GradUP is our commitment to the success of every Lone Star College-University Park student from the time they apply to the time they graduate. We invest in student success by continuously improving our student services, launching innovative, student-focused initiatives, and prioritizing professional development and training opportunities for our faculty and staff. Our message to students is: “You commit, We commit, You graduate”. LSC-University Park is empowered to accomplish our GradUP goals; our faculty, staff and administration are committed to advancing graduation rates to 50% for our first-time in college (FTIC), full time students. It’s our culture to provide all students with access to support and resources to help them overcome barriers and achieve success and completion. By focusing and measuring results on smaller groups, the college can ensure that its plans and actions will lead to growth and success for all students.GradUP promotes the value of earning an associate degree or certificate, including a shorter and less expensive academic journey, and seamless transfer of credits to four-year institutions. In addition, the program communicates the value of alternative academic schedules – like the 3x20 degree plan, which allows students to take 20 hours annually for three years to earn their associate degree. GradUP has become a guidepost for the college’s dedicated administration, faculty, staff and, most important, students. Ingrained in the very culture of LSC-University Park, GradUP continues to grow and push the needle on student success.
