New Student Orientation @ LSC-CyFair

To help with your transition to our college, LSC-CyFair offers hundreds of New Student Orientation sessions each year during all semesters. These sessions give incoming college students an opportunity to learn about Lone Star College, connect with peers, staff & faculty, as well as meet an Academic Advisor to get put on the right pathway for college success. If students attend NSO while class enrollment is open, they will also get hands-on enrollment assistance from our Enrollment staff.
