Planned Course of Study
When you complete the online admissions form, you'll be asked to indicate your intended area of study. You will be choosing one degree and one major area of study that fits your initial plans. If you are not sure what degree you want, the "Program of Study Wizard" is a helpful tool on the Admissions page.
You can change your degree and major goals at any time in myLane, under the "myEnrollment" tab.
If you are going to pursue a degree or certificate at this time and/or wish to be considered for financial aid when you begin studies at Lane, you should choose an eligible program of study.
School of Professional and Technical Careers Programs: School of Professional and Technical Careers programs lead to one-year and two-year certificates and two-year Associate of Applied Science degrees. All of Lane's professional technical majors are listed, along with the degree or certificate that is earned when you complete the program.
College Transfer Programs: If you are planning to transfer to a 4-year college or university, choose one of the five College Transfer Degrees listed. Then choose one of the College Transfer Majors listed. (Direct Transfer is not eligible for financial aid).
Personal Enrichment: If you are enrolling in classes for personal enrichment, and are not seeking any degree or certificate, then select "Taking Credit Classes, No Lane Degree, No Financial Aid". This is the last choice on the drop-down degree/program list on the online Admissions Form.
If you choose "Taking Credit Classes", you will usually not be required to take placement tests, and you will not be required to attend Academic Advising. However, you will also not be eligible for Financial Aid.
