Register for Mini-mester Courses
Current LSC Students can register for mini-mester courses through myLoneStar.
Students from other colleges and universities must apply to Lone Star College before class registration. Follow the Transfer to LSC admission process, then register for a mini-mester course.
Please note: If registration has closed, but the desired class is both open and hasn't started, contact an advisor for assistance. And because of the robust mini-mester schedule, students are only advised to enroll in one mini-mester class at a time. To enroll in multiple classes, please contact your program dean.
