    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    FROM UT TO TEXAS TECH

    It had the easiest application process, and I met all of the requirements to enter the program. My boyfriend had looked into this program a few months prior, and I had decided this was a good route for me, with have around a 3.5 GPA from both The University of Texas at Austin and Temple College. The process was incredibly simple, and I heard back about my admission within about 2 weeks


    Exams - 

    I only had to submit a resume and transcripts. The GPA requirements were over a 2.7 for the last 60 hours of study, which was what applied to me. There were other stipulations that would explain a lower GPA, such as 5 years of work experience or 30 graduate hours. Even though this was a Masters program, I did not have to submit GRE scores.

    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY

    Texas Tech University offered me in-state tuition plus an accredited program in interior design! Not to mention their recreational opportunities were unparalleled. The campus itself was centrally located, beautiful, and the students were unified in pride.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum was certainly challenging but not unmanageable if time was allotted accordingly. Homework was perpetual, as it was all project-based, but that made my desire to learn even greater.

    Cheaper than most other colleges and they give as much scholarship money as possible. The criminology program and Russian foreign language programs were rated well, and job placement after graduation is great. Smaller classes.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The department is focused on students success and work to help any need. The curriculum is challenging and will help with future success in the workforce. Students are encouraged to move forth with their education and continue to graduate school.
