New Graduate Student Orientation

 August 20, 2020

Fall 20 NGSO

Due to the on-going concerns regarding COVID-19 and in an effort to plan for the safety of our students, guests, faculty, and staff, Texas Tech University has made the difficult decision to offer a fully online, Virtual New Graduate Student Orientation in place of the on-campus program for Fall 2020.


More information coming soon. Keep checking back or keep an eye on your email as NGSO information comes available.


New Graduate Student Orientation (NGSO) presentations are designed to:
