Holistic Admissions Process and Our Student Code of Conduct

In addition to your academic record, test scores, and essay, we look for students who demonstrate they want to be involved in a campus community and embody the values of a TLU student.

Once you submit your application to TLU, you are agreeing to abide by our Student Code of Conduct as outlined in the TLU Student Handbook. A student who enrolls at TLU voluntarily becomes a part of a community where respect for others is the norm, and rational, mature behavior is expected. The voluntary entrance into the community implies acceptance by the student of university regulations, and the failure to comply with these standards subjects the student to disciplinary action.

If offensive or hateful social media content is brought to our attention at any point in the admissions process, we will address it with the prospective student or admitted student. A student’s application could be negatively impacted by the discovery of offensive or hateful speech on social media. We also maintain the right to rescind an admissions decision due to social media posts that violate our Student Code of Conduct.

Financial Aid Packages

Our financial aid counselors can provide a summary of cost estimate based on a student's high school transcript and SAT/ACT scores but we must receive a completed FAFSA to be able to provide a complete financial aid package that includes federal (Pell grants, etc.), state (TEG) and institutional funds as well as optional loans.
