LSCS spring 2011 registration to begin Nov. 8

(Nov. 3, 2010) – Registration for the spring 2011 semester at Lone Star College System begins on Monday, Nov. 8.

LSCS has experienced record enrollments across the district, which translates into high-demand for many classes. Planning now and registering early ensures the best selection of classes and times.

In conjunction with the Nov. 8 start of registration, LSCS is also rolling out a new student information system, myLoneStar, designed to provide students with better service, along with a new admissions process for new students.

A Web page addressing the changes, along with FAQs, additional important information and a link to myLoneStar, has been set up at LoneStar.edu/BeReady

The new myLoneStar student information system, or portal, provides students with a way to easily unify their e-mail, campus events calendar, news, secure online storage plus student services including registration, financial aid, grade book, faculty communications and more in one website destination.

Current students and recently-enrolled students may still register online at LoneStar.edu/registration or at any Lone Star College location. New students may apply for admission online with the new, easy-to-use application process found at LoneStar.edu/admissions or in person at any college location.

Once new students complete the online application process, they are set up as a user in the myLoneStar portal, where they can customize their page and register for classes.

Alonzo Graham, first student to use new online admissions process

The first student to use the new online application process was Alonzo Graham, 27, who will be attending LSC-Montgomery in the spring to work toward his associate degree in management.

“My experience using the online admission application was very easy,” said Graham. “I had all the information I needed to enroll right there in front of me.”

With more than 69,000 students in credit classes for fall 2010, and a total enrollment of more than 85,000, Lone Star College System is the largest institution of higher education in the Houston area, and the fastest-growing community college system in Texas. Dr. Richard Carpenter is the chancellor of LSCS, which consists of five colleges including LSC-CyFair, LSC-Kingwood, LSC-Montgomery, LSC-North Harris, and LSC-Tomball, six centers, LSC-University Park, LSC-University Center at Montgomery, LSC-University Center at University Park, Lone Star Corporate College, and LSC-Online.
