Go! Freshman Orientation

Dates: August 20-August 22, 2020

GO (Get Oriented) is all about starting from scratch. It is designed to build relationships and to introduce you to campus life at LCU before your classes begin. We want you to feel at home, so we've created an orientation program just for first year students presented by upperclassmen, faculty and staff. During this time, you'll get the chance to meet new people, the same faces you'll sit beside at graduation and remember for the rest of your lives. Plus, you will get a taste of what LCU campus life is all about! GO is definitely something you don't want to miss.

Once you have registered for courses at LCU, be sure to register for GO! Register by visiting your personal web page at be.lcu.edu/firstnamelastname or contact your Admissions Advisor.


Freshman Parent Orientation

Dates: August 20, 2021

Your student is about to begin an exciting new journey and we at Lubbock Christian University understand that you will be beside your student every step of the way. You will play an important role in your student’s success.  In this light, we have designed a parent orientation that will answer many questions parents often have regarding their student’s new experience in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. It is important parents plan to attend these parent-only sessions.

Parent Registration

Ready, Set, BLUE dates are early registration days set aside for incoming freshman who have RSVP'd in advance. This ensures that these students have the first opportunity to register for important classes before the rest of the student body. These are only for students who have paid the $200 advance and are cleared to register. Summer registration days are options to register as well but do not offer the exclusivity for incoming freshman that the early registration dates do.

With the exception of the MSN-Family Nurse Practitioner track, all of LCU’s graduate programs have rolling admissions* and will accept applications at any time. Applicants should note that some programs accept applications year-round, but have fixed start dates.

*To ensure adequate time for consideration, applications should be completed 30 days prior to the beginning of the desired enrollment period. Applications received or completed after this time will be processed as space and time allow.
