First Time Dual Credit Students ONLY for 2020-2021

You MUST attend a MANDATORY First Time Dual Credit Student Meeting. If you signed up and attended a LSC Dual Credit Experience event or attended one of the meetings offered at THS with me, this will fulfill the mandatory meeting requirement.
If you missed the offered student meetings, please see me to get on the list for a make up meeting.  These meetings will be scheduled at my earliest convenience, as there were seven original meetings offered between November and February.

To sign up you MUST:

1. Have received your LSC ID number from Lone Star College and completed the Google form (link above).

2. Been notified by Mrs. Nichols that your testing ticket has been ordered.

3. Be a FIRST TIME tester (FREE for first time testers). Retesting must be completed on the LSC campus. There is a $10 fee for each section retesting.

Testing begins at 2:45 pm sharp in the location indicated on the sign up form, and should last until around 6:00 to 7:00 pm.  The TSI is untimed, so there is not a set ending time.
