We understand you are not new to college, but you are new to the Louisiana Tech campus. For 40 years Louisiana Tech Orientation has helped make the transition to Tech easier. Join other transfer, readmission and nontraditional students in an informal seminar to learn more about Tech from a new perspective. You can also meet with academic advisors and register for fall classes. After Orientation, you'll be well on your way to becoming part of the Tech Family.

You must be admitted and complete your orientation registration by the below deadline to attend. Walk-ins will be assigned to the next available session.

Check-in between 8:00 - 8:45 a.m. in the TONK. Directions can be found at http://admissions.latech.edu/visit/map.php.

Orientation concludes around 3:00 p.m. You should plan to attend the orientation session that is most convenient for your schedule
