Fall 2020 Orientation & Registration

Your steps to becoming an LTU Blue Devil begin by replying to your offer of admission and submitting your $100 deposit through your student status page to reserve your space at Lawrence Tech. Once you complete this step, you will then be able to apply for university housing, secure any Lawrence Tech scholarships that have been offered to you and register for Orientation & Registration. You are encouraged to reply to your offer of admissions and submit your enrollment deposit as soon as you make Lawrence Tech your choice. May 1 is the national candidate reply deadline. Enrollment deposits are refundable until May 1st with written notification.


Step 1: Placement Assessments

This is the first step in the orientation and registration process. In order to determine which classes you should enroll in, students are required to take placement assessments in a variety of areas. You must take your placement assessments before attending Orientation and Registration as your scores are required for the registration process. Check-in for assessment dates begin 30 minutes prior to event start time. You must present a photo ID at check in. Duration of assessments will depend on how many assessments you are required to take.

Step 3: Housing

We recommend that you live on campus. It gives you quick access to your classes, sporting events and activities. It is also much easier to make friends and get involved. The housing application is available via your student status page. Please note, you must pay your $100 enrollment deposit to access the housing application.

Step 4: Pay Laptop Deposit

One of the great benefits of being a Lawrence Tech undergraduate student is that you are supplied a powerful laptop or tablet computer customized with all the software you'll need for your particular program of study. All undergraduate students who attend O & R will be given the opportunity to pick up their laptop during the O & R program. We recommend paying the laptop deposit prior to O & R for a faster and smoother distribution of your laptop. Below are the steps that need to be taken to pick up your laptop (these steps will vary slightly depending on if you are under 18 years old on the day you pick up your laptop). Everyone will need to:

Pay the $500 laptop deposit using one of the following methods:
You may pay your laptop deposit on your student status page until Friday, June 5.  If you do not pay your laptop deposit through your student status page, you will need to pay this deposit when you arrive for your O&R date.

After you register for classes, sign the laptop contract. If you are under 18 on the day you pick up your laptop, you should review and sign the contract  prior to attending O & R and know that both you and your parent will be required to sign the contract in order to receive your laptop. If you are over 18 on the day you pick up your laptop, you will be required to sign an online laptop contract at O & R. 

Students who do not pick up their laptop during O & R will be able to pick it up at the designated laptop distribution dates for the Fall 2019 semester. In order to use financial aid to pay the laptop deposit, you will be required to wait until laptop distribution dates before classes begin. Prior to picking up your laptop you will need to visit the financial aid office for approval.
