What Is the Lone Star College Promise?

All Scholarships have been awarded for the Spring 2017 semester. The application will open April 1 for new applicants.

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.
