Texas Tech University is continuing their test-optional admission policy for students applying for admission beginning in Fall 2022.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple students were unable to take standardized tests because of the unavailability or cancellation of testing. These scores would typically be used for admission, but this new policy allows students an option to apply without consideration of SAT or ACT scores.

When applying, students will share their plans regarding the submission or consideration of SAT or ACT as part of their application. All students are welcome to submit additional materials they feel could best highlight their skills, talents and contributions to Texas Tech. These include, but are not limited to, essays, letters of recommendation and resumes.

This test-optional policy is open for both students who weren't able to sit for their scheduled testing dates and those who simply do not wish to share their scores. Students that do end up selecting this option will have their application evaluated in a holistic manner.

Jason Hale, executive director of Undergraduate Admission, said:

We understand that students have faced many challenges over the past year including the unavailability of exam opportunities [...] At Texas Tech, we want to be known for providing access and opportunity to all students, and we’re happy to continue this policy through 2022.
