International Student Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance & Payment Methods for International Students

The U.S. federal government requires all F-1 visa international students to be financially prepared to pay all expenses, both educational and living. However, Lone Star College offers affordable tuition as compared to other institutions and the Houston-area is one of the most affordable destinations for international students. Additionally, Lone Star College offers payment plans, and competitive scholarships to eligible students through the LSC Honors College and other sources. Unfortunately, federal financial aid is usually not available to international students. Information about tuition and fees and payment due dates is available online. See the Payment Methods section below for information on paying tuition and fees.


Payment Methods & International Wire Transfers

Current students can pay on-line via myLoneStar. You can also pay at the business office window with cash, U.S. checks, or U.S.-based credit or debit cards. More information about paying using these methods can be found here. Payment via wire transfers is also available.
