TTU & ASU Promote Summer Enrollment

May 14, 2018 | Texas Tech University & Angelo State University

Texas Tech University is looking to increase summer 2018 enrollment numbers using a sustainable, long-term plan for enhanced summer curricula with online and on-campus participation.

The strategies that will be implemented immediately include a new website which will highlight summer school offerings from Texas Tech, show the benefits of summer attendance and help explain various incentive programs.

Several scholarships and grants also will be implemented through this strategy. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Office of Financial Aid are creating two new scholarships aimed at students coming to Texas Tech for the first time.

Angelo State University is launching several new initiatives for the upcoming summer 2018 semesters, as well as continuing its popular Free Summer Housing program, to give more current students and incoming freshmen the opportunity to accelerate on the road toward graduation.

The Free Summer Housing program allows students enrolled in at least two courses (six credit hours) or a four-credit science lab course during each of the two summer terms to live in ASU campus housing for free, as long as they maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average. Since the program was introduced in 2013, the number of students living in the residence halls during the summer has steadily increased from 267 the prior year to 709 in 2017. Overall summer enrollment has also increased from 2,551 in 2013 to 3,217 last year.
