Published on: June 27, 2013Students can now pursue their education just minutes away from their homes. The Lone Star College-Atascocita Center is offering a variety of classes and programs this fall.
Courses, starting Aug. 26, are designed to fit a broad range of academic goals toward certificates, associate’s degrees or university transfer. Registration is now underway and will continue until the first day of class.
“The center offers access to not only classes, but it also offers student support services such as financial aid, advising, admission, tutoring and a full-service library,” said David Baty, dean of the LSC-Atascocita Center.
Courses available in the fall are accounting, anthropology, art, computers, economics, English, fitness, government, history, humanities, literature, math, psychology, sciences, sociology, speech communications and theatre. To register for courses, potential students must apply for admission to the college online, complete a placement test, apply for financial aid (if needed), attend new student orientation, provide proof of their bacterial meningitis vaccination and select classes with an advisor.
“We provide a multitude of services to help potential and current students register for classes at the center,” Baty said. “We are the closest Lone Star College facility for residents in Summerwood, Fall Creek, Eagle Springs, Walden and other area subdivisions.”
In addition to college classes, the center, in partnership with the University of Houston-Downtown, offers a baccalaureate degree in General Business.
