LEAP is an acronym for Learn- Engage- Achieve- Program. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, LEAP is a TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) program designed to serve selected undergraduate students who are either low-income, first-generation, and/or have a documented disability.

As a LEAP student, you will have the opportunity to utilize specialized services that are not available to the general student population, including a personalized LEAP career coach, a LEAP peer mentor, and individualized math/writing tutors designed for your academic and career success.

Participation in LEAP is limited since the program is only funded to serve 140 students each year. Interested students must submit an application along with all supporting documents online in order to be considered for the program. Participants are selected through a holistic review process and applicants may be called for an interview. Meeting the eligibility criteria and having an interview does not guarantee acceptance into the program. If you meet the criteria for eligibility but aren't admitted to LEAP due to capacity, you will be placed on our wait list.

Currently Enrolled Lee University Students
The LEAP application is open from now until April 15th.

Incoming Lee Freshmen Students
The LEAP applications will be considered through July 1st, though priority is given to earlier applicants.
