Texas Tech University


Welcome Red Raiders!

What is RRO?

Red Raider Orientation (RRO) is designed to help you become familiar with campus, learn about campus resources, meet other new students, and register for classes. 

This 4 step RRO process includes self-paced online modules, synchronous virtual academic advising and class registration sessions during the summer months supplemented by in-person campus experiences, followed by even more activities during Raider Welcome (the weeks before classes begin).

What is TSI?

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state-mandated developmental education program that provides support to students who have not demonstrated college-readiness in reading, writing, or mathematics. TSI at Texas Tech University creates customized academic support plans for developmental coursework in these key areas to ensure students will be successful in their selected academic majors and beyond.

Students who are required to enroll in TSI courses will receive notification prior to their RRO session via their TTU email. Please make sure to check the Admitted Student Tasklist, review your TSI hold, and prepare for TSI advising prior to your registration date.

Students will receive the link to the TSI advising session via their TTU email address. Please review the TSI advising page for additional details.
