F-1 Student Advising
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.
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.
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.
