First Time in College Online New Student Orientation

Welcome new Lane students! If this is your first time in college (includes those who earned college credit through Lane, another college, or Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate while still in high school) please review the information below.

Before completing your online New Student Orientation, make sure you have applied for admissions to Lane and completed course placement via our Steps to Enroll. If you need help with the Steps to Enroll, please contact Admissions.

If you earned college credit during high school not from Lane Community College, please submit a copy of your unofficial college or AP/IB transcripts to your advising team so they can best advise you on your first term of enrollment. If you plan to earn a degree or certificate from Lane, please submit official transcripts to Enrollment Services as well. 

One more thing before you complete your New Student Orientation. Lane wants to address any concerns, feedback, and complaints you have about any aspect of your education here. For more information about different types of concerns, please view More Information About Concerns. To report an incident/concern, give feedback, or make a complaint, please use this Report Form. When on Lane's main or downtown campus, you can also call Public Safety at 541-463-5555 for emergency assistance.
