Lone Star College–University Center
Lone Star College–University Center is a joint educational institution among five public Texas universities. It has been developed by Lone Star College System (LSCS) as a partnership of universities and the campuses of the community college system to provide unduplicated bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees and continuing professional studies to the district service area. Partnerships, seamless articulated programs, collaborative governance, shared facilities, interactive telecommunications, and “first stop” student services provide the basis for LSC–University Center to serve as the critical link for community development and individual opportunity to over one and one-half million citizens of North Houston, North Harris County and Montgomery County.
The five partner institutions are: The University of Houston (UH), the University of Houston–Downtown (UHD), Sam Houston State University, Texas A&M University, and Texas Southern University. LSC–University Center functions as a satellite, or distance, location for the partners to offer classes. In this way, the partners can better accommodate their students in the north Houston area by offering courses closer to where they live and work.
