10 under these provisions may also be restricted to certain courses and/or sections. Enrollment for Personal Enrichment Students who are not pursuing certificates or degrees and are not earning credits for transfer to other institutions may enroll at the college for "personal enrichment." Students who do so may avoid some placement testing but are not eligible for state or federal aid (see Personal Enrichment, p. 205). Documents needed for Admission to the College Application for Admission To be admitted to Lee College, new students must complete an Application for Admission and provide the residency in- formation cited below. Returning and former students who were not enrolled for one or more semesters/terms during the previous year must also update their Application for Ad- mission and residency information. Applications for Admis- sion may be obtained at www.applytexas.org or in the Office of Admissions and Records. Establishing Residency Status Under state law, students who move to the state solely for educational pursuits are not entitled to receive Texas resi- dency tuition rates. Students who claim "Texas residency" must be prepared to show residence in the state for the im- mediate 12 months prior to the census date of the first term of enrollment. Accepted forms of documentation include records of gainful employment with a Texas address, deed to property in the state, registration to vote, and/or Texas vehi- cle registration documents. Other documents supporting a residency petition, including commercial apartment leases and utility billing documents, and driver's licenses, may also be considered. Dependents of Texas residents may also need to present their parent's tax returns. See the Admissions and Records Office for more information on residency classifica- tion. See also "Tuition and Fees" in Chapter 2. Official Transcripts High school graduates who have not attended other col- leges and who graduated during the past five years must provide an official (sealed) high school transcript (showing date of graduation). Transfer students must provide official transcripts from all colleges previously attended. GEDs earned in Texas will be verified by Lee College; students who earned GEDs in other states must request that official GED transcripts be mailed to Lee College. Registration may be blocked until official transcripts are received, particularly for transfer students. Students must request and pay any fees to obtain these documents. Transcripts submitted to the Col- lege will not be returned to the student. Immunization Requirements The College reserves the right to request immunization records from all students and to place these records in the students' files, should the State of Texas mandate such a re- quirement. The College website contains updates on these requirements. The college is currently enforcing a meningitis vaccine re- quirement (required by state law). Restricted programs of the college (such as nursing) may also have additional im- munization requirements. At the time this catalog was printed, the meningitis vaccina- tion requirement affects most students under age 22, but there are some exceptions, and there are exemption op- tions. Students are directed to the Admissions page of the Lee College website, www.lee.edu, for information. Students can also contact the Admissions office at 281.425.6393 with questions. Registering For Credit Steps to register: • Complete the application process (in person or online at www.applytexas.org). • Determine the need for testing in the Counseling Center. • If required, make an appointment to complete testing in the Testing Center. • First-time-in-college students must meet with a counselor or advisor to discuss their degree plan and course options and review test results. After this meeting, the counselor/advisor will register the student for the New Student Orientation. At orientation, new students will have the opportunity to complete their registration. All first-time-in-college students must complete the New Student Orientation before registration. This includes students who have completed high school dual credit classes. • Once registered, payment deadlines must be met either with full, an approved payment plan, or approved financial aid awards. • Any holds for documents or information needed to complete an admission file or for any funds or items owed to the College must be cleared prior to registration.
