TTU K-12, part of Texas Tech University’s eLearning & Academic Partnerships, announced today (July 22) it will now offer a tuition-free program to eligible Texas residents.
The state of Texas has designated TTU K-12 eligible to receive state funding and, beginning in August, the online school will offer a tuition-free K-12 academic program. However, enrollment is limited. State law requires that selection be conducted through a lottery to choose students for existing admission slots each semester.
“We are happy and excited to be able to offer our nationally ranked K-12 program free to Texas residents,” said Justin Louder, interim superintendent for TTU K-12. “This program will be offered in addition to the current options we provide our students.”
Louder said there are specific requirements students must follow for the tuition-free program that are different from the paid program, so he urges potential students and parents to read them carefully.
The lottery is now open, and selection will take place on Aug. 2.
