Because Louisiana Tech University has some of the finest student housing in the South, the apartment -style suites are in great demand. The Honors Program has been allotted suites in University Park and Park Place, but because Honors students tend to stay in school and perform exceptionally well, the turnover in these rooms is negligible. Students who currently live in the rooms have the right of first refusal, and may remain in the rooms year-to-year as long as they:
- Maintain a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.3;
- Take at least six hours of Honors credit a year or have finished the program;
- Follow the rules set down in the Honors Housing contract they signed when they first occupied the room as well as the rules and regulations dictated by the housing office.
Students who do not meet these criteria will be informed that their places must be vacated for the following school year. The Honors Program is not responsible for finding these students new accommodations.
Vacancies will be filled from the Honors housing waitlist.
The Honors Housing Waitlist
Each year, starting September 1st, the Honors Program will start a new housing waitlist for the following academic year. The list will be made up of both current and future Tech Honors students, with no preference given to either category. In the spring of that school year, after determining the eligibility of the present occupants of the Honors housing and their desire to retain their rooms, the students on the housing waitlist will be contacted in order of the addition of their name to the list if they meet the eligibility requirements (below). Students who do not meet the requirements will not be contacted.
Eligibility Requirements for Students on the Waitlist
High School Students - If the student has the ACT required for admission to the Honors Program, and no dual enrollment/college GPA, the student will be eligible for housing when his or her name comes to the top of the list. If the student does have a dual enrollment GPA for classes that count as college credit, the student must have at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA in those classes to be considered for Honors housing.
Full-time Louisiana Tech Students - Students currently at Louisiana Tech must have a 3.5 cumulative GPA, and must have taken at least six hours of Honors credit during the current school year in order to be eligible for Honors housing.
To be added to the Honors Housing waitlist, email firstname.lastname@example.org on or after September 1st. You cannot be added to the list until you have applied for the program and have been accepted.
Note: Some old-style dorms at Louisiana Tech are called "Honors Dorms" because they are reserved for students with high GPAs. The Honors Program does not administer these dorms. Contact the Housing Office for information.
