|Law School Admission Test (LSAT) information
Applicants must have a valid LSAT score in order to be considered, although applicants may submit their applications before they have received their LSAT score. For example, a December test taker may submit their application in December before they have received their score. Additionally, applicants must use several other LSAC services during the application process, such as the Credential Assembly Service.
|Application Instructions [Online Application]
The Admissions Committee will not review an application until it is complete. When the Admissions Committee reaches a decision on your file, you will be notified promptly.
|Track the status of your application
Texas Tech University School of Law will send you an email to acknowledge receipt of your electronic application. This email will also contain information that you will need to check your application status online. It is important that you retain this information because federal law prevents us from releasing information about admission status or decisions by telephone or fax. You will also receive an email when your application file is complete and ready to be submitted for consideration.
|Accept offer of Admission
Each accepted applicant is required to pay a deposit soon after being accepted to hold a place in the entering class. Accepted students may pay their deposit online here or by mailing a check or money order made out to "Texas Tech University" to the law school admissions office.
|Apply for Financial Aid
Scholarships: There is no additional application for scholarships. All scholarships are merit-based, but merit is defined broadly to include non-academic factors such as work experience, leadership experience, and history of overcoming adversity.
Grants & Loans: Grants and loans are awarded and administered by the central Texas Tech University financial aid office. You must complete your FAFSA in order to receive grant or loan aid.
|File a Declaration of Intent to Study Law
The State Bar of Texas requires that all first-year students intending to take the Texas Bar Examination must file a Declaration of Intent to Study Law by October 1 for students who enter in August.
