Avoid the Stampede – Spring Registration Kick-Off Event Nov. 7-8

Published on: October 30, 2012

To avoid the stampede (and stress!) of last-minute registration, Lone Star College-Montgomery current and prospective students are encouraged to register for the spring semester during “Avoid the Stampede,” an on-campus, express registration event held November 7-8, and extending throughout November.

On Wednesday, November 7, (when registration for the spring semester begins), and Thursday, November 8, advisors, counselors, and faculty members will be stationed in the General Academic Center (Bldg. G) and in atrium of the Health Science Center (Bldg. B) from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4-7 p.m. to assist students in signing up for the spring semester, which begins Monday, January 14.

Students who register during Avoid the Stampede will be eligible for free food, t-shirts, and college goodies. Plus those who register during the event or before Friday, November 30, will be eligible for other big prizes like an iPad and—best of all—free tuition for the spring semester.

Last fall, more than 1,000 students registered at Avoid the Stampede events. With close to 70 percent of students registering before the winter break, long lines for last-minute registration were shorter, certain specialty courses were filled (or were added as needed), and students had a stronger chance of finding a schedule that worked around their commitments.

Students are encouraged to make an appointment with their division advisor or counselor to review their degree plan before Avoid the Stampede.

For those looking to enroll in Conroe at Lone Star College-Conroe Center, a separate registration event will be held at LSC-Conroe Center on Monday, November 12, and Tuesday, November 13, from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in Room 105.

Registration and advising services are available at LSC-Montgomery Monday-Tuesday, 8 a.m.-7 p.m.; Wednesday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.; Friday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m -1 p.m. in the Student Services Center (Bldg. C). Students may also search for classes and register online at www.LoneStar.edu/registration.
