We believe we have a responsibility to institute proactive health and safety measures to decrease the spread and potential exposure of COVID-19. For that reason, our personalized and standard visits, as well as visit programs from March 16 through May 1, have been canceled. Although we are unable to host visitors on our campus during this time, the TLU Admissions team is excited to offer live, 20-minute virtual visit events every day at 10:30 am or 2 pm for prospective students, admitted students, and transfer students.

Our virtual visits include presentations tailored for students who just want to know more about TLU, students who’ve already been admitted to TLU, or students who are interested in transferring to TLU. Throughout the presentation, you can interact with an Admissions Representative through the chat feature. We are live on every session, ready to answer all of your questions!
