Our Commitment

We are committed to the success of each and every Lone Star College-University Park student from the time they apply to the time they graduate. We invest in student success by continuously improving our student services, launching innovative, student-focused initiatives, and prioritizing professional development and training opportunities for our faculty and staff. Simply stated, we take extraordinary measures to prepare extraordinary graduates for our community. Here are just a few of the ways GradUP expresses our commitment:

  • Advances student success and graduation.
  • Promotes the value of earning an associate degree, including a shorter and less expensive academic journey, and seamless transfer of credits to four-year institutions.
  • Communicates the value of alternative academic schedules for students who aren’t able to attend full time – like the 3x20 degree plan, which allows students to take 20 hours annually for three years to earn their associate degree.
