Lone Star College is opening its doors and inviting the community to learn about the many advantages it has to offer during its spring Open House week April 14 – 18.Open House week allows prospective students and their families the chance to meet with LSC faculty and staff to learn about the many educational opportunities available to them.
Lone Star College gives students a pathway to high quality higher education that is close to home and affordable. LSC costs a fraction of four-year universities like Texas A&M or the University of Houston.
78 percent of all Texas college students who completed a degree at a four-year institution were previously enrolled at a community college like LSC. Studies show that students who complete their first two years of higher education at a community college like Lone Star College and then transfer to a four-year institution are more likely to graduate with a bachelor’s degree than those who actually begin their college careers at a four-year university.
LSC offers many academic transfer degrees to help students launch successful careers. Students can also learn about the Honor’s College at LSC which offers high-achieving students the opportunity to graduate with Honors distinction. LSC also offers GED® classes for students to gain a high school equivalency diploma to apply to college, start training, or get a better job.
Each Lone Star College campus will host an Open Door, Open House event which will include members from student services to help with degree options, admissions and the application process. Financial aid information and assistance with the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application process will also be available to help students finance the cost of going to college. Student organizations will also be on hand to share what campus life is like, along with the numerous clubs and intramural sports that are available.
