Students' Right to Know: Graduation Rates and Crime Statistics Federal law also requires colleges to publish graduation and/or persistence rates for all full-time students pursuing certificates and degrees, the same information for students on athletic scholarship, statistics regarding the incidence of crime on the campus, and the number of arrests for certain crimes committed on the campus. This information is com- piled each year and is available online. Information Regarding Classes Times and Frequency A copy of the schedule of classes offered during each semes- ter or term will be available in advance of the opening day of registration at www.lee.edu. Size of Classes The College Administration reserves the right to discontinue any class for which the enrollment is too small to justify its continuation during a particular semester. Class cancella- tions will be posted in buildings and/or at www.lee.edu. Graduate Guarantee Program Transfer Credit Lee College guarantees to its Associate of Arts and Associate of Science graduates that course credits will transfer to other public supported Texas colleges or universities provided the following conditions are met: 1. Transferability means acceptance of credit toward a spe- cific major and degree at a specific institution. These three components must be identified by the student during the application for admission process prior to the first semester of enrollment at Lee College. 2. As stated in the general undergraduate catalog of the receiving institution, limitations apply to the total num- ber of credits accepted in transfer, grades required, rele- vant grade point average, and duration of transferability. 3. Transferability refers to courses in a written transfer de- gree plan filed in a student's file at Lee College. 4. Only college-level courses with Lower Division Aca- demic Course Guide Manual approved numbers are in- cluded in this guarantee. If all the above conditions are met, and a course or courses are not accepted by a receiving institution in transfer, the student must notify the appropriate instructional dean at Lee College within 10 days of notice of transfer credit denial so the "Transfer Dispute Resolution" process can be initiated. If course denial is not resolved, Lee College will allow the student to take tuition free alternate courses, semester hour for semester hour, that are acceptable to the receiving insti- tution within a one year period from granting of a degree at Lee College. The graduate is responsible for payment of any fees, books, or other course-related expenses associated with the alternate course or courses. Transfer Limitation Notice Texas public universities may limit the transfer of lower- divi- sion credit hours earned by a student. All coursework at Lee College is considered lower division coursework, with the exception of developmental courses (see Developmental Coursework in Chapter 6). A Texas public university may elect to limit lower division transfer credit to 66 hours maximum. However, exceptions are sometimes made at some institutions. All students in- tending to transfer should work carefully with Lee College advisors and advisors at each desired transfer institution to assist them in making wise enrollment choices. Further, courses designed for workforce education may have limited transfer value toward a bachelor's degree. These courses are taken from the Workforce Education Course Manual published by the state and are used in certificate and AAS plans; WECM courses are not required in degree plans intended for transfer (all AA, AS, and AAT plans). De- gree programs designed to streamline the acquisition of a bachelor's degree for earners of AAS degrees have been ini- tiated at some Texas universities. Students should contact the Counseling Center for more in- formation about any issue related to transfer. Transfer Dispute Resolution The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board provides a formal procedure for resolution of transfer disputes for lower-division courses offered by Texas public colleges and universities. Students have the right to appeal denial of credit under this policy. The policy can be viewed at the Co- ordinating Board's website, www.thecb.state.tx.us. Students who would like to question transcript evaluations done by Lee College should first contact the Registrar. If still dissatisfied, the student should see the Vice President of Stu- dent Affairs.
