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 or registering for classes as your scores are required for the registration process. 

We will be conducting placement assessments remotely using Zoom. To test, you will need a computer (desktop or laptop) with a webcam and audio capabilities.  You will also need a valid photo ID.  Please click on the placement subject to register:



Below are some useful tips to prepare you for these assessments:

Step 2: Fall 2020 Orientation and Registration (O & R)

LTU is excited to offer Virtual O&R to our Fall 2020 incoming students! Virtual O&R will give students the opportunity to meet one-on-one with your advisor, select classes and register for your first semester's courses.  Additionally, you will be able to connect to current students and support services to help you excel as you begin in August. Registration for O&R will take place by logging into your student status page. You must submit your $100 enrollment deposit via your student state page before you can register. 

Benefits of Virtual Orientation & Registration:

  • Ability to register early for classes
  • One-on-one meeting with an LTU adviser (up to an hour)
  • To keep our future Blue Devils and campus community safe
  • Connect to current students
  • Learn about student support services 

Keeping our campus community safe and healthy is our number one priority.  We want to hold on-campus Orientation & Registration for those who need it, but are waiting to hear the Governor's next steps before we can select a date.

If you have any questions, contact the Office of Admissions at 248.204.3160. If you are an international student, please find specific international orientation information here.
