To ensure that Lee College does not misrepresent its offerings, the college uses guidelines and criteria from state and federal sources so that its programs, costs, and employment rates are consistent with current practices and trends. The college’s programs are based on standardized guidelines in the Academic Course Guide Manual and the Workforce Education Course Manual issued by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Through 2026, Lee College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

Information is disseminated through the catalog, class schedule, and website, as well as through prospective student sessions, new student orientation and financial aid seminars. Students may also access their progress to certificate and degree completion through the advisement audit report available in their individual online student account.
