The Texas Tech Commitment for our most valuable asset…you.

We know that students are anxious to return to the classroom and to be back among their friends and classmates. For first-year students, going to college, meeting new friends, and starting a new chapter in your life probably has you both very excited and a little bit nervous all at the same time. Your dream of earning a college degree is in front of you and Texas Tech looks forward to having you on our campus this fall so that you can pursue your passions. We also pledge our Texas Tech Commitment which means we will do everything that we can to provide a safe and fun learning environment. When you arrive on campus this fall, you will find enhanced sanitization efforts, resources for health screenings, access to personal protective equipment, workplace and classroom wellness guidance, and social distancing protocols. All designed to protect you and those you love.
