About Our Classes

We are a fairly large, diverse international community yet small enough to make you feel welcome in a friendly environment. Our classrooms are small with qualified faculty and staff dedicated to making your educational experience a value for your future.

Enrollment at any of our six campuses involves three processes: admission, advising and course registration. 

Getting Started

You must have your LSCS-approved medical insurance in place and all of your previous transcripts turned in to your International Student Adviser before you can register for classes.  You must also see an adviser about assessment testing.

Before classes start, you must sign-up for international student orientation at the campus you will attend.

Orientation Sessions

Each campus provides an orientation session specifically for international students. 

  • 2014 Dates
    These sessions occur before the semester begins.  Be sure to verify this date with the International Student Advisor and make arrangements to attend this mandatory session. 

Campus Resources

The resources below can help you decide your program and courses, prepare you for talking to your International Student Advisor and assist you during your time at Lone Star College.  Please note that as an international student only 3 of your 12 credits can be taken in an online course for the duration of your studies at Lone Star College System. Please see your International Student Advisor before enrolling in any online courses.

For campus information, please view the Student Services Web site or contact your International Student Advisor. The maps page provides location information for each of the campuses.  


All medical forms, insurance information and other requirements are on our Medical page.


Meningitis Vaccination Requirement

Texas law requires certain groups of students entering college to provide proof of Bacterial Meningitis vaccination at least 10 days before the start of classes. To determine if you are affected by this requirement, please see the Required Meningitis Vaccination page.
