Summer SWARM

Due to COVID-19, registration for summer SWARM events has been postponed to May 1. At this time, we are hopeful that we will be able to continue with SWARM as previously scheduled. We have the ability to register all students online if on-ground events are not an option.  

We will follow the guidelines and restrictions of the CDC as more information comes available. We will update this page as LeTourneau makes decisions in the coming days and weeks.

If you have questions, we are happy to correspond with you via email or telephone. Our office can be reached at Admissions@letu.edu or 903-233-3000. You can visit COVID-19 Updates to see the latest news from LeTourneau

  • Shampoo and all toiletries (including towel)
  • Comfortable shoes and an outfit suitable for being "active"
  • Any financial documentation (FAFSA, etc.) or information you would like to discuss with student accounts
  • Copies of transcripts
  • You may turn in completed shot records for our health form if you have them ready
