Transfer, Readmission, and Non-Traditional Advising and Registration

We understand you are not new to college, but you are new to the Louisiana Tech campus. For over 44 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 Transfer Advising and Registration, you’ll be well on your way to becoming part of the Tech Family.
