First Time in College
Application for Admission
The first step to becoming a Lee College student involves completing the admissions process. The Application for Admission can be completed online at www.applytexas.org or in person in the Admissions & Records Office located in Moler Hall. Instructions for completing the admissions process and application can be found online.
If you have graduated within the past 5 years from high school, you will need to have your high school transcript sent to Lee College. Similarly, if you have completed the GED within the past 5 years, you will need to bring a copy of your certificate or results. Please know that a GED or high school diploma is NOT required to attend Lee College.
Proof of residency will be required to qualify for in-district tuition rates and may be required for out-of-district (Texas resident) tuition rates. This requirement is typically met by presenting your Texas ID or Driver’s License with current address.
If you are under the age of 30 at the start of the semester and attending face-to-face or hybrid courses you will be required to comply with the state’s meningitis vaccine requirement. This means you will either need to provide proof of having an up-to-date MCV4 vaccine or related affidavit. More detailed information can be found here.
Financial Aid Application (FAFSA) & Scholarship Applications
Its important to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at least 8-10 weeks before the start of a semester to allow time for processing. You can visit the Financial Aid Office’s webpage to learn more about the FAFSA, grants, loans and scholarships. Students are not required to apply for financial assistance.
FAFSA Priority Deadlines
- Fall: April 15
- Spring: Nov. 1
- Summer: March 1
Students are still encouraged to apply for financial assistance if the priority deadlines have passed. However, students who miss the priority deadline should be prepared to pay for their classes. Payment plans are available. If you pay for your classes and are approved for financial aid after classes have started and payment has been made, you may still be reimbursed.
