International Students

Greetings and Welcome to Lone Star College System!

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

Lone Star College System is committed to providing quality and friendly services to all international students enrolled at our campuses. If you are considering becoming a new student or are transferring from a U.S. college or university, visit our Future Students section to become familiar with all requirements.

Each campus has an DSO/International Student Advisor.  This person is your primary resource on questions about admissions, academics, maintaining status, medical insurance and other advising needs.

Future F-1 International Students

We are authorized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to admit eligible students on an F-1 visa to degree-seeking programs. If you wish to attend Lone Star on an F-1 visa, your first step is to apply for admission. Our college consists of six main campuses in the Houston metro area. Please contact one of the DSO/International Student Advisors at the Lone Star campus you wish to attend before applying.  If you are already in the U.S., please contact a DSO/International Student Advisor at the campus you wish to attend for transfer and enrollment requirements.

Enrollment at any of our campuses involves three processes: admission, advising and course registration. 

If you are currently an F-1 International Student and desire to transfer to Lone Star College, please contact the DSO/International Student Advisor at the Lone Star campus you wish to attend.
