During the orientation program, we will be presenting vital information on immigration regulations, academic issues, health insurance, and many campus resources. You will complete all necessary procedures for class registration including placement testing, English skills testing, and meeting with your academic advisor. Orientation will also be an opportunity for you to meet other new students and familiarize yourself with the LTU campus. You must attend orientation before you will be allowed to register for classes.
After you obtain your visa, please complete the online orientation reservation form to secure a place in the mandatory orientation and to report to our office of your intentions to attend LTU. Please register for only one orientation associated with the semester you will be attending LTU.
Life as an international student means balancing the requirements of the United States Immigration regulations with that of the LTU academic policies. American culture requires that you take personal responsibility for learning, understanding, and following all regulations. The International Student Orientation provides the foundation for this continual learning process. Helpful information about coming to and living in the United States can be found at http://www.internationalstudents.org (not affiliated with Lawrence Tech). Another great resource is Study in the States.
On behalf of the Office of International Programs (OIP), we look forward to welcoming you to our campus. Over the course of your stay at LTU, the OIP will assist you with your cultural adjustment, academic integration, professional growth, and personal support.
