    Buy One, Get One deal for Summer, Fall 2021 semesters

    What’s better than getting something for free? Getting two for free. 

    Lamar State College Port Arthur is featuring a buy one class, get one free for the Summer 2021 semester, and will double down for the Fall 2021 semester with a buy up to two classes, get up to two classes free. 


    LSCPA received funding from the recent federal CARES grant to fund this opportunity for any student looking to take advantage of a discounted degree or certificate. 

    “We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to new and returning students,” LSCPA President Dr. Betty Reynard said. “The pandemic has affected us all to different degrees and this is a way that we’re able to help our community come out the other side better than where we started.” 

    This offer is valid until all allotted funds have been disbursed, so it’s important to register for Summer and Fall as soon as possible. 

    Here’s how it will work: 

    • Summer 2021: The tuition and fees for one three-credit hour course (up to $416 for non-dual credit students and $150 for dual credit students) will be paid for every student who registers and pays for one course at the posted tuition and fees rate. 

    • Fall 2021: Students who pay the posted rate for tuition and fees for one three-credit hour course will receive funding to pay for one additional three-credit hour course. Students who pay for two three-credit hour courses will receive funding to pay for two additional three-credit hour courses. Receiving six free hours at LSCPA is a savings of more than $866. 

    NOTE: Once all financial aid (including the BOGO funding) is applied to the full cost of a Summer or Fall semester, any residual funds will be refunded to the student. BUT, the money for the free classes will not be applied until after each semester's census date, so if a refund is applicable with this Buy One, Get One promotion, it will not occur until after that point.

    The cost of tuition and fees for classes for Fall 2021 is subject to change without notice due to changes by the Texas Legislature.  This could impact your savings.

    In order to get as much financial assistance as possible beyond the Buy One, Get One offer, students are urged to complete and submit the 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as well as the 2021-22 FAFSA for fall registration. Be sure to use LSCPA’s school code 016666.
