About Our Classes

We are a fairly large, diverse international community yet small enough to make you feel welcome in a friendly environment. Our classrooms are small with qualified faculty and staff dedicated to making your educational experience a value for your future.

Lone Star College is a comprehensive community college system of six campuses to choose from: LSC-CyFair, LSC-Kingwood, LSC-Montgomery, LSC-North Harris, LSC-Tomball and LSC-University Park.

Enrollment at any of our six campuses involves five processes: admission, visa approval by the U.S. government, advisement, orientation and course registration.

Getting Started

You must have your LSCS-approved medical insurance in place and all of your previous transcripts turned in to your Designated School Official (DSO)/International Student Advisor before you can register for classes.  You must also see an adviser about assessment testing.

Before classes start, you must sign-up for international student orientation at the campus you will attend.

Orientation Sessions

Each campus provides an orientation session specifically for international students. This is different from the new student orientation that is required for new students by each campus.

  • Dates
    These sessions occur before the semester begins.  Your DSO/International Student Advisor will notify you of your assigned date and time in your acceptance packet. Please make arrangements to attend this mandatory session.

Campus Resources

The resources below can help you decide your program and courses, prepare you for talking to your DSO/International Student Advisor and assist you during your time at Lone Star College.  Please note that as an international student only 3 of your 12 credits can be taken in an online course for the duration of your studies at Lone Star College. Please see your DSO/International Student Advisor before enrolling in any online courses.

For campus information, please view the Student Services Web site or contact your DSO/International Student Advisor. The maps page provides location information for each of the campuses.
