Economic Impact

1/5 the Cost of UT Austin
  • State and local governments allocated approximately $76.8 million in support of Lone Star College in FY 200809 and for every $1 appropriated, taxpayers will see a cumulative return of $2.30 in the form of higher tax revenues and avoided social costs.
  • Higher earnings of Lone Star College students and associated increases in state income and business productivity expand the tax base in Texas by about $464.4 million each year.
  • Because an educated workforce produces an improved lifestyle behavior, along with fewer welfare and unemployment claims, the 2008 09 student population of Lone Star College will generate $14.2 million a year in social savings to the Texas public.
