Lone Star College-University Center at University Park to hold open house

Published on: October 05, 2012

Lone Star College-University Center at University Park will host an open house for students interested in transferring to one of the center’s four-year university partners: Sam Houston State University–Northwest Houston Campus, Texas Southern University-Northwest Campus, University of Houston-Northwest Campus, and University of Houston Downtown-Northwest.

The open house will be held Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 4 to 7 p.m. at LSC-University Center at University Park, Bldg. 12, second floor.

Faculty members, student advisors, financial aid and admissions officers from each partner university will be available to answer questions from students interested in transferring to one of the four-year institutions. Additionally, there will be food, games, and giveaways.

P>LSC-University Center at University Park offers junior, senior and graduate-level classes through its university partnerships. Students who enroll with one of the partner universities on-site are able to complete a bachelor’s or master’s degree (or teaching certificate) without traveling to the university campuses.

The Lone Star College-University Center model allows Lone Star College-University Park students a smooth transition process from the two-year college to a four-year university. Specific programs, such as the 2+2 program, allow students to take their first two years of classes at LSC--University Park and then the second two years of upper-level courses at one of the four partner universities, without having to reapply.
