HOUSTON -- Credit student enrollment at Lone Star College grew by six percent from fall 2012 to fall 2013, making it the fastest growing community college system in Texas.

That percentage of enrollment growth is based on a study from Community College Week magazine which analyzed data from the U.S. Department of Education.

"Lone Star College continues to experience amazing growth and we don't anticipate that slowing down anytime soon," said Stephen Head, LSC chancellor. "More and more students are realizing the tremendous value of attending Lone Star College, saving them and their families thousands of dollars per semester all while getting a high quality education close to home."

More than 242,000 people are expected to move into the LSC region by 2019, raising the overall population to 2.55 million.
