We side with potential over past, think authenticity is underrated, and feel students learn best when they're having fun. We pair French class with hip-hop, biology with entrepreneurship, and religion with health care.

We don't believe there's such a thing as overprepared - so our graduates are career-ready and strong. We're partial to second chances and don't believe there's just one way to solve a problem. But we have a proven formula for students to think more, better, and faster than they've ever dreamed before.

Transfers and Readmission

As a student-focused community, we give you access to everything you need to be a successful transfer student, from new and improved technology labs to learning communities dedicated to transfer success.

Lane professors are 100% committed to your success. We believe you learn best from one-on-one relationships with your professors and counselors. With our low student-to-faculty ratio and small classes, you receive the attention you need to succeed.

You fought for us, now let us fight for you!

Laws dealing with different veteran benefit programs are complex and can change quite often.

Our Veteran Services Department provides essential resources and support to active duty service members, veterans, reservists, guardsmen, and family members with U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs education benefits and services as they transition and learn to navigate through the college experience.

We can reduce the chance of hardship by using our resources. For additional concerns, contact us today!
