Importance of the email address you supply
The email address you provide when creating your Merlin username is the primary email address for your application. It is used to communicate important information to you during the application process. Also, you will not be able to look up your Merlin username or password if this email address is not valid. Please set your primary email address to an address that you will have access to for at least one year. Do not set your primary email address to an address that will become unavailable to you because of graduation, etc.
For those applicants who have been required to complete other applications as part of the application process (i.e., TMDSAS, CASPA), please use the email address you used for those applications as your primary email address in Merlin.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are currently affiliated with Texas Tech and have an active eRaider username, it is not necessary to create a Merlin username. Please use your eRaider username and password to login to Merlin. The email address associated with your eRaider account will be used to communicate important information to you during the application process.
