Lone Star College has joined with WGU Texas to create pathways for LSC students to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree and further their education.

“This important relationship is part of our commitment in helping students and employees advance their education after they complete their studies at Lone Star College,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC chancellor. “We are excited to work with WGU Texas and look forward to advancing student success.”

LSC graduates, faculty and staff may select from more than 60 accredited bachelor’s and master’s degrees in programs such as information technology, business, health professions and K-12 teacher education through the agreement with WGU Texas. LSC students who transfer also receive special benefits including: a 5% discounted tuition at WGU Texas, exclusive partner scholarships valued at up to $2,000, and a comprehensive transfer policy.

“WGU Texas is thrilled to expand its presence in the greater Houston area by providing Lone Star College students a seamless pathway to completing their bachelor’s and master’s degrees and preparing them to enter some of the state’s most in-demand careers,” said Dr. Steven E. Johnson, WGU Texas chancellor.

The ceremony announcing the partnership included opening remarks from Dwight L. Smith III, Ed.D., LSC vice chancellor Academic Success and was followed by Head, Alton Smith, Ed.D., LSC Board of Trustees chair, and Johnson.

Also in attendance were Dr. Seelpa Keshvala, LSC-CyFair president; Dr. Gerald F. Napoles, LSC-North Harris president; Dr. Shah Ardalan, LSC-University Park president; and Valerie Jones, LSC associate vice chancellor Academic Affairs.

“Statistics show Texas community colleges enroll almost half of all students (in the state),” said Smith. “This collaboration creates an opportunity to connect those students; a way to continuing their education.”
