High School Campus Student Programs
Campus Visits – During these visits, College Connection Advisors meet with a designated group of students who wish to receive help with the enrollment process at Lone Star College-CyFair. This assistance includes explanations of the enrollment process, program offerings and an online explanation on how to navigate the Lone Star College-CyFair portal.
College 101 Presentation – This is the most common presentation delivered in high school classrooms and auditoriums. It covers basic information about admission requirements, financial aid, enrollment steps, programs and a general description of each Lone Star College-CyFair Campus (Barker Cypress, Fairbanks Center, & Cypress Center). It is designed to be highly informative, but brief enough to maintain the attention of the students in the audience.
Application Day – These events are meant to assist interested high school students as they complete the Lone Star College application for admission. This event may be held in conjunction with the Mobile Go Unit and is available to all Service Area High Schools (SAHS).
College Connect Days – College Connection Advisors will coordinate with the Financial Aid and Advising Office to offer workshops to all SAHS. These presentations are commonly given with the cooperation of a Financial Aid representative and Academic Advisor who will be able to answer any specific questions that the students might have.
Like the College 101 Presentation, the Advising and Financial Aid Presentations are highly informative while keeping the audience’s attention.
