Register for RRO

Before you Register...Please Read the Following

  1. There are two different types of RRO sessions: Freshman and Transfer.  The RRO registration system will automatically determine which type of session you are required to attend.
  2. There are no upfront costs for students to attend RRO. The fee for orientation will be charged to students' fall tuition.
  3. Parents and family members: We HIGHLY recommend you attend orientation with your student. If you choose to attend, you must register each person as a "Guest." A guest has the option to stay on-campus or off-campus. 
    • For the Freshman Two-Day sessions, if guests are added, the fees must be paid up front. The "Guest" fee will vary based upon age, and if they are staying on- or off-campus. The registration system defaults to the guest to stay on-campus, so make sure that you select the correct guest registration type before submitting. 
    • There is no guest fee for the Transfer One-Day sessions.
    • "Guests" can be added or removed after the student completes their RRO Registration if you aren't sure who will attend with you.
  4. For incoming freshman from high school and transfers with 23 credits or below: the schedule for RRO is a TWO-DAY event. RRO check-in starts at 10 am. Please do not plan to leave RRO before 3 pm on day two.
  5. For the Two- Day sessions, students will be staying overnight in Hulen/Clement during RRO. Your roommate will be randomly assigned.
    • Overnight accommodations are not provided for the One-Day sessions.
  6. If a student and/or guest needs optional accommodations for arrival to Lubbock a day EARLY or a day LATE, you can reserve optional on-campus accommodations for an extra fee to be paid upfront: $19 for student, $25 for guests. You can also choose to make other arrangements for early or late arrival. There are several reasons you may need to come early or late:
    • RRO starts at 10 am. You might need to travel to Lubbock the night before to make it in time for check-in.
    • You should plan to stay at RRO until 3 pm on day two of your session. Depending on your travel arrangements, you might need to leave the next morning.
    • You may need to test for TSI compliance (for more information about TSI, visit the Texas Success Initiative website and our Registration Hold page). Some students may need to test in several areas, and tests are untimed. We recommend coming to Lubbock a day prior to your RRO session to ensure you are not rushed during testing, and so you will have a better RRO experience.
  7. Students may have course Registration Hold(s) on their account. A hold represents a requirement that has NOT been completed by the student. While these holds will not prevent you from registering for Red Raider Orientation, a hold must be completed in order to register for classes. You can view your holds when you log into the RRO registration system. You are encouraged to take care of any holds prior to your Red Raider Orientation session. 
    • A hold you may encounter is a Texas Success Initiative (TSI) hold. This means you need to take one or more tests. If a student has a TSI hold on their account, the student must come A DAY EARLY and take the test(s) with Academic Testing Services.
  8. You will be able to see your declared major when you log into the registration system.  If you would like to change your major, you are encouraged to sign up for RRO as soon as possible, then change your major.  You may log back into the registration system to change your RRO date if you wish after your major is changed.  For more information about majors and how to request a major change, visit our Verity Your Major page. Please note: It may take up to 48 hours for any major change requests to appear in the RRO registration system.
