Q. What is the best time to apply to Tech?
A. Please consider applying atlest two months in advance to the deadlines posted by the school.
Q. What is the application fee for Tech? How should I pay it?
A. The application fee for international/Indian students is $40. You may send the application fee by check or draft in favor of "Louisiana Tech University". Please note that it is necessary to send the application fee along with your application packet in order to avoid delays in application processing.
Q. Isn't there an online application for Tech?! Can I at least pay the application fee online?
A. At this time, Tech does not provide an online application. The application fee cannot be paid online either. However, if you wish to use an international debit/credit card to pay the application fee, you may do so over the phone by calling the Comptroller's Office at +1-318-257-4325.
Q. If I send you my academic profile, will you able to tell my chances for admission?
A. The admission decision is taken at various stages and is the collective decision of the Graduate School, College of Engineering & Science, and the particular academic Department. These offices have their preset guidelines and cutoff limits for admission, but they also restrict or relax these guidelines based on other applications for that particular term. Thus, it is not possible to predict the admission chances generally. The Guidebook FAQ enumerate the guidelines and generally possible relaxations, using which you may be able to assess your own chances for admission. If your application does not meet the general criteria of admission, you may still apply at your own risk. The AIS does not have a say in the process of admission, and thus disclaims any and all liability pertaining to the information provided therein.
Q. I am applying for an undergraduate program. I don't find much help here...
A. The International Student Office (ISO) has a very helpful website in your case. In fact, the ISO also processes your application. You may also consider writing to email@example.com explaining your situation.
Q. I am applying for an non-engineering and science program. You don't seem to care about providing much information for me.
A. The AIS cares for all the students equally. However, most Indian students at Tech are students of engineering and science programs and thus specific help is provided to these students, thereby leaving out other majors and programs. However, the Guidebook should still be helpful for most part. For other queries you have, you may e-mail us and we shall provide you the information you need.
