STEP 1: Apply for Admission

Whether you are a new, transfer or transient student, you will need to complete the online admissions application. You can apply any time with no application fee.

STEP 2: Request an Official Transcript

To register for classes LSC must have official transcripts from all colleges or universities you have previously attended.  Once received, it may take 2-4 weeks for your transcript to be evaluated for appropriate credit.  Official transcripts can be mailed to:  

Lone Star College Student Records
5000 Research Forest Dr.
The Woodlands, TX 77381

Official PDF Transcripts can be emailed directly from the college or university to: StudentRecords@LoneStar.edu.

STEP 3:  Placement Testing

Transfer students who are TSI Complete or Exempt are not required to take the TSI Assessment, but will need to submit appropriate documentation for verification.  If you are not TSI Complete or Exempt, you are required to complete the TSI Assessment.

STEP 4:  Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination Compliance

All incoming students must comply with the bacterial meningitis vaccination requirement unless they are exempt.

STEP 5:  Meet with an Advisor

Transfer students are not required to complete New Student Orientation, but may find meeting with an academic advisor beneficial to help ensure the pre-requisites are met when completing course registration.  Academic advisors have resources, transfer tools and tips available to assist you in determining which courses will transfer to your college or university.

STEP 6:  Register for Class

Once you have been advised and cleared to register, start searching for open courses using myLonestar.  You may register for classes online or in person with a Student Services staff member. Need help? Contact Student Services for further information and assistance.
