international students

Lawrence Technological University has a long history of servicing the unique needs of our international student population. Our goal is to ensure that all international students are well-serviced and provided with the best opportunities when they arrive to campus. In keeping with this, we have instituted a non-refundable enrollment deposit for all international students of $500. This deposit will help us better manage our international student population while they proceed through the completion of the application process and the preparations for arrival to campus.


Enrollment Deposit Submission

All international students are required to submit a $500 non-refundable deposit to complete your application and finalize your admission documentation.  This should be submitted to the Office of Admission in certified funds such as:

  • A money order or certified check. 
  • The use of a wire transfer is also acceptable; please contact the Office of Admission ( for wire transfer details.
  • To pay the deposit online, please click here. Once you have accessed the Touchnet home page, login with your student ID and your six-digit birth date in MMDDYY format, or PIN if you have previously used the system. Click on "Make a Payment", indicate payment amount, and continue. Select "Method of Payment", then follow the directions to process your credit card payment.


The deposit will be held on the student account for use in the second enrolled semester. Upon enrollment in the second semester, a student may request that the funds be released to his/her account for payment of tuition and fees. The deposit can only be used for the second semester tuition and fees.

The international student enrollment deposit must be submitted at least 60 days prior to the start of the term to which you have been admitted. The confirmation of enrollment through the enrollment deposit and all required documentation to issue an I-20 must be submitted prior to the 60 day deadline.
