Lone Star College Tomball

 

Lone Star College-Tomball is a main campus within Lone Star College, the largest institution of higher education in the Houston area. LSC-Tomball was the result of many years of dedication by community members to bring higher education to the Tomball community. Residents of the Tomball Independent School District voted in 1982 to join Lone Star College and LSC-Tomball opened its doors for students in 1988.

Today, LSC-Tomball serves thousands of students via three locations, LSC-Tomball’s main campus of SH 249, the LSC-Tomball Health Science Building near the Tomball Regional Medical Center, and LSC-Creekside Center, an LSC-Tomball satellite center located in the Creekside area of The Woodlands.

LSC-Tomball students can earn Associate of Arts, Associate of Science or Associate of Applied Science degrees, complete their general education courses for transfer to a four-year college or university, or earn workforce certificates in a variety of areas that lead to high-demand jobs.

In addition to traditional course offerings, fast track options, and “finish early” courses, it is now possible to become “Core-complete” exclusively online! Students enrolled at Lone Star College or any public university in Texas, must complete the Texas Core Curriculum. Core classes taken at LSC-Tomball are transferrable to public four-year institutions across the state.

The main campus is home to LSC-Tomball Community Library, a joint library with the Harris County Public Library system, which houses a wide variety of resources for the community, including a children’s library, as well as a wealth of resources to serve the research needs of students.

Continuing education courses for lifelong learners are also available. Discovery College provides a safe and fun college experience during the summer for students age 6–17. The Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) program offers opportunities for adults age 50+ to take free or low-cost classes and participate in personal interest activities. Preparation courses for the General Educational Development (GED) test are also offered, along with other adult basic education courses.
