International Student and Scholar Services

Louisiana Tech’s International Student Office is dedicated to providing individual attention to each of our students, helping to ensure International Students reach their goals academically, socially, and professionally. The office is committed to continually assessing student needs and providing up-to-date immigration information, advice, and assistance.

In addition, the office presents orientation and cultural programs that prepare students for successful participation in the educational experience at the university and in the community.  It also organizes cultural programming that fosters education and gives the university and community intercultural opportunities to interact and learn and experience other cultures.

Online Graduate Programs

Louisiana Tech University is ranked 17th in the nation for most affordable online programs by AffordableColleges.com. Enrolling in an online program through Louisiana Tech is an excellent way to take your career to the next level while continuing to work in your home country. 

Our online Master’s in Engineering and Technology Management is ranked 4th in the nation by SR Education Group. The online Master’s program in Health Informatics is ranked 17th in the nation by Best Colleges. The online MBA is ranked 35th in the top 50 online MBA programs by Online MBA Today. 

A full course load of 3 classes only costs $3,081/quarter or a full academic year costs less than $10,000. Prices like these for such highly ranked programs are the exact reason we are so strong on affordability and ROI.


One major attraction for international students is the Bulldog Scholarship, which more than 60% of undergraduates receive, as well as Graduate students on an assistantship. The Bulldog Scholarship waives the out-of-state tuition, bringing annual tuition and fees below $10,000.


Attending college involves many new adventures and experiences, including living in a residential setting with other students who are just as diverse and dynamic as you. At Louisiana Tech, we provide several different living options - from traditional residence hall to apartment-style living. 

Each setting comes with unique benefits to the resident. Both inside and outside of the walls of your new home away from home, the office of Residential Life strives to provide opportunities for social engagement by promoting involvement around campus through organizations and events. Both our students and professional staff are friendly faces walking alongside you and cheering you on as you navigate through college life.
