Texas Tech Launches $10K Degree Completion Program


LUBBOCK, TX - Texas Tech University is introducing its first-ever $10K Degree Completion Program through Texas Tech University Online and its new Texas Tech DFW site in Irving, Texas, beginning May 1.   

The new initiative offers an affordable and flexible pathway for nontraditional students who have accumulated some college credits but have not yet completed their bachelor’s degree. It is also ideal for working professionals seeking to advance their careers through higher education.  

“This program not only serves a significant population in the DFW area but across the state and nation,” said Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec. “It represents the continuing effort of Texas Tech to provide a flexible and affordable pathway for nontraditional students to achieve a college degree.”  

Students can begin their educational journey without financial commitment through free micro-credential courses offered at the Texas Tech DFW site. These courses blend online learning with in-person supplemental instruction. 

Participants can also leverage their past work and life experiences to earn up to nine free credit hours through their prior learning experience. Those nine, plus the free micro-credential hours, are equivalent to 21 free hours, which will help students save time and money. 

Upon completing the micro-credentials, learners will be admitted to the bachelor’s program and finish the remainder of their courses online, choosing between a Bachelor of Arts in University Studies or a Bachelor of Science in Leadership Studies.  

For those who have completed at least 80 credit hours, the bachelor’s degree is attainable for as little as $10,000. The program will work to make the degree as affordable as possible for individuals with fewer than 80 hours, but their cost might be slightly higher than $10K. 

This still presents significant cost savings compared to traditional degree completion pathways, enhancing student affordability. Individual pricing will vary based on each student’s transfer credits and prior learning experiences. An adviser will assist students in estimating the total cost. 

Throughout the program, students can take advantage of flexible course offerings, including online and hybrid formats, allowing them to balance education with work and other commitments.
