Texas Tech - Collin Partnership

Collin County Community College District entered into a Consecutive Admission Agreement and Memorandum of Understanding with Texas Tech University on May 17, 2006. The agreement nicknamed "Red Raider Bound Program" allows students to complete the first two years of their degree at Collin with guidance from Texas Tech and Collin academic and admissions advisors/counselors.


Invitations to special events and admissions/visitation programs on the Texas Tech and Collin campuses

  • Opportunity to attend the earliest orientation/class registration held each April (upon admittance to Texas Tech)
  • Access to the Texas Tech daily student newspaper, The Daily Toreador
  • Appointments with a major-specific advisor during a Texas Tech Campus visit
  • Texas Tech University Libraries - Amigos Interlibrary Loan Privileges
  • Access to admissions counselors/recruiters at Texas Tech's Dallas/Ft. Worth Regional Center
  • Scheduled admissions counselor/recruiter visits on the Collin campuses

How to Apply for Pre-Admissions:

To become a Red Raider Bound participant, Collin students must be in good standing at Collin and complete the Red Raider Bound Consecutive Pre-admission Agreement application.

While it is preferred for students to complete their AA/AS/AAS1/AAT degree at Collin prior to transferring, students meeting the transferable hours and GPA admission requirements will receive assured admission to Texas Tech2. Please note that certain majors, colleges and departments at Texas Tech may require a higher cumulative GPA and/or portfolio, recital or audition-based admission. Visit the Office of Admissions web site for current requirements and deadlines.

For more information contact 
Texas Tech University PreAdmissions Office at 806-742-1480.



1 Vocational, technical or Workforce Education Credit (WECM) courses are normally not accepted for transfer and therefore do not meet requirements for admittance to Texas Tech University. However, if a student with vocational, technical or WECM credit or an AAS degree is admitted based on transferable college work, only the student’s Texas Tech academic dean can determine the applicability of such credit towards a degree.

2 The Consecutive Pre-admission Agreement (aka: Red Raider Bound Program) is not available to students applying directly to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
