We are glad you have chosen LSC-University Park and look forward to helping you start this exciting adventure! To help you with your transition to our college, we offer New Student Orientation programs prior to registration for classes.  Orientation sessions will be held at LSC-University Park, 20515 SH 249, Houston, TX 77070.

New Student Orientation is required for all first-time in college students (FTIC). 

  • You are considered FTIC if you have never taken a for-credit college course since graduating from high school. 
  •  If you previously took college credit while enrolled in high school, you are still considered FTIC. 
  • You cannot register for classes until you have completed New Student Orientation. 

New Student Orientations are FREE but students are REQUIRED to register in advance to ensure a spot in our sessions

Due to space restrictions we ask that students limit their accompanying guests to one additional person.

University Park is excited to announce that we will be hosting Family Orientation sessions during each New Student Orientation session this Summer! If you plan to accompany your student to campus please consider attending our Family session in the Governors room presented by a member of University Parks Administration. This presentation will begin the same time as the student session and will be released earlier so you can meet your student when they are finished. We look forward to meeting you at Family Orientation!
