If Aug. 30 was just too soon to start classes this fall, SecondStart classes at Lone Star College-North Harris are available starting as early as Sept. 11, or as late as Oct. 25. Shorter than the traditional 16-week semester and intended to accommodate most anyone’s schedule, the classes feature anything from a slightly-shortened 14-week semester, to an intense and fast-paced three-week sprint through the coursework.
More than 150 SecondStart classes are available at LSC-North Harris this fall, ranging from the fundamental subjects of math, science, English and history, to workforce-specific offerings such as aviation management, health information technology and welding.
SecondStart classes are available offered days, evenings, or weekends at LSC-North Harris, LSC-Carver Center in Acres Homes and LSC-Greenspoint Center in Greenspoint, as well as in online and hybrid formats.
Even though some classes may not start for several months, and registration may be available up until the first day of class, it is recommended that those interested register as soon as possible. Record enrollments at LSC-North Harris have resulted in an incredibly high-demand for classes and the limited number of seats fill quickly.
Current and recently enrolled students can register by telephone at 281.591.6625 or online at LoneStar.edu/registration. New students can apply for admission online, or at the LSC-North Harris campus or centers.
