How do I access the TTU K-12 Portal?
Open a Web browser and navigate to https://portal.ttuk12.ttu.edu

In the drop-down list box for Section, you will see all courses listed from your partnership. Please contact TTU K-12 for a list of currently active sections. Select the course you want to view.

Courses with a 5-digit code, such as (86532), indicate courses from the the new Blackboard LMS.
If you represent multiple schools, this option allows you to select the specific school you want to review.
