LC Lowers Risk Level to Green

Lee College announced it will lower the health risk level on campus to green beginning Monday, May 24. The announcement came after new guidance was released by the CDC. As a result of a lowered risk level, the College will now be able to provide more in-person classes at full capacity while maintaining an online option as well.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our students and staff back to campus,” said Dr. Lynda Villanueva, Lee College president. “It has been a challenging year, and I am so grateful to our faculty and staff for being resilient and flexible during this time. I’m also proud of our students for their persistence and can-do spirit through it all. We look forward to busy, successful semesters this summer and fall.”

Registration at Lee College is now open for everyone for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021. The College is offering free books for all students this summer and a discount for full-time students of up to $400 on tuition and fees during the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 terms.

All students and employees are encouraged to protect themselves against Covid-19 by becoming vaccinated if they have not already done so. On June 8, Houston Methodist Hospital will host a vaccine clinic inside the Lee College gym for those who wish to receive their first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
