Students who successfully complete the 2-year program earn an IB diploma in addition to a high school diploma. The IB diploma is recognized as a symbol of excellence by elite schools in the US and around the world.  “One of the reasons that the Texas Tech University Honors College gives preferential treatment to IB graduates is that we have come to value the quality of the student who completes this program,” said Gary M. Bell, Dean of the TTU Honors College at Texas Tech University. “The most substantial attraction for us is that the student who completes the IB program is certifiably motivated, hard-working, curious and conscientious.  Nothing predicts college success better than those qualities.”
