Lee College started offering college courses for credit in the Texas Department Criminal Justice (TDCJ) in 1966. Dr. George Beto, director of TDCJ at the time, wanted to offer programs that would prepare an offender for life in the outside world. Dr. Beto contacted Dean Rundell of Lee College, who was a friend of his, and the program was born. Dean Rundell was impressed with the plan its potential and the Lee College Board of Regents agreed to participate in the program with the understanding that the full cost of the program would be borne by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

The academic program began in the fall semester of 1966 with five classes and 176 students. Vocational classes were first offered in the spring of 1967. By the fall semester of 1968, 688 students were enrolled in 25 academic and vocational classes.

Full-time instructors teaching just in the prison extension program were first hired for the vocational classes in 1967. Academic classes were initially taught by instructors from the main campus. Increasing academic class loads in the prison program resulted in the hiring of the first academic instructor working full time in the prison extension program in 1978. Shortly after that, an administrator, located in Huntsville, with full-time administrative responsibility for the prison extension program, was hired, and in the years that followed a full complement of Huntsville-based full-time academic and vocational instructors were hired as well. By 1984, the program was run, as now, as a separate extension of Lee College, based in Huntsville.

Distance Education

Led by the Empirical Educator Center, online learning provides quality education in a non-traditional environment, where the student and faculty member are in different locations. Lee College faculty strives to promote superior online learning through the college's online learning management system.

Lee College offers several options for students who are self-motivated and prefer independent learning. Online learning courses require an orientation with the instructor, either personally or online. Courses are completed during a single semester with deadlines set by instructors for course assignments and exams.

Online learning provides courses in which a majority (more than 50 percent) of the instruction occurs when the student(s) and instructor(s) are not in the same place. Within online learning, there are several modalities, which include, but are not limited to: fully online, hybrid/blended, DigiTex, etc.


Lee College's Center for Workforce and Community Development offers a variety of noncredit programs, courses and classes for individuals who are on a journey to professional and business success or who want to enhance the quality of their personal lives by: learning new skills, acquiring knowledge that's useful in the workforce or their daily lives, increasing their physical fitness level, developing a new hobby or just having fun. Services include workforce training, small business development courses, and community education courses for both credit and non-credit.


There is an ATM conveniently located inside the sports arena. Additionally, near the main campus there are several banks that offer ATMs.
