Step 1: Apply For Financial Aid
To apply for financial aid, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Include the Lee College school code 003583 on the school of choice option, and complete an admissions application under www.applytexas.org before the financial aid office can review your FAFSA application. The information you provide determines whether you qualify for federal and state grants and federal loans based on financial need.
Step 2: While Your Application Is Being Processed
Once your FAFSA application has been received by financial aid office, students can activate a Campus Logic account by going to lee.verifymyfafsa.com. You will need to enter your myLC login credentials to activate the account. Students may change their password once in the account. Students will submit most documents online through the Campus Logic account. Documents are requested based on your responses on the FAFSA. The Department of Education holds the school responsible for meeting income and household size verification (verification worksheets, W-2s and 1040s)
Once your financial aid award gets posted to your myLC campus account, you will need to do your “Student Permissions.” Also, you will receive an award letter in the mail for your records. After you have registered for classes, you will receive a green envelope in the mail with instructions on how to set up your refund preference through BankMobile.
General Eligibility Requirements:
To qualify for financial aid at Lee College, applicants must:
- Be accepted for admission or be enrolled in a degree or certificate program.
- Not be in default on any loan.
- Not owe a refund on a loan, grant or scholarship.
- Be in good academic standing.
- Maintain satisfactory academic progress.
- Notify the financial aid office of any other colleges you are attending the current year.
Funds are posted to a student account immediately after the census date for all students who completed the financial aid process early. The college has a disbursement schedule for all applicants whose aid process is complete after the start of class. Checks for overages are routinely mailed to the student within 2 weeks (14 days) after the aid is posted. The disbursement/refund schedule can be found on the forms page. From the myLC Campus financial aid award page, awarded students may apply to have their refunds released via a deposit to an existing account or a deposit to a BankMobile Vibe checking account. These funds will be processed by BankMobile.
Fund amounts are posted based on your enrollment status as of the census date or date you were awarded (whichever is later). The following chart will help you determine how much you can expect to be posted to your account.
