Welcome to Lone Star College

Welcome to Lone Star College-University Park!

We are glad you have chosen Lone Star College - 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 sessions will be held at LSC-University Park campus at 20515 SH 249 at Louetta Road.

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. New Student Orientations are FREE but students are required to register in advance.  Due to space restrictions we ask that students limit their accompanying guests to one additional person.  If you are taking any classes on a Lone Star College campus, your orientation must be in person. Orientation may be required for other individuals who have never attended an orientation session at Lone Star College. A member of the admissions staff will be able to assist you with questions you may have about this.

Are you ready to sign up for Orientation?

  1. Have you applied for admission to Lone Star College?
  2. Have you submitted your offical TAKS scores, STAAR scores, or other possible exemption scores (ACT or SAT)?
    • Ask your high school counselor for your offical TAKS scores. Turn in your official TAKS scores document to the Student Services office, BLDG. 13.200, to be advised before you take a placement exam.  If you have scored 2200+ in Language Arts and 3+ on the Essay portion and a 2200+ on the Math portion, you will be exempt from all sections of the placement test.  If you scored less than the minimum requirements, you will need to take placement tests in those sections.
    • If you have scores from a Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) such as AP, IB or CLEP bring the official forms to Orientation.

   3.  Have you taken your placement test?  If you are not exempt and it has been determined that you must take a placement test, testing MUST be completed before attending orientation.  This will allow you to take part in the advising and registration portion of the session.  You must complete the Pre-Assessment Activity prior to taking the placement test.  Additional information can be found on the Test Preparation Site.  If you are interested in a review session, visit the Tutoring Center in the University Park Library, B12.802.

   4.  Have you submitted proof of a meningitis vaccination or exemption?  Meeting the state meningitis compliance requirement is part of the registration process.  You will not be allowed to register until evidence of compliance has been submitted and approved.  For information, including how to submit proof of immunization or exemption, visit the Required Meningitis Vaccination website. This is a requirement of state law.
