Lee Cares: Debt Forgiveness

  PDF this page

Lee College students who have financial holds up to $999 with Lee, and who have not been enrolled at Lee since Fall 2019, are being encouraged to re-enroll under an initiative called the Lee Cares Debt Forgiveness Program.

The main goal of this debt forgiveness initiative is to get Lee College students who have left because of a debt owed to the college, to return so that they can graduate with a credential. Qualified students may be eligible to have their debt forgiven.

Eligible students must:

  • not have been enrolled at Lee since Fall 2019;
  • have financial holds of no more than $999 with Lee;
  • maintain a 2.0 GPA;
  • commit to ongoing support services designed to help them achieve their academic goals;
  • have a completed FAFSA on file; and
  • have the means to pay current charges

Students who agree to this contract and fulfill it will have their past due balance reduced proportionally over four semesters or until program completion. The application submission does not guarantee acceptance into the Lee Cares Debt Forgiveness Program. The Lee College Cares Team will review the request and contact the applicant within 10 business days.

To apply for the Lee Cares Debt Forgiveness Program, one must complete and submit the online application (PDF).
