Student Life Advising and Counseling The Lee College Counseling Center professionals introduce students to college requirements and expectations. Through assessment, orientation, and academic counseling and ad- vising, they will evaluate students' skill levels, help them be- come familiar with programs and services, and teach them how to utilize degree plans, catalogs, and schedules to se- lect 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 col- lege programs. 4. Discuss options and consequences when considering dropping a course or courses. Check the website at www.lee.edu for operating hours and holiday closings. If you have questions or would like to make an appointment, please call 281.425.6384 or email: counselor@lee.edu. Counselors are also available in Bonner Hall and the Science Building to provide day-to-day assistance to students en- rolled in developmental coursework or those majoring in math, science, or engineering with curriculum and individ- ual concerns. Students may also drop by the Student Suc- cess Center in the Student Center for advising and assistance with MyLC accounts. Students with Disabilities The Disability Service Office at Lee College is available to as- sist individuals with a disability with accommodations and services that will improve their access and integration into college and college related activities. The Counselor for Stu- dents with Disabilities works with faculty, staff, and students to ensure equal access to all programs. Individuals needing services should meet with the Coun- selor 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. Military Veterans and Dependents A Veterans Center is available to assist veterans with their educational benefits. The Veterans Center provides a one- stop shop for services such as advising and counseling assis- tance in applying for VA educational benefits, registration assistance, certification, Hazelwood exemption, and much more. The Veterans Center is available to assist veterans with educational benefits. Students can e-mail the center at va@lee.edu or find information online at www.gibill.va.gov. Questions or comments regarding VA benefits can be di- rected to va@lee.edu. Students must observe the following college policies: 1. Notify the Veterans Center of all enrollment transactions (registration, add/drop, resignation). 2. Enroll in courses listed on their degree plan outlined in this catalog. 3. Complete the "Request for Certification" form each se- mester and submit the completed form to the Veterans Center via e-mail (va@lee.edu), fax (832.556.4004), or in person. 4. Submit transcripts from colleges or universities previ- ously attended. 5. Submit military transcripts (SMART or ART). Lee College does not determine students' eligibility to re- ceive VA benefits. The College's role in the VA benefit process is to certify the enrollment status of students who have served in the U.S. military forces. Transfer of Courses to Senior Colleges The credits earned at Lee College in academic courses are generally accepted by other accredited colleges and univer- sities to satisfy specific course requirements or count as elec- tives. Students are responsible for knowing the requirements associated with the degrees they seek for en- rolling in courses that fit into degree programs and for tak- ing 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 col- leges require different courses for the same degree. There- fore, 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. 36
