Student Life Counseling and Advising The Lee College Counseling Center and Veterans Center professionals introduce students to college requirements and expectations. Through assessment, orientation, and academic counseling and advising, they will evaluate students' skill levels, help them become familiar with programs and services, and teach them how to utilize degree plans, catalogs, and schedules to select appropriate courses. Using the information provided, students will be able to: 1. Apply what they know about their likes, interests, and dreams to plan an educational course of action. 2. Select classes for a certificate, associate degree, and/or transfer programs. 3. Better understand the terminology associated with college programs. 4. Discuss options and consequences when considering dropping a course(s). The Counseling Center and Veterans Center are located in Moler Hall. The Center is open Mondays/Tuesdays 7:30 am to 7:30 pm; Wednesdays 7:30 am to 5:00 pm; Thursdays 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Fridays 7:30 am to 12:30 pm. If you have questions or would like to make an appointment, please contact us at 281.425.6384 or email us at: A counselor is also available in Bonner Hall to provide dayto-day assistance to students enrolled in developmental coursework with curriculum and individual concerns. Students may also drop by the Student Success Center in the Student Center to receive advising and assistance with myLC accounts. Students with Disabilities The Disability Service Office at Lee College is available to assist individuals with a disability with accommodations and services that will improve their access and integration into college and college related activities. The Counselor for Students with Disabilities works with faculty, staff, and students to ensure equal access to all programs. Individuals needing special services should meet with Counselor for Students with Disabilities in the Counseling Center in Moler Hall to request any assistance or accommodations. For more information or to set up a meeting, students can call 281.425.6384. 38 Transfer of Courses to Senior Colleges The credits earned at Lee College in academic courses are generally accepted by other accredited colleges and universities to satisfy specific course requirements or count as electives. Students are responsible for knowing the requirements associated with the degrees they seek for enrolling in courses that fit into degree programs and for taking courses in proper sequence to ensure orderly progression of work. Students planning to transfer to four-year schools should be aware that each senior college determines its own list of courses required for each degree it offers, and different colleges require different courses for the same degree. Therefore, students who plan to transfer to other institutions should use the degree plan requirements at that institution to guide their choice of courses at Lee College. The best source of information regarding degree plan requirements is the official catalog of the institution. Catalogs are available on the institution's website. Student Class Load Lee College defines full-time students as those who enroll for 12 or more SCHs (semester credit hours) and/or take courses which require 16 or more hours of lecture and laboratory work per week in long semesters (e.g., certain nursing and cosmetology courses). In 10-week sessions, full-time students are those who attempt 8 or more SCHs, in 5-week terms those who attempt 4 or more SCHs. The total course loads of students who attempt courses offered in different sessions (e.g., 5-week and 10-week) will be determined by combining the loads attempted in each. Questions about course loads and/or enrollment verification may be addressed to the Admissions and Records Office. Maximum load: Students may enroll for as many as eighteen SCHs each long semester or 7 SCHs each summer session. Because of state laws, students may only enroll in a maximum of 3 SCHs during a holiday or mini session. Approval to exceed maximum load: Students who wish to enroll for more than 18 SCHs during the long semester or more than 7 SCHs each (5-week) summer session must have approval of the instructional deans or Vice President of Learning. These credit hours include simultaneous enrollment at other institutions for a part or all of a term. If the simultaneous enrollment includes distance education classes, proctored examinations must be taken in the Lee College Counseling Center unless another location and proctor are approved in advance by either the Instructional Deans, the Vice President of Learning, or the Vice President of Student Affairs. External credits resulting in overloads may not be applied to a student's degree plan if the overload was not pre-approved.
