New Freshmen and Transfer Oriention

Summer Orientation dates begin in June and are scheduled throughout the summer until school begins in August. Prospective student athletes are expected to attend an orientation date as early as possible; preferably one of the first or second scheduled dates. By the time summer roles around, continuing students have already registered for the fall semester. Therefore, it is imperative that prospective student athletes secure their schedules as early as possible to ensure that they are able to choose classes that are not conflicting with their team practice times and scheduled athletic events.

In order to help facilitate as trouble free an orientation experience as possible we recommend that the following to do list be completed before attending orientation:

Required On-Line Math-English-Language Placement Testing

a)Everyone, no matter what your major, must take the Math Placement Test (MPT). The reason for this is that there are a number of majors that require a sequence of math courses and while at this time you may not be thinking of majoring in one of those areas there is a reasonable possibility that you will change your mind. Please make sure that you use a calculator when taking the exam.

b)If you are thinking that you want to continue studying foreign language then you should take the Foreign Language Placement test to get an idea of which course you would begin taking at LU. If you want to start studying a new language then you don’t need to take the placement test you would start at the 101 level.
