How do I declare or change my major/program of study?
At Lane, students declare their own degree program and major, with help from an academic advisor, during the admissions process.
How do I declare my initial major/program?
The first thing new credit students do is called "Steps to Enroll". The first step in this process is to complete an online admission form. There is a Program of Study Wizard to help you choose your degree program/major prior to completing this form. On the admission form, you will be asked to declare your initial program/major. Later in the process, you will speak with an academic advisor/counselor, and confirm your choice with them.
How can I change my major/program?
It is a very good idea to speak with your academic advisor before making a program or major change. The Counseling Department is available on a walk-in basis throughout the term to help you make academic decisions.
If you receive financial aid to go to school, it is also important to check with a Financial Aid Specialist before making changes to your program or major to make sure this will not affect your financial aid eligibility.
To make the change in myLane:
- Log into your myLane account
- Go to the "myEnrollment" tab
- Locate the box labeled "Student Status" and click on "Update/Edit Program of Study"
It takes 1-5 business days for the change to be completed and up to 1-2 weeks for any related financial aid requirements, if you have any, to be updated.
