The National Center for Education Statistics reported that 64% of undergraduate students who started at four-year institutions take six years to earn a bachelor’s degree. Taking one or two classes at Lone Star College this winter can help them graduate on time.
“Lone Star College is a great choice for four-year university students who want to continue their education while at home for the winter break,” said Dwight L. Smith, III, Ed.D., LSC vice chancellor, Academic and Workforce Success. “We encourage you to catch up or get ahead on your college education with us.”
LSC’s Winter Mini-Term provides students with an accelerated option to complete their core requirements faster toward a degree or be core complete before transferring to a four-year institution. The short term begins Dec. 18 and ends Jan. 7 (three weeks) or Jan. 14 (four weeks). Offerings include academic transfer, core credits, workforce and continuing education.
“Lone Star College is definitely the way to go to either earn a degree or attain some college credit,” said Alma Gallardo, LSC-CyFair graduate and current University of Houston student. “Courses at Lone Star College are smaller than four-year universities, which allows students to have a more personalized relationship with the professors and receive more resources and support to help them succeed.”
Registration for the LSC Winter Mini-Term 2023 is now open and courses are available in-person, online or hybrid at all LSC locations. Offerings include accounting, anthropology, arts, biology, business, chemistry, criminal justice, communications, economics, drama, government, EDUC 1300, English, foreign languages, health care programs, history, humanities, math, speech and workforce programs.
“My experience at Lone Star College was terrific because I received so much academic support and experienced new heights I never thought was possible,” said Jacob Huling, LSC-Tomball and University of Houston graduate. “I will always recommend Lone Star College, especially the Honors College. It saved me thousands of dollars by learning from top-notch professors and participating in high-level workshops.”
Lone Star College offers over 200 degrees and certifications and four baccalaureate programs. Visit LoneStar.edu/MiniMester for a complete list of all available courses this winter.
