To help with your transition to our college, LSC-CyFair offers New Student Orientation sessions throughout the year. These sessions give incoming college students an opportunity to learn about Lone Star College, connect with peers, staff & faculty, as well as meet with an Academic Advisor to get put on the right pathway for college success. If students attend Orientation while class enrollment is open, they will also get hands-on enrollment assistance from our Enrollment staff.
Orientation is the last step before college registration, so all prior admission steps must be completed before students can attend an Orientation session.
