Lone Star College remains committed to providing high quality academic transfer and workforce education that is affordable and close to home in the greater Houston area.
When the coronavirus struck, LSC was able to move 70,000 students to online classes in a seamless transition which allowed them to finish the 2020 spring semester. Moving forward, LSC continues to be an innovative leader helping students start and go far.
Today, LSC students can take advantage of 30+ fully online programs where they can earn associate of arts degrees in accounting, criminal justice, computer programming and teaching. These degrees are fully transferable, allowing students to take those credit hours earned and apply them toward a bachelor’s degree at a 4-year university.
As more students return to the campus for face to face instruction, LSC is ready to welcome them by providing a safe and secure learning environment. All decisions made are in the best interest of students, faculty and staff.
In addition to academic transfer education, LSC is also recognized as a world leader in workforce education training both, online and at state-of-the-art Workforce Centers of Excellence, to help build a strong regional labor force in exciting industries like health care, construction, accounting, energy, computer technology and transportation. LSC also helps qualified students find financial aid and grant funding options that can provide training at little or no cost.
An innovative institution, LSC was one of select handful of community college in Texas who received approval to begin offering bachelor’s degree in Nursing, Cybersecurity and Energy, and Manufacturing and Trades Management starting fall 2020. Students enrolled in these programs pay the regular LSC tuition saving them thousands of dollars.
High school students get a jump-start on college with LSC Dual Credit classes which allow them to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Students and parents save money on college tuition with students completing their degrees quicker and build self-confidence by having an introduction to college courses while still in high school.
Many students take advantage of the Honors College at LSC. These high achieving students get the opportunity to study abroad and take part in international programs, curriculums not commonly associated with a community college.
Close to home and family, affordable, world class. When you add it all up, it’s easy to understand why LSC is the choice for higher education in Houston.
