Advising and Counseling
Counselors and Advisors provide new student information and advising on course selection for Lane and transfer programs. Lane counselors and counseling interns can help you manage issues such as feelings associated with anxiety and depression, financial stress, relational issues, and family dynamics. All services are available on a drop-in basis during open hours. A limited number of on-going, weekly personal counseling appointments are available each term. Located in Building #1, Room 103.
When you pay for the credit classes you are taking at LCC's main campus or the Downtown Center, a bus pass is yours at no additional charge! So, you do the math...spend a wad of cash on car payments, gasoline, insurance, and maintenance...or save some money by riding the bus to school. And, you'll arrive at school refreshed and ready for your day, not frazzled from traffic and parking. For information on how to get your bus pass, click on "Bus Pass."

Lane is Proud to be Tobacco-Free
On September 27, 2010, Lane's 30th Avenue core campus became tobacco- free. Smoking is allowed in four designated areas in the perimeter of campus. These four designated smoking areas are in Parking Lots B, L, M and N (West, South, East and North of the campus core). The Cottage Grove, Downtown and Florence campuses are also tobacco-free. A tobacco-free campus is more aesthetically pleasing, welcoming and accessible to all students, environmentally sustainable, and decreases risk of fires. If you need help quitting, contact the Lane Community College Health Clinic to make an appointment and get prescription medications like Chantix at no cost or a reduced cost.
