2017-2018 Fall Publication [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Chancellor's Welcome 2017-2018


   Welcome to Lone Star College! We are happy you have chosen LSC and are committed and ready to help you achieve your education goals.

   This catalog will help guide you through the exciting process of earning an associate degree or certificate, transferring classes to other institutions, training for a career or updating your current job skills.

   Lone Star College has advantages that four-year universities don't have, like small classes - most average about 23 students - and more personal attention from highly-qualified faculty members. LSC also offers mento­ring, tutoring and counseling to help you succeed.

   Not everyone can be a Monday-Friday, 8-5 full-time student. So LSC offers flexible schedules with classes throughout the day, evenings and weekends, along with 24-7 LSC-Online classes. Lone Star College can also put you on a fast track to join some of Houston's hottest in­dustries like health care, computer technology, industrial/ commercial construction, process and lab technology, truck driving and logistics, energy and manufacturing and more, in state of the art facilities.

   You will find many opportunities to get involved in our college community beyond the classroom. Student clubs and organizations; intramural and club sports; student life; and theatre and music performance groups all highlight the rich and diverse opportunities available to LSC students.

   Many are surprised to learn LSC offers The Honors College at LSC, allowing motivated students the chance to earn an Honors AA or Honors AS degree with an international Capstone project. We offer active chapters of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor society and opportunities to study abroad.

   As you can see, Lone Star College is much more than a community college; it is a vibrant, thriving group of ded­icated people coming together to make their community a better place to live and learn.

   We know you have a choice and we are honored you have chosen Lone Star College for your education needs. You will be joining more than 95,000 students who are proud to call LSC home.

   There has never been a better time to Start Close and Go Far with Lone Star College!
