Join the Early College program at Lane to get a jump start on college! Follow the steps below to get started.
Parents - please do not complete any step for your student.
Early College students take classes either online or on a Lane Community College campus before graduating from an Oregon High School.
Complete Online Application
The application will give you your student ID number (L Number). While usually processed the next business day, processing your application can take up to five days.
If you already have an L Number, you must still submit this application to take part in Early College. Your L Number will stay the same.
When filling out the application, be sure to choose the "Personal Enrichment" program of study option.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Social Security Number, if you plan to apply for Financial Aid in the future
- A email address of your own. Do not use an email address of a parent.
If you are being sponsored, your deadline may be earlier than Lane's deadlines. Please talk to your HS about their expectations.
The last day to apply for summer term 2022 admissions varies according to the summer session you will enroll in.
If you’re applying for fall 2022, submit your application before 9:00 am Wednesday, September 28th.
Submit a FERPA form
The FERPA release form provides the High School connections office permission to help you with your academic progress and with your LCC account. It also lets us know if we have your permission to discuss your LCC account with your parents and/or high school.
Claim Your Student Email and Satisfy the Requirements of LCC’s Vaccination Policy
The link below will help you with activating your student email address. When communicating with LCC, you'll need to use this my.lanecc.edu email address.
If you're applying for Summer, after you've claimed your student email account in ExpressLane, we'll email you a link to complete the vaccination status reporting form. This link will be unique to you, so be sure not to share it with anyone else. Find the latest information on our COVID-19 vaccination page.
If you're applying for Fall, there is no need to complete the vaccination status reporting form. But be sure to sign in to ExpressLane to claim your email. This will be the primary email address we use to communicate with you while you’re a student.
Determine Placement Level
You must prove your writing level before advising and registration. Your HS counselor and the HSC Advisor may also require proof of your math level.
Writing Placement: Our current policy is to place most HS students into WR 115.
Class of 2023: If you place into WR 115, submit the survey again after your first term of HS is over with an updated GPA. A 3.00+ senior GPA will put you into WR 121. This will save you time and money.
Math Placement: If you do not place in math, you'll have the option to take the free online ALEKS math test.
If you are planning on taking writing and math through College Now courses, still complete the placement survey. Your College Now courses will override the survey once they appear on your transcript.
Complete Academic Advising with the HSC Advisor
If you need more guidance on what classes to take or have questions, please reach out to the High School Connections Advisor, Brenda Williams. You will talk about:
- Responsibilities of being a dual enrolled college student
- Understand policies at Lane
- Look at recommended classes by program
