Financial Aid

There are several ways to finance a legal education at Texas Tech Law.  Students use a combination of scholarships, loans, and part-time employment in summer or after their first year.  Texas Tech Law has a full-time financial aid advisor located in the law building to help make your academic journey affordable. 


In awarding scholarships to new students, Texas Tech Law uses the same factors considered in evaluating the applicant for admission.  All admitted students are automatically considered for any scholarship funds for which they are eligible.  Scholarships are also available to students in their second or third year of law school and are awarded on the basis of academic performance an financial need.

Non-Resident Tuition Waiver: Texas allows non-resident students who receive a competitive academic scholarship of at least $1,000 to receive a waiver of non-resident tuition.  Non-resident students who receive such a scholarship will be charged resident tuition, which represents an additional savings of over $10,000 per year.  


All students seeking financial aid other than scholarships must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  This application enables loans available to assist students with their education.  Law students are eligible for several kinds of loans available from the federal government, the most common being Direct Unsubsidized and Direct PLUS loans.
