Advising Services for Online Students

Online Advisors

Your success at Lone Star College is important to us. LSC-Online advisors are available to assist students with advising services related to courses offered in an online format. Some of these services include general advising, registration, the add/drop/withdrawal process, and degree planning.

LSC-Online Advisors are able to assist students with selecting and enrolling in online classes. We will walk you through the Advising Process by reviewing your TSI Placement Test scores and/or college transcripts to determine what classes you are able to take. Once the prerequisites are reviewed, we can enroll you if you are unable to enroll on your own.

Online Readiness Tool

The SmarterMeasure Learning Readiness Indicator is an assessment tool that identifies a potential or current Lone Star College student’s level of readiness for studying in an online course environment. Use the tool to measure your technical skills and get feedback on your learning style. This may also be a useful assessment for those who are taking courses that are now unexpectedly online. Use the login information below to take the free assessment.
