Lone Star College offers a variety of programs and courses tailored to fit students’ needs and their busy lives.
Instead of taking a traditional 16-week class, students can register for an eight-week class and still learn the full material covered in a full 16-week course. The shorter programs allow students with limited time a chance to earn a college education.
“One advantage of taking an eight-week class is acceleration. Students will have the ability to complete core requirements faster toward a degree or be core complete before transferring to a four-year university,” said David Baty, vice president of instruction at LSC-Kingwood.
The eight-week semester for Spring 2020 will run Jan. 13-March 8 (term 1) and March 16-May 10 (term 2). Registration is ongoing and classes are available in face-to-face, online and hybrid formats.
