A Message to Incoming Students

Orientation at Louisiana Tech University is designed to help you incoming students and your parents make a smooth transition from high school to college. Our philosophy is simple: you should feel good about your decision to attend Louisiana Tech. It is important that you are excited, not nervous, about returning to your new home in the Fall.

Orientation is a fast-paced, high energy program that will introduce you to all aspects of the University. At Orientation you will not only get to register for your Fall Quarter classes but also get to meet many new people who are also attending Tech for the first time.

We're excited that you are joining the Tech Family and we look forward to being of service to you and your family!

A Message to Parents

Parents, you play a vital role in your child's decision to attend college as well. Thank you for supporting your students this far!

Our Parent Orientation Program will not only inform you of all that Tech has to offer but also help you with your student's transition. Parent Orientation runs concurrently with Student Orientation so that you can learn more about the Tech experience at the same time that your child does while also allowing them to have their first taste of college freedom as they select their own schedule and grow accustomed to their new alma mater.

We can't wait to see you at Parent Orientation!

How to Register

You will receive an email invitation (for both Student and Parent Orientation) when online registration becomes available. You may also register for Orientation through you Kennel account. Inside your Kennel account, the invitation will be in your "My Events & Interviews" Portal! Students must pay for Orientation by May 15, 2015. Orientation is a non-refundable fee.
