Paying for College

Many credit students at Lane receive financial assistance through a variety of sources. Through a combination of these resources, it's possible to pay for direct school costs as well as some of your living expenses. However, it is always your responsibility to know how you will pay for college before attending classes.

These resources can take a few months to finalize, so plan ahead before you attend. The links below will direct you to more information regarding these funding sources.
