Request for admission is no longer an option for students looking to transfer to Texas Tech University.
The university announced Tuesday that the transfer application process is no more, and that students will no longer be allowed to apply to Texas State University or the University of Texas.
“This decision is based on the university’s ongoing efforts to enhance and improve student access to our campus and our student community,” Texas Tech President and CEO David L. Boren wrote in a statement.
“Texas Tech is committed to providing a welcoming, inclusive environment for all.
While we are grateful to our community for their continued support and commitment, this change was made to ensure we are a better place for our students.”
Texas Tech has been one of the most popular destinations for transfer applicants in recent years.
A total of 10,000 applicants applied for admission this year, according to the school’s website.
Students who want to transfer from Texas Tech can apply online or via phone, and they are eligible to transfer into other institutions at Texas Tech.
Texas Tech also has a wide range of undergraduate majors, from mathematics to business and social sciences.
Texas Tech has about 8,000 undergraduate majors in the United States and nearly 4,000 in Canada.
