Community College Advantages

We understand new students and their needs. We offer support services for students who are first-time in college, but we also support honors and university-bound students. If you are in high school, we can help you make the transition to college with our summer bridge or dual credit programs. 

If you are not college-ready, we will help you get ready. If you want to transfer to a university, we offer academic degrees so you can complete your first two years of college while living at home and even close to work.

Lone Star College System also offers joint-admissions programs at LSC-University Center. If you are ready to graduate, we can help you find a job locally or out-of-state with our career services.
