Student Success Initiatives

Providing Ways for you to Succeed

The Lone Star College System (LSCS) has a variety of student success initiatives designed to help its adult learners succeed.

Achieving the Dream
Achieving the Dream is a long-term national initiative to help more community college students succeed – particularly those students who traditionally face the most significant barriers to success, including students of color, low-income students, and first generation college students.

My Degree Counts
This initiative supports students returning to finish their credentials by assisting in re-enrolling in classes and finding the right strategy to meet their goals.

Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
The QEP is an important and required component of the SACS accreditation process to enhance student learning and/or the learning environment through a specific set of instructional activities. The LSCS has named “Best Start” as its QEP.

Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE, a CCSSE Initiative)
