Admissions Header

The University has a selective admissions process, the objective of which is to identify men and women who have the highest potential for advancement in their chosen field of study. While a student applicant’s academic record is a reliable measure for the prediction of academic success, the admissions decision is more complex than admitting students on the basis of a numerical formula. With this intent, Lawrence Tech considers, in addition to the applicant’s previous academic record, factors which demonstrate an aptitude for successful study.

Application Requirements

  • Completed application
  • Official high school transcripts
  • Official ACT or SAT scores
  • For all majors except Nursing: Essay describing your educational goals, highlighting your educational career, or describing your involvement in any leadership development programs
  • Nursing Majors:  Essay describing why you are choosing nursing as your major
  • Application fee of $30

Admissions decisions are based on a student's recalculated GPA, ACT/SAT scores, and essay. Strong emphasis is placed on grade trends as well as the strength of the curriculum and rigor of a student's senior schedule. 

Lawrence Tech is on a rolling admission system so there is no formal deadline to apply to the University; however, it is highly recommended to submit your application documents as soon as possible to ensure ample processing time.

Please note that the recalculated GPA is weighted, so any Honors, Advanced, or AP/IB courses will also be taken into consideration.
