TTU K-12 Portal - Student FAQs

Dear TTU K-12 Parents and Students: Over the past year TTU K-12 has worked to improve our ability to provide a streamlined, efficient and consistent process for providing enhanced support services for our students and parents.

Today, we are pleased to announce that we have completed our efforts and equipped the TTU K-12 call center to better serve your needs. We have also addressed concerns raised over the last several years. Our TTU K-12 call center will provide 24/7 access to qualified staff to assist with enrollment, basic advising, billing information, and technical support to our students, parents, and teachers.

Security of student data and information is a priority for Texas Tech University, and we have enhanced our ability to protect all student and parent information. When you call the TTU K-12 call center, you will be asked to provide your nine digit student matriculation number. This number can be found in the upper right corner of the screen after you log into the TTU K-12 Portal and click the MyProfile button in the left menu.

The call center will also maintain an authorized user list so that anyone that calls in with the matriculation number can be vetted and identified as someone that is authorized to access a student's record. Using the TTU K-12 Portal, students can request authorized users be added or removed from their account; they cannot request this activity over the phone. An authorized user could be a parent, guardian or counselor. Once a request has been made, the request will be processed by TTU K-12 staff within two business days.

To update your authorized user list, you will need to:

  1. Log into the portal and click on “My Profile” on the left menu bar.
  2. Click on the “Authorized Users” tab.
  3. Click on the “Request New” button.
  4. Fill in the information in the online form and submit using the “Request User Access” button at the bottom.
  5. Staff will then review the request and approve or decline on a case-by-case basis, depending on the information provided.

We have also launched a new self-help student services portal that includes FAQs and a live chat feature. To utilize the new TTU K-12 student services portal, please go to: studentservices.k12.ttu.edu. You can also reach the call center by dialing (800) 692-6877.

We look forward to continuing to serve your educational needs and we will update you as we make changes to processes to better enhance the services we provide. We will be working to continuously enhance our services in a manner that protects your confidential data and information. If you have any questions or comments about this change please feel free to reach out to TTU K-12 at ttuk12@ttu.edu.
