Start Your Application


The University has a selective admissions process, the objective of which is to identify men and women who have the highest potential for advancement in their chosen field of study. While a student applicant’s academic record is a reliable measure for the prediction of academic success, the admissions decision is more complex than admitting students on the basis of a numerical formula. With this intent, Lawrence Tech considers, in addition to the applicant’s previous academic record, factors which demonstrate an aptitude for successful study.

 After you submit your application for admission, please contact the Office of Admissions to let us know of any changes or corrections to your application at 248.204.3160 or
