Red Raider Orientation



Welcome to the Texas Tech University Honors College!

We are very excited to welcome you to Red Raider Orientation! As a member of the Honors College, you will have additional advising and course requirements in order to register successfully for your first semester. The information contained on this page is intended to help you understand these additional requirements and how they work in conjunction with your overall degree plan.

For students attending a two-day orientation session, we will hold a MANDATORY Group Advising Session on Day One at 5:15 PM in the Matador Room of the Student Union Building. At this session, the Honors College advisors will explain all Honors requirements and will be available afterwards to answer any questions you might have.

We hope to make your transition to the Honors College at Texas Tech University as smooth as possible, so please do not hesitate to contact us by calling 742-1828, stopping by McClellan Hall or viewing Honors Advisors.
