Notice: Payment is Due at Time of Registration
Students are responsible for paying charges by the payment due date. Students not paying by the due date may be dropped from their classes. Go to myLoneStar to make a payment or set up a payment plan.
- 2018 Winter-Mini Payment Due Date - December 7th

Students may continue to register after the payment due date of a semester before the start of classes. However, students must pay for their classes the same day to avoid being dropped.
Current students can pay on-line via myLoneStar. You can also pay at the business office window with cash, check, or debit card. (We are currently processing all debit card payments as credit. Processing a PIN debit transaction is not an available option at this time). Credit/Debit Card payments will not be accepted by telephone. Payments via wire transfer is also available for international students through Flywire.
Third Party Sponsored Billing
Sponsored Billing is available for students whose employer, or other organization, has agreed to pay student account charges on behalf of the student to Lone Star College (LSC) . Third Party Sponsors are billed after the Withdrawal date ("W" Day) of the main terms (Fall, Spring, Summer). Payment is due 30 days from the invoice date. Any charges not paid by the Sponsor will be the responsibility of the student. Students must fill out a Third Party Agreement form and provide a letter from their Sponsor on company letterhead stating the payment terms.

Collection Agency Fees
If obligations are not paid in full upon notification by the college, these debts may be referred to an outside collection agency and to appropriate credit bureaus. Students are responsible for paying all collection fee charges, not to exceed 30% of the total amount due on the account, and any possible litigation costs or attorney's fees.
Furthermore, all unpaid obligations will result in a hold on student records, diplomas, transcripts and future registration activity. For student account related issues contact the business office at any Lone Star College campus.
