The scholarship application timeline is as follows:
- to be awarded for the spring semester the application opens November 15 and closes on December 15.
- to be awarded for the fall semester the application opens March 15 and closes on July 15.
Why Lone Star College Promise?
The College Promise program is designed to reduce financial barriers to college and provide students with assistance to navigate and complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and the admissions process to attend Lone Star College.
LSC created the program to provide more opportunity for students to pursue and complete their higher education and break down the barriers to earning a college degree for in-district students. Lone Star College is committed to student access, equality, success and completion.
The LSC Promise will fund the balance of tuition and mandatory fees due for students that still demonstrate financial need after all Federal grant and scholarship awards are used to pay for tuition and fees. Books are not covered. It is not a loan and does not have to be paid back.
