Lone Star College Promise
What Is the Lone Star College Promise?
The LSC Promise is a scholarship and community service program that provides two years of “last-dollar scholarship” for a college education at any Lone Star College location and is funded by the Lone Star College Foundation.
The application will open March 15 for new applicants and close June 15 for the Fall 2018 semester.
Why Lone Star College Promise
The LSC Promise program is designed to reduce financial barriers to college and provide students with assistance to navigate and complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and the admissions process to attend Lone Star College.
LSC created the program to provide more opportunity for students to pursue and complete their higher education and break down the barriers to earning a college degree for in-district students. Lone Star College is committed to student access, equality, success and completion.
The LSC Promise will fund the balance of tuition and mandatory fees due for students that still demonstrate financial need after all grant and scholarship awards are used to pay for tuition and fees. Books are not covered. It is not a loan and does not have to be paid back.
