Lone Star College and the University of Houston-Victoria have partnered to offer LSC-Online students structured transfer degree plans outlining the required courses needed to earn a bachelor’s degree from UHV.

HOUSTON, TX -- Lone Star College and the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), expanding options for LSC-Online students interested in taking courses through the four-year university.

“The Lone Star College and University of Houston-Victoria partnership will develop transfer pathways and co-enrollment opportunities for various baccalaureate degree offerings to enhance the educational experience of students attending both institutions,” said Seelpa Keshvala, Ph.D., LSC executive vice chancellor and LSC-Online CEO. “Students can complete core curriculum courses not offered at the University of Houston-Victoria through Lone Star College-Online without slowing their academic progress.”

UHV offers an Adult Degree Completion initiative to bring back students who stopped attending college without earning a bachelor’s degree. The LSC and UHV partnership will assist them to co-enroll in both institutions with financial aid options to pay for the lower division credits through LSC, thus helping them to complete what they started. Additionally, the agreement will facilitate transfer credits between the institutions to help ensure LSC students are only taking courses that apply toward a bachelor’s degree at UHV.

“The University of Houston-Victoria at Katy is an ideal location for Lone Star College students who are looking to transfer seamlessly to an affordable and recognizable four-year institution close to home,” said Karla DeCuir, Ed.D., UHV interim vice president, Enrollment Management. “Our admission counselors are ready to review credits completed at Lone Star College to confirm students are on the right pathway.”

Once students transfer to UHV, they can earn bachelor’s degrees in biology, business, computer science, education, health studies, kinesiology and psychology close to home. Learn more at

Led by the University of Houston, Houston GPS provides a timely, structured and seamless process for LSC students to earn their bachelor’s degree close to home at an affordable rate. Learn more at
