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, 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. New Student Orientation is FREE – however, students must register after completing all of the necessary pre-requisites listed on the myLoneStar Applicant checklist.
