2017 – 2018 LWTech Student Handbook
Welcome to LWTech!
I am excited to see so many new and returning faces! I am Amanda Pelly, your 2017-2018 Associated Student Government President. I have been attending LWTech since 2014 and am currently on my second year of BTAD. We are part of an exceptional student body known for our technical skills, hard work, dedication and creativity; I expect to see many great achievements from us this year. I can tell you from my experience LWTech is where you will find success. You are not alone on this journey. The whole LWTech staff is cheering for you and genuinely cares about providing you support. That said; please remember to seek help whenever you need it. Most people achieve their greatest success one-step beyond what looked like their greatest failure. The greatest piece of knowledge I’ve gained here in my time at LWTech is: you belong here, for as long as it takes.
~Amanda Pelly, Associated Student Government President

Prior Learning Assessment
Prior learning is knowledge and skills gained through: work and life experience, military training and experience, formal and informal education, and training from in- and out-of-state institutions, including foreign institutions. Identifying credit for prior learning can be accomplished by an assessment process (PLA), conducted by qualified faculty. That may result in one or several courses being posted on your transcript. Up to 25% of the total credits required for a degree or certificate may be earned through the PLA process. LWTech awarding PLA credits does not guarantee or imply that other institutions will accept those credits. If credit is awarded you are responsible for paying the transcription charge.
College Account User Name
Generally, the college requires you to use your legal name for enrollment purposes, college email and CANVAS accounts. In some circumstances, this may impose a hardship. If you want to use an alternate name, please follow these steps:
