Have a question?

Our Admissions Office is here to help!

LCC is closed on Fridays during summer term.

While you may still be stuck at home during the summer of 2021, you can use that extra time to get a jump start on your education! Lane will help you take that next step with one tuition-free class (fees are not included) this summer. For a 4-credit course, that’s a $480 savings!

What you need to know

  • Eligibility: residents of Oregon who are members of the high school class of 2021 or 2022.
  • All fees and textbook costs are your responsibility. It is estimated that you will pay at least $200. Payment plans are available in myLane. You can also take an OER class to save on textbook costs!
  • This summer, classes are being taught remotely through Moodle and Zoom. Don’t worry - both are free. We’ll provide resources to get you ready before classes start.
  • You’ll need to meet any prerequisites for the course you want to enroll in
  • If you enroll in more than one course, the tuition for your highest credit course will be subtracted from your Lane account at the end of Week 2
  • You can earn a tuition free course for spring or summer-not both. Students that drop spring term after Week 1 will not be eligible for the summer discount


All of the Steps to Enroll including registration in myLane and submitting the Request Form and registration must be done by the following deadlines:

  • Summer term ( even if the course starts in July or August ) : August 22nd by 11:59pm

Determine Your Course Placement Level

Course Placement can help you ensure you're successful in your classes. While some students require a placement test to help determine an appropriate Math and Writing placement, you may also be able to use your high school GPA, prior college courses, AP, or IB scores, Smarter Balance scores, or other measures to determine your placement.

If you're 17 or younger

If you are 17 or younger the date you apply, you will need to submit the under 18 form.

All students that are under the age of 18 when summer classes start are required to submit an Under 18 Student and Parent/Guardian Consent form to attend Lane. After signing, take a picture of it, and submit the picture to the Enrollment Services digital drop box (use your account).

This form is a registration hold called the Signature hold in your myLane - Enrollment and Student Financial Services tab - Register and Books - When Can I Register link. It is required to be turned in before you can register.

Complete New Student Orientation and Register for Classes

This orientation will help you determine an appropriate course for summer term depending on your program of study. This takes about 20 minutes. Brenda Williams can answer any questions about the suggested classes after you complete it.

Class of 2021: Please check with the financial aid office on how this course will impact your aid for the 21-22 academic year if you choose to attend summer term.
