The NCAA permits you to receive financial aid from anyone upon whom you are naturally or legally dependent. You
may also receive financial aid from other sources up to the cost of a full grant-in-aid (tuition & fees, room, board, books)
or in certain situations, up to the Office of Student Financial Aid's cost of attendance for the academic year.
As a student-athlete you are required to disclose all outside (non-university) awards and financial assistance that you
have already received or will receive for your education at Texas Tech University. For NCAA compliance purposes, all such aid
must be reviewed in order to determine if it will affect your individual eligibility and/or the grant-in-aid total for your sport.
Every year, you must supply detailed information about these awards to Shannon Crossland in the Office of Student Financial Aid.
Almost all institutional awards are processed through the Financial Aid Office in order for the proceeds to be applied to
the student's account with Student Business Services. If you are a recipient of an award, and proceeds are given to you from
a source other than Student Business Services, please notify Shannon Crossland in the Office of Student Financial Aid.
In some cases, the financial aid office may need to reduce your aid to avoid exceeding institutional aid limits and/or limits
set by the NCAA. These reductions could occur at anytime during the academic year. Refer to the Financial Aid section of your
Student Handbook for further details. Please note that Shannon Crossland is your contact in the Office of Student Financial Aid.
Please do not hesitate to contact her with questions at 742-3487 ext. 227, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Federal/State Financial Aid Process
In most cases, student-athletes may be eligible for financial aid in addition to their athletic scholarships. To be eligible
for federal and state aid (including Pell grants and student loans), the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must
be completed each year. Students may complete a FAFSA for the next academic year as early as January 1st. The Office of Student
Financial Aid recommends that all students complete the FAFSA as soon as possible. Student-athletes that are eligible for Pell
grants or student loans will be eligible to receive these funds in addition to full grant-in-aid up to the cost of education as
determined by the Office of Student Financial Aid. Summer is the last semester of the award year. The FAFSA information from the
previous fall and spring semesters will be used for summer. The Financial Aid Office also requires that a separate institutional
summer application be completed on-line at the Financial Aid website: www.financialaid.ttu.edu.
