2021 Sample Schedule

This is a SAMPLE schedule.

You will receive a full, detailed schedule with college advising links TWO DAYS prior to your scheduled date to your TTU Email.

Make sure to confirm your major so you receive the correct schedule.

Red Raider Orientation is exactly what is sounds like— an Orientation specifically designed for new TTU students. Between online modules, advising & registration and our in-person experiences, we'll give you all the information you need to feel confident when you step on campus for your first day of class. 

Prior to Your Scheduled Date

Your Advising & Registration date will be a busy time, so it's important to plan ahead to make sure you are ready for the program.


Complete Online Modules

RRO Online Modules will introduce you to the resources and services provided to you as a Texas Tech student. 

These online modules must be completed prior to your scheduled RRO Advising & Registration session. Your "Academic Orientation" hold will only be removed on your session date AFTER you complete all of your modules.


Verify Your Major

During your scheduled Advising & Registration session, you will meet with an academic advisor from the college that you were admitted into. If you are considering changing your major, it is recommended you do so at least 48 hours before attending Advising & Registration to ensure that you get connected to the correct academic advisor to make the most out of your advising and class registration meetings.

Read more about verifying your major.


Remove Holds

We STRONGLY encourage you to take care of any registration holds you have prior to your Advising & Registration session to help ensure a smooth advising and registration process.

You can also view your holds when you log into the RRO registration system. Your holds, if any, are listed under the Questionnaire page, in the Student Information section.


TSI Testing & Advising

Students who are required to enroll in TSI courses will receive notification prior to your scheduled Advising & Registration session via your TTU email.  Please review the TSI advising page for additional details.


Check Your TTU Email

Almost all of the official communication from Texas Tech will be sent to your TTU email address (including information about RRO from your academic advisor).

You should begin regularly checking your TechMail to make sure you don't miss important information and reminders.
