In August 1995, Lone Star College-Montgomery opened its doors as the fourth Lone Star College with a dedication ceremony led by then Texas Gov. George W. Bush. It was established as a comprehensive college located on 165 acres of pine forest between The Woodlands and Conroe, to serve the residents of Montgomery County.

LSC-Montgomery is also located just footsteps away from the LSC-University Center at Montgomery, which offers bachelor’s, master’s and specialized degrees from several university partners.

To accommodate student enrollment growth, LSC-Montgomery experienced campus expansion in 2011 with three new buildings opening on the main campus, as well as a new north side center in the Conroe/Willis area – the LSC-Conroe Center. LSC-Montgomery’s new buildings opened on campus include a new Health Science Center, a one-of-its-kind Music Hall, and a General Academic Center, as well as a 1,000-space parking garage.

LSC-Montgomery’s fall 2014 enrollment for credit students was 13,254.

Proven Financial Management

LSC is fiscally responsible and maintains a AAA Bond Rating from Standard & Poor’s Rating Services – enabling LSC to borrow money at lower interest rates. The credit rating was increased eight times in the last 10 years. In addition:

  • LSC maintains administrative operating expenses under 12%, which is one of the lowest in Texas. (Source: Texas Association of Community Colleges)
  • The LSC tax rate is lower than it was 15 years ago. And the Board of Trustees has lowered the tax rate 6 of the last 10 years. (11.6 cents/100 vs. 10.81 cents/100).
  • LSC has received a Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting recognition each year since 2004.
  • LSC maintains a tax freeze for 65+ and/or disabled which means the actual dollar amount owed will never increase, even if the property value increases.
