Introduction

Located in Eugene, Oregon, Lane Community College offers a wide array of educational opportunities to many different kinds of students. The college offers everything from personal enrichment classes to continuing education courses and associate’s degrees.

Established in 1964, Lane has a rich history of community interaction and involvement. Its Business Assistance Center provides aid to small business in the form of campus employee training and counseling and several other services such as workplace training. The school also offers a public news and jazz radio station and the Music, Dance and Theater Department has become one of the premier performing arts centers in Eugene.

Lane also provides an opportunity for students to participate in both intercollegiate, club and intramural sports and has an active campus life that teaches students valuable social and leadership skills. The school prides itself on providing a quality educational experience no matter what the need of the student.

Academics

Lane Community College provides numerous educational opportunities to a diverse community of students. People that simply want to improve skills such as decision making, parenting or maintaining productive personal and professional relationships may choose to participate in human development classes. These are either individual courses or small groups of courses that help students improve a specific area of their lives.

For students enrolled in credit programs, there is the opportunity to participate in different Learning Communities. Students participating in the Fast Lane to Success program choose a Learning Community and are able to take courses that improve their chances of success in school. Examples include such topics as college success, introduction to college writing, English, algebra, and basic computer skills for women that are transitioning to college.

More and more frequently, students seeking to complete a baccalaureate program begin that process at a community college. By doing so, they save considerable money and often get the chance to stay close to home for the first two years of their college career. Lane offers students the opportunity to do this via five different transfer programs. Students may choose from an associate of arts, an associate of science, an associate of science/business, an associate of general studies or a direct transfer degree. All of these programs are designed to provide students with the opportunity to either begin specialized areas of training or provide the foundation of general coursework that a student would typically take during their first two years of baccalaureate study.

Students may also earn credit via online courses. These programs are a combination of online classes, telecourses, live interactive courses and video conferencing services. Online study is becoming more popular because it allows people that may not have time to attend traditional classes the chance to advance their educations in their own time and from the convenience of their homes.

Lane Community College offers an International Cooperative Education Program from which students may earn college credit from studying and working abroad. There are a variety of places offered by the program as well as courses that may be taken on-campus in preparation for studying abroad. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about their chosen careers from a global perspective.

There are numerous other specialty programs that Lane Community College offers. For students that are interested in the full range of courses and programs offered by the college, the school has both a website and an admissions office that can answer any questions.

Most Popular Fields of Study

Admissions

Lane Community College has an open admissions process and accepts all students that are over the age of eighteen and have graduated from high school or earned a GED. Students that are under eighteen that have either graduated or are still in high school may apply but will need parental permission. Minor students also need to be aware that some courses do not accept students under eighteen and that all credits may not transfer to other institutions. For students that wish to take non-credit courses, all that is required is an application and an email address.

Students that wish to register for credit classes will need to first submit an extremely simple online application, submit a valid email address and apply for financial aid. The school recommends applying for financial aid as early as possible because it may take the school up to eight weeks to process awards. Applicants will then need to take placement tests to ensure that they are enrolled in courses appropriate to their skill level. After completing the testing, students will need to schedule a Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) session in order to undergo academic advising and receive the information, including how to register for classes, that new students need. After completing SOAR, the student may register for classes.

Applicants that wish to transfer to Lane and international applicants should be aware that they have separate application requirements and should thus contact the school or visit the website for more information.

Financial Aid

Lane Community College offers financial aid to students in the form of merit-based and need-based scholarships, grants and federally subsidized loans. To receive financial aid, students must first complete the Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA) available online starting in January. The college recommends that students compete this application as soon as possible in order to allow time for the award to be processed prior to the beginning of the term. Students should be aware that financial information for both the student and family will be required in order to complete the application and should have this information readily available prior to beginning the process.

The Lane Titans are a community college athletics club that plays in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) Conference.

Men also have the option to play baseball while women may also choose to play soccer.

Lane also offers several different club activities and intramural sports for students that may not want to play at the intercollegiate level. In addition to all of the sports options available, there are also physical fitness and sports classes that may be taken for credit as well as an open gym program that is open to all students.
