Lone Star College-University Park offers May mini-courses

Registration for three-week courses known as mini-mesters and the 2013 summer term at Lone Star College-University Park will begin Wed., March 6.

The three-week May mini-mester will run May 13 through June 2. Students can choose from a variety of courses in art, biology, economics, English, government, history, psychology, sociology and speech. Classes for the summer term begin June 3.

LSC-University Park offers mini-mesters twice a year. The courses offered in mini-mesters allow students to take a typical 16-week course in just three to four weeks. “Mini-mesters are just one of several alternate ways to earn college credit at LSC-University Park,” according to Julie Gruber, director of student services. Mini-mesters are perfect for those students who are back in the area on break from a four-year college or university to quickly earn additional college credits and get ahead or for those who missed earlier enrollment opportunities, added Gruber.

Students interested in mini-mester classes can visit student services in B13.200 for a complete list of course offerings before registering on-line using myLoneStar. LSC-University Park advisors are also available to assist students with the registration process. Students can call 281.401.5370 or email upadvising@lonestar.edu for more information.
