With student persistence and success their primary goals, the Lee College Board of Regents approved a plan that will save 2021 Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District (GCCISD) graduates hundreds of dollars this fall. Under this dynamic plan, GCCISD graduates who register for at least 12 credit hours will receive an $800 discount on their tuition and fees, while graduates who register for at least 6 credit hours will receive a $400 discount during the Fall 2021 term.
“Approval of this support plan shows that Lee College is committed to helping students continue their educational goals and overcome the impacts from the coronavirus pandemic,” said Gilbert Santana, Chairman, Lee College Board of Regents.
To receive the discounts, students must be 2021 graduates of GCCISD and seeking a degree or certificate. Students must complete the FAFSA or TASFA prior to registration, but the assistance is considered first-dollar, which means it is awarded to students regardless of the amount of financial aid they receive.
To encourage persistence at Lee College, these discounts will continue in Spring 2022 for 2021 GCCISD graduates who earn a C or higher in all of their fall classes.
“As things slowly start to return to normal, we want to encourage students to keep striving for the degree or certificate they have always dreamed of achieving,” said Dr. Lynda Villanueva, Lee College president. “This plan is one way to bolster their dreams and give students a helping hand to persist in their education.”
This most recent plan is in addition to the free books already being offered to all students currently enrolled at Lee College.
The Student Assistance plan includes:
- 2021 GCCISD graduates who enroll full-time will receive an $800 discount on their tuition and fees.
- 2021 GCCISD graduates who enroll half-time will receive a $400 discount on their tuition and fees.
- These conditions will also apply for 2021 GCCISD graduates who enroll in Spring 2022, provided they earn a C or higher on all classes they took in Fall 2021
