Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, officials with Lone Star College-CyFair announced Sept. 15 the largest enrollment in the college’s 17-year history, totaling 23,225 students.

“LSC-CyFair is not allowing the pandemic to be a barrier to a quality education. With all of our student services now available both in person and online, we continue to serve our students in a manner that best meets their needs,” LSC-CyFair President Seelpa Keshvala said in a press release. “We want to assure students that we are here for them every step of their academic journey.”


The fall semester kicked off with online and weekend classes starting in late August and in-person courses starting Sept. 8, but there are still late-start class options available, ranging from four- to 15-week sessions.

Enrollment assistance is available through the LSC Student Outreach Department, which has a virtual “College 101” series of tutorials regarding finances, admissions and campus life. In-person assistance is available with limited capacity through the LSC Student Services Department.
