and success. In coordination with federal, state, and local mandates and guidelines, Lone Star College has established general COVID-
19 prevention expectations below. Campus-specific COVID-19 protocols may be provided to you by campus presidents.

Lone Star College supports students with tutoring, bookstore access, library resources, with access to Office 365 available.

Lone Star College has implemented the following COVID-19 Prevention Recommendations:

On-Campus and In the Classroom

• If you are sick, please stay home.
• You should stay at least three feet from others while on campus.
• You should sanitize your hands regularly but especially prior to entering a classroom and when leaving.
Notifications of Possible Exposure

• If you have COVID-19 please let your instructor know as soon as you are confirmed positive for COVID-19 and email
the College at [email protected].

Lone Star College-Tomball/Creekside is committed to acting intentionally about student success. As part of our
institutional effectiveness efforts, our instructors are assessed in several ways. For the continuous improvement of our
instruction, you are encouraged to provide input for each course you take each semester using the Course Evaluations
Questionnaire, which can be accessed through your myLoneStar account. This occurs approximately halfway through your
course, and you will be notified when surveys are available for completion. Instructions on how to access and complete
the Course Evaluations Questionnaire can be found by logging into your myLoneStar Account and clicking on the
Quicklinks – “How To” Documents. The college deans review these evaluations each semester. Additionally, the deans
and/or department chairs may visit each instructor’s class at some time during the semester to observe the instructional
environment being provided and complete an assessment of the instructor.

Withdrawal Policy:

Withdrawal from the course after the official day of record will result in a final grade of “W” on the student transcript and
no credit will be awarded. Prior to the official day of record, it is the student’s responsibility to initiate and complete a
request for withdrawal from any course. The last day to drop this course with a “W” for Summer 2022 is June 30, 2022
for a 6-week summer 1 course.

If you are considered a first-time college student, a new law was passed in Fall 2007 that limits to six the number of
courses you may drop (withdraw with a grade of “W”) while enrolled at any Texas public institution of higher education.
A first-time college student is a student not currently enrolled in high school and who has never taken a college or
university course anywhere at any time.

If you consider dropping this course during course during the semester, you might want to go to advising prior to
dropping and get information about the Six-Drop Rule.
