Types of Degrees & Certificates

Whether you’re interested in transfer programs, associate degrees, one/two year certificates, or non-credit training certificates, we’ve got you covered. Choose your own path to complete your educational and career goals!

Transfer Pathways

Lane is the smart place to start your educational journey. Save time and money by taking your pre-requisite courses here first, and say goodbye to 400 person lecture classes. If your goal is to transfer to a four-year institution, you’ll want to pursue one of our associate transfer degree options (like our AAOT degree) that suits your educational and career goals the most. Meet early with your academic advisor to discuss your goals and create an academic plan to stay on track. Learn about common transfer destinations.

Associate Degrees

In addition to transfer associate's degrees, Lane also offers associate degrees in a variety of career and technical programs, like Nursing, Welding, and Graphic Design. These degrees include Associate of Science, Associate of Applied Science, and Associate of General Studies options. After you’ve applied and determined what you’re interested in studying, you’ll work with your advisor to craft the right degree plan for you. Learn more about our degrees and our programs

Short-Term Trainings

If you’re interested in leveling-up your career but don’t have the time to spend on a full degree, our short-term training programs may be right for you! Explore our certificate programs, including Career Pathways Certificates, less than one-year, one-year, and two-year certificate options.

Apprenticeship

Apprentices start a highly skilled profession through two to four years of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction, all while being sponsored by individual employers. You could even earn your degree while completing your apprenticeship! Learn more about apprenticeship programs at Lane
