Chancellor’s Welcome

Welcome to Lone Star College!

LSC is much more than a community college, it is an exciting, thriving group of people dedicated to one goal: your success. LSC has been helping students in the greater Houston area succeed for more than 45 years and has grown from serving 613 students in 1972 to more than 99,000 students today.

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 universities don’t have, like small classes (most average about 23 students). This allows for more personal attention from our highly-qualified faculty members. LSC also has mentoring, tutoring and counseling services available to help you succeed.

Lone Star College can get you trained and help get you hired in some of Houston’s hottest industries like health care, computer technology, industrial/commercial construction, HVAC, process lab technology, truck driving and logistics, and energy and manufacturing, all in state-of-the-art facilities.

The Honors College at LSC allows students the chance to earn an Honors Associate of Arts or Honors Associate of Science degree with an International Capstone project. We also have active chapters of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and opportunities to study abroad.

We know not everyone can be a Monday-Friday, 8-5 full-time student. That’s why LSC has schedules with classes throughout the day, evenings and weekends, along with 24-7 LSC-Online classes.

Afraid of missing out on student activities? You will find many opportunities to participate in student clubs and organizations, intramural and club sports, student life, and theater and music performance groups at all of our campuses.

While there are many wonderful things about Lone Star College to talk about, I am most proud of our commitment to providing high-quality academic and workforce programs to enhance your learning experience and help prepare you for the 21st century workforce.

Thank you for choosing Lone Star College. You will be joining more than 99,000 students each semester who are proud to call LSC home.

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