First Time in College Online New Student Orientation

If you are new to Lane and have never been to college before, welcome!

If you've previously attended college go to the Prior College Advising page.

Before scheduling your online New Student Orientation, make sure you have:

If you did not need to take a placement test, and you have writing/math credit from IB or AP scores or another college (taken during high school), you must bring or submit a copy (unofficial is fine) of your scores or college transcript. We need to review transcripts in order to release you to register.

If you received college credit for classes taken at your high school, bring a copy of your transcript from the college where you received credit.


The “New Student Orientation” will not be held face-to-face until further notice.

Please use the New Student Orientation online version and then locate your “First Term Academic Advising Guide”. If you have questions, you can email your Academic Advising Team. If you are unsure of your Academic Advising team, please contact the Advising department
