MyTECH tab.
  2. Scroll to the Manage My Finances section and select "Documentation Requested and Submitted".
  3. Select "Student Requirements".
  4. Select the appropriate aid year from the drop down menu and click "Submit".
  5. Complete items listed in a "required" status.

**Please include the student's student ID (R#) at the top of all documents you submit to our office. The forms and data should all be legible and must be received by the deadline specified when the request was made. If citizenship documentation is required, be sure to read the instructions provided through Web Raider. If you have not been assigned an eRaider ID, login to Merlin to review the documents that are required. Failure to submit all required documents and information could result in a delay of financial funding.
