The Honors College at Lone Star College offers a wide range of opportunities for high-achieving students seeking to graduate with honors distinction as well as for students interested in earning individual honors course credit.
“The Honors classes deliver a special experience for students interested in getting the most out of college,” said Dr. Katharine Caruso, LSC Honors College executive director. “Students get the advantages of a small college within a college, while still having access to the many benefits of attending Lone Star College.”
Motivated students who are seeking to improve their college transcripts and transferability with challenging coursework across a broad range of disciplines can earn an Honors Associate of Arts or Honors Associate of Science degree.
Each year, a limited number of incoming freshmen will be admitted to The Honors College at LSC as Honors College Chancellor’s Fellows. Recipients receive an award package which includes tuition and fees, book allowance, general allowance and an opportunity to participate in the International Academic Travel Capstone program which allows them to visit other countries and encounter experiences that help them grow both academically and personally.
“This really is a wonderful opportunity for students who are looking to get the most from their college experience,” said Stephen Head, LSC chancellor. “The Honors College’s comprehensive program of study will engage and challenge high-achieving students inside and outside the classroom.”
Last year, LSC Honors College students had the opportunity to travel to China as part of a learning community to further their education by being exposed to different cultures, allowing them to see the world in a new way. A trip to Italy is planned for honors students in spring 2016.
“With so many benefits to taking part in the Honors College at Lone Star College, we are redefining community college Honors education” said Caruso. “Honors students are also eligible to earn scholarships, have access to early registration and special orientations, and take part in small, interactive classes that provide a real sense of community.”
The deadline to apply for an Honors College Chancellor’s Fellow is April 15. Visit LoneStar.edu/HonorsCollege to learn more about eligibility criteria and view application materials for the Honors College at LSC.
