Lamar Institute of Technology (LIT) is a vital part of the SE Texas community and has a fundamental responsibility to help with this economic recovery and get people back on their feet. For this reason, I am pleased to announce my student-centered COVID-19 vision called, ‘LIT Cares.’ Using multiple funding sources, this groundbreaking initiative provides 12-months of continuous free and reduced tuition to help the underemployed, unemployed, and recent high school graduates who have never attended college before.

 
With federal CARES Act funding, returning students from spring 2020 could also attend this summer or fall semesters with zero tuition/fees. In addition, they may receive crucial wraparound services ranging from childcare, transportation assistance, stress management, course materials, equipment, and tools, etc. Fall 2020 details will be coming soon! Below are guidelines for this summer:

First-time college students(Summer 2020):

  • Summer 2020; No Tuition/No Fees/Small Stipend for Books. Fall 2020; 50% Off Tuition/50% Off Fees. Spring 2021; Reduced Tuition (Only).
  • Designed for working adults (want new skills), unemployed, or recent high school graduates.
