TTUISD is a Special Purpose District accredited by the Texas Education Agency (TEA)

All courses and Credit by Exams (CBEs) align with the:

TEA accreditation ensures that all TTUISD curriculum meets the standards set by the State of Texas and that students will be prepared for the TAKS, STAAR and EOC exams.

TTUISD History

The Texas Tech University High School Program was established by legislative and state board action in 1993 as a "Special Purpose District" designed to educate students with special situations whose educational needs are not adequately met by traditional school districts. In 1998, the Commissioner of Education granted expansion of the program to include kindergarten through 8th grade. Texas Tech University Independent School District (TTUISD) now serves students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

Transfer Credits

All credits earned through TTUISD are recognized by colleges and universities. Students looking to transfer credits to another elementary, middle or high school should always check with their local school counselor to ensure credits will transfer properly.

NCAA Eligibility

TTUISD's online high school courses do not currently meet NCAA initial eligibility standards for prospective student athletes. We strongly encourage high school students who are seeking NCAA eligibility to contact the NCAA Eligibility Center at 877-262-1492 before enrolling in any TTUISD online high school courses to discuss any student-specific concerns or special NCAA requirements.

These changes do not impact TTUISD's accreditation. TTUISD is accredited by the Texas Education Agency.
