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.
