    How does the online classroom work?

    Lee Online classrooms use a platform called Moodle. It is through this site that your course syllabus, instructor, classmates, and class information is uploaded. It is designed with weekly assignments and no designated time to log on, which is extremely useful when you are juggling a full-time job, family & life in general! Portico is another online site that is used to access online profiles, degree audits, registration, financial information and more. Online classes consist of 8-week session format in which you engage a particular subject with the assistance of fellow classmates and textbook materials. Tests do not need to be proctored, and you will not need a webcam or any equipment other than your internet accessible computer.

    Do you accept transfer credit?

    The Division of Adult Learning accepts transfer credit from regionally accredited institutions. Lee accepts accreditation through ABHE and TRACS institutions, as well as credits earned from the MIP, CAMS, and other certified Church of God programs.
