Lamar Institute of Technology will hold five orientation sessions for new students who plan to attend LIT in the fall. Each session will last an hour. There will be a separate orientation held at the same time for parents.


Incoming Lamar University freshmen can start their college careers off right by registering for one of seven upcoming new student orientation sessions.

Orientation is designed to ease the transition to college for first-time freshmen and incoming students with fewer than 18 hours of college credit. At orientation, students and their family members will meet college deans and current students, learn about student organizations and academic resources, and gather financial aid information.
