Student Handbook

Dear Students:

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Lamar State College Orange (LSCO), an institution that takes great pride in its excellent academic and student services programs. LSCO offers many benefits to its students, and it is our hope that you will take full advantage of them. To do so, you must study and play hard, always following the “rules of the game.” The Student Handbook (pdf) is designed to assist you in following those rules.

The role of the Student Services Division is to complement the total educational mission of LSCO by offering quality programs and services. Departments within the division embrace a student development philosophy that stresses the holistic approach in co-curriculum involvement. We are committed to helping our students become educated, enlightened, and empowered in ways that will enable them to achieve and contribute as productive citizens in their community and country.

We provide many opportunities for our students to develop life skills that will prepare them for the challenges of tomorrow. We encourage you as a new or returning student to become active in one or more of your student organizations.

We are happy that you have chosen LSCO as the place to pursue your educational goals. If you have questions or problems, whether academic or personal, we are eager to assist you–the student.

Dean of Student Services
