Learning Community FAQs
Q. So, will I have two instructors?
A. Yes! Your Learning Community classes will be taught by 2 professors from each subject building the integrated course. In fact, professors interested in teaching a Learning Community class must fill out the Learning Community Application providing students with new creative and innovative ways of learning the course subject beyond what is taught in the courses separately.
Q. Do I have to register for both classes?
Q. How do I register for a Learning Community course?
A. It’s easy! Just email CyFairLC@LoneStar.edu to register with your Student ID and Learning Community selection!
Q. How am I graded?
A. Each LC course has its own parameters, but most likely there will be ”community” projects that are graded by both instructors. Some Learning Community courses may have individual assessments or projects that focus only on one or the other discipline. Students receive grades for both courses.

A. Here are benefits to enrolling in a Learning Community
