Step 1: Apply for Financial Aid

To apply for financial aid, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Include the Lee College school code 003583 on the school of choice option, and complete an admissions application under www.applytexas.org before the financial aid office can review your FAFSA application. The information you provide determines whether you qualify for federal and state grants and federal loans based on financial need.

Step 2: While Your Application Is Being Processed

Once your FAFSA application has been received by financial aid office, students can activate a Campus Logic account by going to lee.verifymyfafsa.com. You will need to enter your myLC login credentials to activate the account. Students may change their password once in the account. Students will submit most documents online through the Campus Logic account. Documents are requested based on your responses on the FAFSA. Lee College is required to perform a process called verification for those student records that are selected by the Department of Education. You will be contacted via your myLC email to activate your Campus Logic account and upload documents required by the checklist you are sent.

Step 3:

Once your financial aid award gets posted to your myLC campus account, you will need to do your “Student Permissions.” Also, you will receive an award letter in the mail for your records. After you have registered for classes, you will receive instructions on how to select your refund preference with BankMobile.
