Lone Star College-Tomball’s lifePATH® program provides a unique post-secondary opportunity for adult students to learn social and skill expectations needed in the business world, the academic world, and personal relationships. Students who have disabilities that affect executive functioning can earn various Lone Star College certificates in Occupational Studies, ACT® WorkKeys® Assessments, the ACT® National Career Readiness Certification, and can choose to earn college credit in general Lone Star College credit courses. They can also earn a level-1 credit certificate in Business Operations. Students can exit lifePATH after two-years, receiving a Lone Star College Certificate in Foundational Occupational Studies. All students who choose a four-year lifePATH® option participate in a community-based internship during their fourth year. Students are selected as part of a cohort.
Currently available: Lone Star Certificate in Foundational Occupational Studies. ACT’s National Career Readiness Certification. Level 1 certificate in Business Operations.
The Lone Star Certificate in Foundational Occupational Studies is available only to students enrolled in lifePATH®. The level 1 certificate in Business Operations is available to all students at LSC; however, the lifePATH® option is restricted to lifePATH® students. The credit certificate courses are taught over two semesters (a full academic year) instead of one semester. In 2019, the Texas State Legislature passed H.B. 3165 recognizing Lone Star College’s ability to establish LSC lifePATH® as an accredited Occupational and Life Skills associate degree program. Lone Star College will be seeking this accreditation.
Yes, but not the same as standard course fees.
