College Connect

(Formerly: Office of K-12 & IDEAL) 



College Connect believes the pursuit of higher education should be accessible to all students. Our goal is to provide the K-12 community with access points into higher education through programming and scholarship. We support the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion's mission in promoting student diversity by exposing K-12 students to diverse cultural, economic, social, and academic backgrounds. Our students learn how to actively listen, communicate, and respect others; developing into upstanding leaders in their communities.

College Connect programming includes:

  • Coordinating on and off campus visits for schools and non-affiliated Texas Tech University organizations;
  • Participating in Lubbock community events;
  • Hosting the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) Area event;
  • Following up with summer participants and their interest in TTU; and,
  • Organizing residential summer camps.

Cancellations after May 15 require a Medical or Family/Health Emergency situation for a refund. Please reference our Refund Policy (above) for details in regards to refund amounts. Should you cancel outside of the provided circumstances, a non-refundable fee of $200 will be billed to the original payment made.

There are no refunds for campers who do not check-in at camp or are dismissed from the camp due to disciplinary issues/illness. Please ensure that you read and review the conduct policies with your child prior to camp. Removal from camp is at the discretion of the Director of Campus Connect.
