LSC Foster Care Navigators

 

Mission

The mission of the Lone Star College Navigators is to create a college-wide network of support to assist students who grew up in the foster or adoptive care system or are homeless to achieve educational success by focusing on recruitment, retention, and graduation.

LSC Navigators are here to assist with your needs as you successfully complete your journey. If you are a student who was involved in the foster care system and you're now attending Lone Star College or thinking about attending Lone Star College, we're here for you. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at LSC-Navigators@LoneStar.edu

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board partnered with Sam Houston State University, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), and other Texas agencies to create a short video describing the eligibility criteria for the Foster Care College Tuition & Fee waiver and how it can be used in Texas.  The video is called, THECB Tuition and Fee Waiver.

More information is also located at the College for All Texans website for Types of Financial Aid Exemptions and the DFPS State College Tuition Waiver webpage.

Exemptions are a type of financial assistance allowing some Texas residents to attend a public college or university in Texas without paying tuition or, in some cases, tuition and fees.

To receive a state exemption or waiver follow the steps below for providing verification of eligibility:

1. Foster Care Exemption or Adoption Exemption Form K-908-1003 from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS) must be provided to Lone Star College as written proof verification of eligibility. This form can be obtained from the DFPS staff including the student's PAL staff.

2. Complete Lone Star College's Acknowledgement Agreement for the Foster Care and Adoption Exemptions form. This form can also be found by logging into MyLoneStar > Student Tile > Student Homepage > Links (on left) > Quicklinks > "How-To" Documents & Forms.

3. Submit both required forms listed above to your LSC campus business office one week prior to classes starting. These two forms must be submitted at the start of each term a student attends Lone Star College. Exemptions and waivers are applied up to the Official Day of Record of a term. They cannot be applied to a students' accounts retroactively.

Contact your campus business office for more information or contact the Business Office through Live Chat.
