Lone Star College-Tomball, a long-time champion of student needs and innovator of student-friendly programs is offering Late Start courses to accommodate students who wish to begin their coursework mid-semester or want to complete their degree or certificate in a shorter period of time.
Fewer weeks than the traditional 16-week semester, Late Start classes provide students with a second chance to take courses that begin later in the semester but end at the same time as regular classes, and provide job-seekers with an opportunity to augment their skill set or make a career change without waiting another semester.
Late Start classes enable students to “compress” the regular spring semester by slightly expanding the amount of time spent in each class. That way, the same amount of instructional content is provided, just over a shorter period of time.
“In the spirit of always looking for unique ways to provide opportunities for students, we offer Late Start courses, which reduce the days of a course without reducing the hours or quality of instruction. This way, students can stay on track without interrupting their academic curriculum,” said Dr. Lee Ann Nutt, LSC-Tomball vice president of instruction.
The first round of Late Start courses begin January 27. Additional course begin in February and March. Space is limited and demand is high. For more information, call 281.351.3310.
On-site registration is scheduled weekly from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Thursdays, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Fridays, and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays. Students can also register online at www.lonestar.edu/registration.
Lone Star College-Tomball is located at 30555 Tomball Parkway, at the intersection of State Highway 249 and Zion Road.
