Important

Course enrollment is dependent upon University Mathematics and English placement rules. Students placed in Math 100 or English 100 will be evaluated on an individual basis due to blocked scheduling requirements. Participants must meet Living-Learning Community eligibility requirements and will be selected on a first come, first serve basis. Eligibility is evaluated on a student's ability to enroll in the courses identified for each Living-Learning Community.

Steps to Take

  1. Apply and be a regularly admitted student to Tarleton State University for Fall semester.
  2. Submit and complete your Housing Application/Contract. The Living-Learning Community application is a part of that process and you will need to agree/commit to the Living-Learning Community requirements as a component of the housing application/contract process. 
  3. We will evaluate your eligibility to enroll in any courses required for the Living-Learning Community program and, if you are eligible, we will place you in a category that will allow you to select a room within that Living-Learning Community environment during the self-assignment process.
