Repeating a course for the third time

The Texas Legislature has mandated that funding will be withheld for state-funded college courses when students are enrolling for the third time in a course taken since fall, 2002. Consequently, Lone Star College System is now charging a higher tuition that reflects the extra cost to the district when students enroll in or attempt these classes for the third or subsequent time beginning in Spring 2006 Semester courses. The higher rate affects most credit courses. A number of classes are not affected by the higher tuition rate: Developmental Studies, most English as a Second Language classes and some classes in physical education, kinesiology and the visual and performing arts.
