Grit Summit 2021

Lone Star College-Tomball has become a leader in the practice of incorporating good GRIT into the classroom. The Global GRIT Initiative is a project in which LSC-Tomball will partner with other advocates for the importance of GRIT to the average college student to continue developing ways to encourage good GRIT and share what we've learned.

The first annual GRIT Summit held October 14, 2016, brought together 100 representatives from community colleges, ISDs, and global educational research firms to discuss what GRIT is, why it is important, and what the future of GRIT in the classroom should look like.

Required Advising Sessions

According to Senate Bill 1189, students who have successfully completed a cumulative total of 30 or more semester credit hours, must meet with an academic advisor to complete a degree plan. This should be completed before the student successfully completes these hours. 

Students who have completed 30SCH must attend a required advising session/appointment BEFORE they can register for the following term.

They will be contacted by our homeschool advisor and will need to  schedule an appointment to meet via a Zoom call with an advisor for a required advising session
