Prior College New Student Orientation Advising Sessions

Welcome new Lane students! If you completed prior college credits after completing high school/earning a GED, please review the information below.

Before completing your New Student Orientation Advising Session with your Advising Team:

  1. Make sure you have applied for admissions to Lane and completed course placement if applicable via our Steps to Enroll. If you need help with the Steps to Enroll, please contact Admissions.
  2. If you have not completed a writing composition course with a grade C- or higher at a previous college, your next step before you meet with your Advising Team is to complete the writing course placement.
  3. If you have not completed a college level math course with a grade C- or higher within the last two years, AND you need to take math at Lane, complete the math course placement.

Then, 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. 

Your New Student Orientation Advising Session with an Advisor can be completed via a zoom advising appointment, zoom drop-in hours, email or in person.

If you are unsure of your Academic Advising team, please contact the Advising Department.
