Free Tuition for Summer 2020

Waiving Summer Tuition, Fees and Books

Lee College is waiving tuition, electronic books, and fees for qualifying students!


To qualify for the summer tuition waiver, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Eligibility is contingent on completing the FAFSA for the 2019-2020 aid year and the 2020-2021 aid year.

In addition to the FAFSA, you are eligible if:

  • You are an in-district student.
  • You attended Lee College in Spring 2020.
  • You are a graduate of our service area high schools in the 2019-2020 academic year.
  • You have been displaced or suffered a loss of income due to COVID-19.

If you believe you are ineligible to complete the FAFSA, you may still be eligible for the summer tuition waiver; please contact our Financial Aid Director, Felipe Leal, at for additional options.

Unsure if you qualify, please visit our FAQ.  If you’re still unsure, chat with us, and we will talk with you to help make the determination.
