HOUSTON, TX -- Lone Star College is an open-enrollment institution geared toward helping students start, continue or complete their educational journey. LSC began its spring 2024 semester Jan. 16, but there’s still time to enroll in a course through LSC Next Start.

“Lone Star College is definitely the way to go to either earn a degree or attain some college credit because courses are smaller, allowing you to receive more personalized resources and support to help you succeed,” said Alma Gallardo, LSC-CyFair graduate.

LSC Next Start classes range from five to 14 weeks. Available courses fit various academic and career goals to help students earn bachelor’s degrees, associate degrees, workforce and continuing education certificates or transfer credits to a four-year university.

“Lone Star College’s Next Start allows you to earn a college degree on your own time,” said Dwight L. Smith, Ed.D., LSC vice chancellor, Academic and Workforce Success. “Next Start classes are offered throughout the semester, providing flexible options to ensure you meet your academic goals while balancing your personal and professional commitments.”

LSC Next Start offerings are available in-person, online and hybrid with classes starting the week of Jan. 29.
