  • Go to and search for the program to which you want to apply.
  • Click the "Apply Now" button at the top or bottom of page.  
  • When prompted to indicate how you will be logging in: select, "I have a username and password." This will take you to a new page where you will be asked to enter your LancerNet User Name and Password.

  • You can exit out anytime and finish your application at a later date. To go back to a saved application, click the "Login" button on the upper left corner of the homepage at
  • When all your items have check marks, your application is considered complete. Then, you can click "Submit Application."
