This article will guide you through the basic steps to enroll at Lane Community College.
Here is a link to the Lane website that lists out the Steps to Enroll.
1. You will need to Apply for Admission to Lane Community College
Once you click on this link you will be directed to this page:
Fill out the application and submit it. You will then need to wait until you get a confirmation email (can take up to 2-4 weeks) that you have been accepted to the college and it will include your L number.
You should also receive a separate email that will include a temporary password. This password will be used to access and set up your account.
2. Set up your ExpressLane account
You will need to go to the ExpressLane Login Page.
Enter your L number
COPY & PASTE the temporary password from your email
You will then be prompted to create a new password
Paste your temporary password into "Old Password" box
Enter your new password into the following 2 boxes (make sure password is between 12-16 characters, no longer than 16 or it will not work)
Click to save the new password
Now that you have access to ExpressLane, we strongly recommend setting up security questions to retrieve your password as this is the easiest way to regain access to ExpressLane if you forget your password.
