  • Set up and participate in campus groups

Staff and Faculty can use ExpressLane to:

  • View class rosters
  • Contact past and present classes
  • Submit timesheets
  • View paystubs and leave balances
  • Obtain tax documents
  • Submit academic credentials
  • Configure LaneAlert

1. Are you enrolled? You will receive your L number once you get enrolled. 

  • You can get enrolled at Lane Community College by visiting this page: Steps to Enroll
  • NEW EMPLOYEES OR CONTRACTORS: You will receive an L Number and password from your department or HR (sent to your personal email)

2. Do you know your L number? You need your L number to access an ExpressLane account.

  • NEW STUDENTS: Your “L” number is assigned to you directly from the college once you are accepted (e.g. L00234567). You can get it from the administration office, or you can find it in the email sent to you after you have completed the admissions process.
  • If you have lost, forgotten, or are unsure of your L Number, go to the following link: L Number Retrieval Form. If needed, call the Enrollment Services at 541-463-3100 Enrollment Services Hours

3. Did you receive a temporary password?

  • In an email from LCC that says "Account Notification”, you will receive a temporary password for your ExpressLane account. 
  • Check the spam folder if you do not see it.

4. Log Into ExpressLane

5. Create a permanent password

  • Follow the instructions to create a permanent password.
  • This is the password you will use to log in to ExpressLane, Moodle, Orgsync, your student Gmail account, and other LCC websites.


IMPORTANT! Make sure your password is valid:

Between 12-16 characters (no more than 16 characters)
Include at least one number
Include at least one letter

Password updates typically become effective within minutes. However, for some connected platforms (LMS, Library, Planning)  you may have to wait up to 1 hour for the new password to take effect.


Student Help Desk Support (SHeD)

The student help desk is located on main campus in the Library (center building).
