Frequently Asked Questions for LSC-CyFair Math Students
Q? How can I find out how to contact my professor?
A! Please visit our Faculty Directory.
Q? I'm having trouble in my class. Is there anywhere I can go to get some more help?
A! Yes!!!! Please come visit our Tutoring Center. Here are the current semester schedule and a list of tutors including subjects they tutor.
Q? I'd like to learn more about one of the math courses. How can I find such information as a description of the course, what the prerequisites are and what textbook will be used?
A! Please select the appropriate course description at the bottom of the page.
Q? I'd like to take a certain course but I have never taken the prerequisite course. Is it possible to take the course anyway?
A! You would need to demonstrate that you already have expertise in the material covered in the course you want to skip. You can demonstrate that by appropriate scores on one of the tests we use for placement. This chart shows the tests we use and the scores you'd need to have. For more help, please visit the advising office at any Lone Star College campus.
Q? I am considering taking one of LSC-CyFair's online math courses. Is there anything in particular I should know about those?
A! 1) In both the printed schedule for the semester and in the online registration system you will see a comment line with either an email address for you to contact the instructor or a link to a webpage describing the course. Please contact the instructor or visit the website for detailed information before you decide to enroll in the class.
2) It is department policy that ALL tests in online classes MUST be taken in a proctored setting, such as a testing center either in the Lone Star College System or in another college or university. Tests cannot be taken unsupervised.
Q? A class I'd like to register in is already full. Can the enrollment cap be overriden?
A! Unfortunately, no. Our enrollment caps are set to the maximum legal capacity in the room. You can continue to watch enrollment to see if anyone drops or you can select a different class.
Q? Where can I find some important dates for a class I'm taking such as when the last day to drop is, when Final Exams are and whether there are any holidays?
A! Please visit this link to Important Dates.
Q? My instructor uses the online support system MyMathLab in his or her class. What do I need to do to get started?
A! If this is the first time you've enrolled in MyMathLab or any other Pearson MyLab or Mastering class read the Instructions for First Time Users.
If you have enrolled in a MyMathLab or any other Pearson MyLab or Mastering class read the Instructions for Returning Users.
If you are having trouble paying for your MyMathLab access, read about our Temporary Access Program.
Q? I like math. Is there a way for me to get involved in mathematics outside of class and meet other people who like math, too?
A! Yes!!!! Please come visit our Math Club. We have fun activities for students at all levels of mathematical experience from beginners to advanced.
