Enrollment Options

If you are applying to TTU K-12's tuition-free program and are a Texas resident:

Enrollment in the Texas resident tuition-free program is limited. State law requires that we conduct a lottery to select students for existing admission slots each semester. In between lotteries, applicants will be placed on a waitlist and will be contacted as slots become available. The next lottery will take place on November 15, 2021, for enrollments beginning in January 2022.

  • You will need a birth certificate, proof of Texas residency, and an unofficial transcript to submit your application*. You will not be entered into the lottery unless this required information is provided.
  • Homeschool students must also provide a transcript and will be required to take Credit By Exams for grade placement.

Please Be Aware

There are some different requirements for tuition-free students, based on state law. By submitting the application, you are agreeing to abide by these requirements.
