How They Are Disbursed
Scholarships are applied to your tuition bill each semester. The University must confirm that you have been accepted and have enrolled before payment will be made.
If your scholarship arrives after your bill is already paid for the semester, or if the scholarship is more than your bill, a refund check will be issued to you. You can expect your refund to be mailed to your local address. You may receive refunds through direct deposit (recommended) by completing a direct deposit form at student business services.
If, you receive the scholarship in cash and you are receiving any other type of financial aid, you are obligated to notify us. We may be required to adjust your financial aid package. However, please note that we do not reduce the total amount of aid you are eligible to receive; we only adjust the type of aid. First, we will reduce any loans you may have been offered.
Occasionally, a donor will send the scholarship check directly to you. Do not include the check with your payments to the Student Business Services Office. Instead, forward the scholarship check to the Scholarship Office, Box 45011 Lubbock, TX 79409 -5011, and it will be processed accordingly (endorse checks made payable to you or both you and TTU before forwarding). Also, please provide your student ID number with your check to expedite processing.
