The Texas Education Code (TEC, §51.352(d)(4)) and Section 5.02.1 of the Rules and Regulations of the Texas Tech University (TTU) System Board of Regents (BOR) establish the roles and responsibilities of the BOR "to set campus admission standards consistent with the role and mission of the institution." In turn, the BOR requires component institutions of the TTU System to publish admissions policies. TTUHSC El Paso publishes a general admissions policy (HSCEP OP 77.01, Asmission) in accordance with these requirements.

TTUHSC El Paso is an upper-level, graduate, and professional study institution. The application and admissions policies for each of TTUHSC El Paso’s schools are outlined in the current school catalogs.

TTUHSC El Paso programs have deadlines for the submission of applications and supporting documents. Since deadlines vary by program and application year, applicants are advised to contact the program’s admissions personnel for specific deadline information.
