The Lee College Veterans Center was established in 2011 as part of the College Credit for Heroes program and a grant from the Texas Workforce Commission.

One component of this grant was to help military veterans and those on active duty move as quickly as possible to the workforce by awarding college credit for military experience, education, and training obtained during military service.

Other support services include helping provide peer tutoring, advising, counseling, financial aid, military benefit assistance and outreach activities.

If you are a veteran or a dependent of a veteran our office is here to serve you.

Why Lee College?

With a dedicated staff in our Veterans Center,  we are proud to have the designation as a Military Friendly School and will always strive to provide the best possible service to our military personnel.  Recruitment of any military personnel is based on the College’s positive reputation of providing the best possible service and support necessary to assist the you in reaching your educational goals.  Whether you need assistance with the application process, financial aid, educational benefits, tutoring, or personal counseling, the Veterans Center is ready and willing to assist.  The College does not participate in high-pressure recruitment tactics.  In addition incentives (such as a commissions or bonuses) in securing enrollments are never permitted in our recruitment of military personnel, veterans, and their families.

The College understands the registration and scheduling needs of active duty military personnel.  As an open enrollment institution, students who must suspend their studies to due service requirements can easily return to complete their program with a simple general application for admissions.  As required by Texas state statues, any reservist or member of the National Guard called into duty after the start of a semester as a result of their military demand are given privileges as to not impact them negatively (in terms of finance or their educational transcript).   This may include a full refund for the tuition, a grade of “incomplete” for the course, or a final grade as determined appropriate by the instructor.

More information about services for veterans can be found online at the College for All Texans website (www.collegeforalltexans.com).
