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 Orientation sessions are FREE but students are REQUIRED to register in advance through your Lone Star student account to ensure a spot in our sessions. Seating is limited to 50 students per session so register early and select the best date for you! If your schedule changes, thats ok! We simply ask that you remove yourself from that session so that other students are able to register for it.
Due to space restrictions we ask that students limit their accompanying guests to one additional person during our sessions.
