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. 

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