    Academic Support Program

    Lee University is committed to promoting the highest level of academic success for every student. The Academic Support Program offers free tutoring, group study opportunities, and specialized services for those with a verified learning disability, attention deficit disorder, or physical disability.

    Academic Advising

    Undergraduate: You will need to have an advising appointment before you are ready to register. Advising is available through your school or college. Attendance at your advising appointment is required. The advising session is an opportunity to meet with a faculty member in your intended major and receive advice regarding your progress and course selection. All international undergraduate students are encouraged to take GST 201 – Global Perspectives for International Students. This is a 1-hour cultural adjustment seminar designed to support international students as they adjust to life in the Lee community and in the United States.

    Graduate: You will need an advising appointment before you register. Advising is available through your department. Upon your arrival, you should make arrangements to visit your academic department prior to the date and time indicated on your Appointment Time Card.

    Academic Course Load and Evaluation Methods

    Undergraduate international students are required by American immigration law to register for at least 12 credit hours (approximately 4 classes) per academic semester, and graduate students are required to register for at least 9 credit hours (approximately 3 classes) per semester. Grades are assigned at the end of the semester unless the student is performing below academic standards, in which case a mid-term grade report is sent to the student.
