VA Benefits: Getting Started
Are you a veteran and ready to enroll at Lane? Your first step is to apply and determine your eligibility for education benefits through the VA. If you’re using your VA education benefits for the first time at Lane, you’ll need to contact our Veterans Benefits office to set up your VA account at Lane. Each term, you’ll also need to submit a VA term planner and your advisor can guide you through that process. Learn more about the certification process.
As a veteran, you are able to register for your classes before other students each term. Be sure to check the registration calendar to take advantage of this benefit and help you schedule popular courses that may fill quickly. You’ll use your ExpressLane account to register and you can view the registration calendar anytime.
Your Experience Counts
Lane Community College grants some credit for Military Educational Experience. Our degree evaluators review ACE's recommendations, compare them with Lane’s curriculum, and award credit, though we always recommend first meeting with an advisor to determine the optimal way to use those credits for your degree. Learn more about transferring your credits.
