New Student? >>> APPLY FOR ADMISSION
We’re excited you’ve taken an interest in Laney College. We’re eager to provide you with more information on our great array of programs and the awesome things happening on campus.
Here are a few of the reasons why Laney is a better choice than other institutions:
Laney is Affordable – California residents pay only $46 per credit hour! That means that one 3-unit class, only costs you $138. Private institutions and even bigger state schools are more expensive which means you have to work harder to afford the tuition or need to take out larger student loans.
Laney Offers Strong Programs – So what do you want to be when you grow up? A lawyer, computer scientist, or businessperson? At Laney you can take courses that are transferrable to four-year institutions like University of California, Davis (or any other UC) or to San Francisco State University (or another CSU). Laney can set your foundation for what you want your career to be!
If you’re interested in other career paths, then check out our Career Technical Education (CTE) programs. Do you want to be an electrician, carpenter, machinist, chef, or cosmetologist? If your answer is “Yeah!” then search no more! Laney offers the strongest CTE programs in the East Bay.
Laney is Convenient – Our campus is a few steps away from the Lake Merritt BART Station so getting to class is a breeze! Also, if you work in downtown Oakland, you can choose to walk or ride your bike to school!
