Compared to most schools of comparable size and quality, Texas Tech University offers a reasonable tuition rate and great scholarship packages for high achieving students. However, there is not a great deal of opportunity for current students to increase their scholarship packages. Some scholarships can be renewed on an annual basis. Departmental scholarships, however, are usually not renewable, are highly competitive, and are typically around $1,000.
Nevertheless, Texas Tech is a remarkably good deal. Not only do tuition and fees provide access to an excellent education, but they also provide access to services and amenities including the campus Recreations Center, free legal services, health services, and a massive library.
