Our Services to Incoming Students

Airport Pickup

Texas Tech and the Lubbock community would like to welcome you to your new home away from home.

You must be arriving between August 14th and 20th.  If you are interested in being a part of this program, please click the red button and fill the arrival form.

International Orientation Fall 2017

August 25th 8:00-5:00

International Orientation is designed to answer questions unique to international students. International students come to Tech with different experiences and needs than domestic students. We have created an additional orientation just for them to assist them as they transition to Texas Tech.

International Orientation will help you achieve success in your new cultural surrounding. Professionals that know what you are about to go through will guide you through your questions. This Orientation will help you be successful at Texas Tech University.

We will provide insight into:

  • Culture Shock and how to overcome it
  • Health and Safety
  • Risk-Intervention & Safety Intervention
  • Academics in the U.S.
  • Immigration

We will provide breakfast and lunch for free, and make sure you leave Orientation with a support group in place.
