Tech Transfer Acceleration Program
The Tech Transfer Acceleration Program is an alternative admissions program designed for those students denied admissions to Texas Tech University.This unique partnership between Texas Tech and South Plains College allows students to live and take classes on the Texas Tech campus. TTAP expands the availability of the Red Raider experience to students who have been denied admission into TTU. Participants co-enroll at Texas Tech University and South Plains College for their first semester.Upon completion of the program, students are then automatically transferred into Texas Tech University.
TTAP is great for students who may not have been strong academically in high school and could benefit from more direct attention and smaller class sizes. TTAP is designed to support a student's academic, personal, and social well being. TTAP is a rigorous program, but provides a structured environment designed to develop skills characteristic of successful students.
