Welcome to Lone Star College-University Park!
We are glad you have chosen Lone Star College - 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 campus at 20515 SH 249 at Louetta Road.
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. Due to space restrictions we ask that students limit their accompanying guests to one additional person. If you are taking any classes on a Lone Star College campus, your orientation must be in person. Orientation may be required for other individuals who have never attended an orientation session at Lone Star College. A member of the admissions staff will be able to assist you with questions you may have about this.
Ready to Roar is the name for new student orientation at Lone Star College - University Park. At Lone Star College-University Park, we are the lions and we are always ready to roar. Ready to Roar is not a new student orientation like other schools. We do a lot more than give a tour fo the campus. It's an introduction to college life in general, and to Lone Star College in particular. You will be given skills and strategies to ensure that you are successful not only at Lone Star College, but well beyond your time here.
We will be using social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc) as part of the Ready to Roar experience. So if you have a smart phone, you can bring it along and tweet first impressions, ideas you got, questions, anything using the hashtag #upr2r.
You will also have the chance to win a prize by filling out surveys before and after orientation, talking about your experience. The "before survey" can be accessed at this link. The "after survey" and official rules will be given to all participants at orientation (or you can request them from the orientation office).
If you are joining us for a session please ensure you can answer "yes" to the following questions:
3. Have you taken your placement test? If you are not exempt and it has been determined that you must take a placement test, testing MUST be completed before attending orientation. This will allow you to take part in the advising and registration portion of the session. You must complete the Pre-Assessment Activity prior to taking the placement test. Additional information can be found on the Test Preparation Site. If you are interested in a review session, visit the Tutoring Center in the University Park Library, B12.802.
4. Have you submitted proof of a meningitis vaccination or exemption? Meeting the state meningitis compliance requirement is part of the registration process. You will not be allowed to register until evidence of compliance has been submitted and approved. For information, including how to submit proof of immunization or exemption, visit the Required Meningitis Vaccination website. This is a requirement of state law.
