Apply as a Transient Student

  1. Apply for admission through the Apply Texas system and select the Transient Application.
    • Official academic transcripts of previous college work are not required for admission, however, they may be required to determine TSI status and academic prerequisite fulfillment.
  2. 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.

    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.
