About Community Education
To provide a variety of programs that educate, entertain, and enrich the diverse interests of our communities.
Education Philosophy Statement
We believe in students as our clients, employers as our most important resource, and quality education as our most important product.
Community Education classes are offered on a noncredit basis. Generally, there are no entrance requirements. Course descriptions will include prerequisite for enrollment, if any. Unless otherwise stated in the course description, the minimum age for Community Education is 18 years, except with instructor approval.
Books and Supplies
Please refer to the course description for courses that require books and supplies. Most of the books and supplies will be available in the Lee College Bookstore
If you change courses, select the wrong books, or your class has been cancelled, you may return books to the Lee College Bookstore for a refund under the following conditions:
- You must have the cash register receipt for a refund.
- You have not written in the book. New books that are written in will not be accepted for a refund.
- If a class is cancelled, you must return the book within one week following the class cancellation.
- You return books in shrink wrap (plastic or vinyl packaging) unopened, in the original package.
- If you drop course prior to start date and return books prior to course start date.
Office Location, Hours and Phone Numbers
The Community Education Office is located at 909 Decker Drive in Baytown. It is open 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Friday.
Phone: 281.425.6311 | Fax: 281.425.6855
To park on the main campus, you must have a parking permit. Community Education students may park in parking spaces that are NOT reserved parking. (Such markings appear on the curb of the parking space.) Instructors will have permits available at the first class meeting or you may pick one up in the Community Education Office. Place the parking permit on the dash of your car so it can be seen through the windshield.
A class is cancelled whenever there is insufficient enrollment three business days prior to the first class meeting. When a course is cancelled every effort will be made to notify all registered students promptly. Occasionally, we aren’t able to reach students before the first class meeting. Notice of a cancelled class will be posted on the classroom door. Processing of refunds takes approximately two to three weeks.
In the event of severe weather conditions or emergencies, it may be necessary to cancel or reschedule particular course sessions. Announcements of emergency cancellations and school closings will be made on all local TV and radio stations. When this occurs, the Community Education Office makes every effort to notify students by phone before they come to class. Community Education classes will not meet if the College is officially closed for bad weather or other emergency.
