New Parents & Students

We are dedicated to helping our new students (and families!) get the most out their LeTourneau experience. 

Student Life

A variety of departments work together to help new students integrate themselves into the LeTourneau community. From the moment your student walks onto campus until the moment they walk across the stage at commencement our faculty and staff are committed to support them.

The Student Handbook is another great resources for students and families to read through to gather information on key topics and campus resources. 

Welcome New Students! 

Once your student has applied and been accepted to LeTourneau you will make plans for Summer SWARM and New Student Orientation! 

Summer SWARM is a Friday-Saturday event that helps jump start the LeTourneau experience. During the weekend, students will register for classes, meet professors and fellow students, see their new room, get assistance with financial aid and much more.

New Student Orientation is a crucial (and fun!) part of your student's first steps into life as a college student. The 2018 dates are August 16-19. In addition to student activities there is a special track for parents that includes fellowship among fellow parents, information sessions, prayer time and much more. 

New Student ID


All LeTourneau students register for classes through their MyLETU account. They will login to MyLETU, work through their registration checklist and select courses. Be sure to take a look at the Academic Calendar each semester for registration dates and deadlines.

Peer Advisors

During New Student Orientation, students are introduced to their Peer Advisor. Peer Advisors are experienced student leaders who have demonstrated academic and community success. Their main focus is to develop relationships with first year students and to assist them with transitioning to university life. 


Peer Advisors will join your student in Cornerstones, which is a part of the First Year Experience (FYE). This course was designed just for freshmen! It helps to introduce students to the LeTourneau University community and encourages a holistic approach to life-long learning.

In Cornerstones, students explore how to fulfill God's unique design for their lives. This course helps with four essential cornerstones for life and learning: personal, intellectual, spiritual and community.
