Summer Only Classes at Lamar University

Undergraduate students may be admitted as summer transient students if they attend another college in the spring and wish to enroll at Lamar University for the summer sessions only with the intent of returning to their degree-granting institution in the fall.

Academic advisement is the responsibility of the student. Summer transient students should consult with their regular academic advisors at their degree-granting institutions prior to enrolling in Lamar University summer classes.

 Taking summer courses is a great way to stay on track with your studies and graduate on time or early.

Apply as a summer transient student

  1. Apply for admission through the Apply Texas system and select the Transient Application.
  2. Send official transcripts from your current and any previous institution to Lamar University.
  3. Take the TSI Assessment.

    Students attending Texas public institutions of higher education must be in compliance with the Texas Success Initiative (TSI). Unless exempt, you must take the TSI Assessment to determine your readiness for college-level work before being advised and registering for classes.

    Exemptions from TSI testing include qualifying SAT, ACT, or TAKS scores.
    To verify exemption or testing requirements, please contact the Undergraduate Advising Center at (409) 880-8822 or

    Contact the LU Career & Testing Center to register for the TSI Assessment.

Summer transient students who wish to continue their studies at Lamar University beyond the summer classes must apply for regular admission and must meet all entrance requirements for Lamar University transfer students.
