Project LeeWay


Students: If you receive a mailing from a business called Student Financial Resource Center, you need to be aware of a potential pitfall.

The business reminds students about the need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), but it also asks students to complete a Student Aid Profile form that costs $65. The cost is not mentioned until section 4 of the form.

Lee College does not require a profile form, nor do students at Lee College have to pay for any Financial Aid applications.

Lee College provides free FAFSA assistance.

A College Education for Low-Income Adults

The Project LeeWay program is designed to promote and facilitate access to vocational/technical education and training at Lee College. It is focused toward low-income students seeking non-traditional careers, single parents, displaced homemakers, and single pregnant women. The program is funded by Carl Perkins basic grant.

We assist students in gaining access to vocational education programs through the following program components: career exploration; study skills; surviving transition; job search assistance; and support services such as child care, textbook, transportation assistance, financial aid resource identification, and tutoring. Students are now eligible to receive credit by enrolling in PSYT 1313 for the six-week class.

Project LeeWay can offer assistance with:

  • Child Care
  • Food Bank (available to all Lee College students)
  • Textbooks
  • Transportation
  • Counseling Services
  • Referrals to Campus/Community Resources
