Lamar State College Orange (LSCO) announced this week that the Louisiana State Board of Regents has renewed LSCO’s biennial license, extending LSCO’s status as a Louisiana degree-granting institution from December 15, 2021 to December 15, 2023.

This approval allows LSCO to offer courses, clinical training and credentials fully recognized by the State of Louisiana. For students in the Pharmaceutical Technology, Emergency Medical Technician, Dental Assisting, and Phlebotomy programs, this means that LSCO students can apply for Louisiana accreditation in their respective fields and their coursework and clinical work is recognized as completed for their accreditation.

“Our ability to serve our students as a Louisiana degree-granting institution is a game-changer for our Texas students who want to work in Louisiana after college, and for our Louisiana students who find classes at LSCO closer, more practical and cost effective. This is a rare event for a Texas institution to be recognized by the State of Louisiana, and we couldn’t be prouder,” said Dr. Tom Johnson, President of Lamar State College Orange.

“At LSCO, we find ways to meet students where they are – and in this case – literally. We are excited to be able to serve our current and future Louisiana-based students in this way and prepare them for success in their I would like to thank Thera Celestine, Director of Community Education and Workforce, for her work on this license,” said Kristin Walker, Dean of Health, Workforce and technical studies.

Louisiana State approved Lamar State College Orange’s biennial license for the first time in 2019.
