New Student Orientation at LSC-University Park

Welcome to Lone Star College-University Park

Lion Paw - Ready to Roar!

Are You Ready to Roar?

At Lone Star College-University Park, we are the Lions and we are always ready to roar! We are glad you have chosen LSC-University Park and look forward to helping you start this exciting adventure. To help you with your transition to our college, we offer New Student Orientation programs prior to registration for classes. Orientation is an introduction to college life where you will be given skills, strategies and resources to ensure that you are successful at Lone Star College and beyond.

New Student Orientation is required for all first-time in college students (FTIC).

  • You are considered FTIC if you have never taken a for-credit college course since graduating from high school.
  • If you previously took college credit while enrolled in high school, you are still considered FTIC.
  • You cannot register for classes until you have completed New Student Orientation.

All First Time in College students have access to a variety of dates and times for both On Campus New Student Orientation and Virtual New Student Orientation. Students are only required to complete one session and can decide which option is best for them.
