In compliance with this requirement, Lee College offers more than 500 courses designed to provide non-credit learning opportunities for the public and community. Classes are intended to address the changing needs of the community – whether vocational or recreational – and may be as short as one session or may continue for a full semester. Courses begin throughout the year and are conducted at a variety of times and locations. Although a few programs have eligibility requirements, Community Education offerings are open to most interested adults regardless of educational background or eligibility for admission to college credit programs. While courses do not apply toward a degree, community education units (CEUs) are available for workforce courses. Continuous registration is available weekdays in the Community Education Office. Because these programs are self-supporting, course costs are dependent upon materials and instructor fees. Students desiring courses not currently offered should contact the division at 281.425.6311 to discuss their needs. Schedules of classes are published three times a year and made available to the public. Community Education offerings can generally be categorized in these areas: • • • • • • • • • • • • • Health Care Personal Enrichment Workforce Development Computer Technology Space Available Classes Business/Professional Development Small Business Development Center Arts and Culture Online Learning Recreation and Fitness Senior Adult Program Adult Education Program Kids at College Summer Program The Community Education Office is located at: 909 Decker Drive, Baytown, Texas Phone Number: 281.425.6311 Fax Number: 281.425.6855 Office Hours: Monday - Thursday 7:30 am - 6:00 pm Friday 7:30 am - 12:30 pm
