Lone Star College-University Park offers flexible Next Start classes for Fall 2023

Lone Star College-University Park’s traditional fall semester is already in session, but the opportunity to enroll in classes is still open. LSC-University Park offers Next Start classes available in five- to 14-week formats.

“Being able to select and add an additional class for the fall is amazing,” said Xavier Evans, current LSC-University Park Student. “I really like the flexibility of the classes because it’s easy to work with my busy schedule.”

Next Start classes offer students the flexibility to start their course load at a time that works for them. This is especially beneficial for students who work or have family commitments. These accelerated classes help students complete their coursework in a shorter period. Next Start classes can be helpful for students who are trying to graduate early or who need to complete a specific course quickly.
