How do I declare or change my major

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. 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, 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. Academic Advising is available on a drop-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.
