Dear Laney Students,
Welcome to the upcoming Fall 2020 semester. Our staff, faculty and administrators are all dedicated to your success, even during these challenging times.
As Laney’s Interim President, I would like to invite you to register for classes if you have not already done so. Most of our schedule is online, with some lab classes in our science and Career and Technical Education programs scheduled to meet on campus as long as conditions allow us to offer them. Open seats will be filling in the coming weeks, so be sure to sign up today!
How do we support you?
If you need a computer, we have two programs that give students the technology they need to study away from campus.
- Students can receive a computer to keep along with 12 months free internet access through the Keeping Students Connected program. To apply, visit our website at https://laney.edu/equitycommittee/wp-content/uploads/sites/390/2020/07/Keeping-Students-Connected-OUSD.pdf .
- You can also borrow a laptop through Laney’s Chromebook Loaner program for the whole semester. You can check one out today at the following link: (https://laney.edu/online-student-services/laney-college-chromebook-lending-program/).
Do you need other assistance?
- Every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, the college is giving away free meals and boxes of produce from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. or as long as food is available. Please stop by the flagpole on Fallon Street.
- Financial Aid remains available. Visit our website at laney.edu/financial_aid for more information.
How will Laney help me after I sign up for my classes? Our support for you will continue after you register, and all of our resources may be found in Laney’s Student Guide to Free & Low-Cost Resources, along with the following:
