Lee College and Goose Creek CISD partner to offer free college tuition for 2020 grads

Baytown, TX – Lee College announced it is partnering with Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District (GCCISD) once again to offer free, full-time tuition this spring for all 2020 GCCISD graduates. Any student who graduated from GCCISD in 2020 is eligible.

“We are thrilled to partner with GCCISD to provide free, full-time tuition again this spring to 2020 graduates,” said Dr. Lynda Villanueva, Lee College president. “When we work together and put students first, great things happen in the community. We hope many students will take advantage of this outstanding opportunity to continue their education at no out of pocket cost to them.”

To receive the free full-time tuition, students must:

  • Be a 2020 graduate of GCCISD
  • Register for at least 12 semester credit hours (full-time) at Lee College for the Spring 2021 term
  • Complete the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa.

The free tuition waiver is considered a last-dollar scholarship program that covers the cost of tuition and fees at Lee College. “Last-dollar” means the scholarship kicks in after all other federal and state grant funding has been applied.

That is, if a student receives federal financial aid, those funds are used first, and then the waiver will cover the remaining costs towards tuition and fees. If the student does not receive financial aid, the Lee College tuition waiver will cover all tuition costs, excluding books.

This spring, Lee College will offer students four classroom delivery methods to accommodate their goals and learning style. These flexible options include online anytime, online with a schedule, hybrid and face-to-face.

To register and enroll for Spring 2021 classes, visit the Lee College website, or attend one of the in-person registration events on campus.

The deadline to register for spring classes at Lee College is January 12, 2021.
