Are you ready to start or finish college? Have you wondered how to:

  • Start the college enrollment process
  • Pay for tuition, fees, books, and other expenses
  • Work and attend college
  • Apply to the college of your choice
  • Decide which is the best college for you
  • Avoid long lines in financial aid
  • Apply for a student loan

The Lee College TRiO Educational Opportunity Center will schedule an individual appointment to answer these questions and any more that you have about attending college. We have information on Pell Grants, scholarships, new career programs and more. We also provide information on adult education classes and GED programs.


So that we can assess individual needs, students must complete an initial intake application that will be reviewed by an EOC education specialist. If needed, an education specialist also will provide assistance with FAFSA and college admission, along with other educational services.

The Lee College TRiO — Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Education to assist eligible adults who want to enroll in college. All project services are provided free of charge.
