Steps to Enroll

1 - Application

Step 1 - Admissions Application

Welcome to Lane! Start by submitting your application at least six business days before the start of your session. The last day to apply for summer term admissions varies according to the summer session you will enroll in. If you’re applying for fall, submit your application before 9:00 am Wednesday, September 30th.

Once you complete your application, you'll receive a confirmation email. Within one to three business days you'll receive your L Number (Student ID Number) and a temporary password. You'll need your L Number to complete the rest of the steps.

Complete the Admissions Application

To be eligible for financial aid, complete the FAFSA. Apply early, as it can take 4-12 weeks to process aid awards once all documents have been received.

2 - Placement

Step 2 - Course Placement

Course Placement can help you ensure you're successful in your classes. While some students require a placement test to help determine an appropriate Math and Writing placement, you may also be able to use your high school GPA, prior college courses, AP, or IB scores, Smarter Balance scores, or other measures to determine your placement. You may be able to complete your placement testing and New Student Orientation on the same day online. For summer term, the last day to complete this step is 4 days before the start of your session. You’ll need to complete this step for fall by 2:00 pm Wednesday, September 30th.
