We are NOT Texas Tech University. The school code for TTUHSC must be listed on your FAFSA in order for our office to receive your data.
Once our office receives FAFSA data, you will be contacted by our office via email with information on your financial aid awards/eligibility/missing documentation. You will receive your financial aid award notification via your TTUHSC email account once you have a completed file with our office.
The email you will receive will direct you to the Web Raider portal site, http://webraider.ttuhsc.edu, where you will be able to view and accept your financial aid offer online.
Any grant or scholarship awarded to you do not require you to take action to accept the award online. Our office assumes you want the “free money” so these awards are automatically accepted for you.
There is no deadline to accept any student loan offer made to you.
There are additional requirements necessary if you decide to accept a loan offer. The Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note (MPN) requirements must be completed online at www.studentloans.gov. Information on these requirements are found when you access your financial aid information online.
Once all requirements have been completed for your financial aid, your awards will be disbursed 10 days prior to the first day of class (according to the school calendar) to cover your tuition and fee costs for you.
All students will receive a bill from Student Business Services requesting payment by dates set by their office once students have registered for classes. This date is normally before the scheduled disbursement date of financial aid. Those on financial aid do not have to pay by this date, as your financial aid awards will be disbursed 10 days prior to the first day of class to cover these expenses for you (assuming you have completed all requirements necessary for your financial aid).
Refunds for any financial aid left over after your tuition and fee bill has been paid in full are processed by Student Business Services 2-3 business days after your financial aid has disbursed either by direct deposit or by paper check (mail).
The estimated cost of attendance includes the following:
Housing/Food Loan Fees
Example: Undergrad Nursing (12 month)Graduate Nursing (12 month)
Estimated total budget $32,362 Estimated total budget $36,890
The cost of attendance figures are estimated based on the program you will enter for 2012-2013. Financial aid must be able to provide assistance for any educated related expense you may incur by attending our institution. This does not mean you will be offered financial aid up to the figures listed in your financial aid budget. However, it does mean our office can not exceed the financial aid budget in producing a financial aid package for you.

A candidate for this program may be a graduating high school student or a college student (see eligibility below for GPA requirements).
Nominees must be a Texas resident, nominated by an organization in a rural county of Texas and attend a college or university in Texas.http://www.tdra.state.tx.us/TxDRA/programs/sorh/Grants/ORSProgram.aspx

Private student loans are credit based loans students may apply for through a lender of their choice, either on their own or with a credit worthy co-signer. As a general rule, students should only consider obtaining a private education loan if they have maxed out the Federal Stafford Loan. They should also file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which may qualify them for grants or other forms of student aid. Undergraduate students should also compare costs with the Federal PLUS Loan, as the PLUS loan is usually much less expensive and has better repayment terms.

Sallie Mae: www.salliemae.com
Short Term Emergency Loans for Tuition and/or Books and Supplies are available through the financial aid office.
