Sponsor Requirements:

  • A completed authorization form must be received in the Student and Sponsored Accounts office prior to registration, to prevent finance fees from being assessed to the student's account.  Sponsored students will be responsible for all finance charges if the contract has not been loaded at the point that finance charges are assessed.
  • All required information must be completed and included on these forms
  • Student must sign a release only if allowing the sponsoring agency to receive Financial Aid award information.
  • Once an authorization has been received and processed, which results in the student incurring charges, the agency may not refuse payment for authorized charges or cancel authorization.
  • If more than five students per term please use, one of the two data loads and emails these to Sponsored Accounts.
  • All changes or modifications to authorizations must be in writing, and faxed to Lane.

Forms:

Bookstore charges:

  • Students may charge authorized bookstore items to their sponsored accounts through the Friday of the sixth week of the term. Student must checkout at the Agency Desk in the bookstore to facilitate proper coding of charges.  Otherwise, the student will be responsible for the charges.  This ensures an itemized receipt.  It is the student's responsibility to provide this receipt to the sponsoring agency. 

Student Responsibilities:
Check myLane/ExpressLane account weekly. If student receives a billing notice, notify the sponsoring agency immediately for a modification to authorization.  If the authorization is not received prior to the student charging and the College's statement process has billed the student for incurred charges and accessed finance charges it is the student's responsibility to pay fees.

  • Ensure Lane has received the Sponsored authorization before first student billing date.
  • Provide the sponsor with information that will result in additional charges being authorized that were not previously covered by the authorization.
  • Provide if required by Sponsors agency an itemization from Lane Bookstore receipt of charges.
  • Check myLane/ExpressLane for account information

Disclosures:
Lane is unable to accept authorizations if payment is contingent upon monitoring the following:

  • Enrollment
  • Satisfactory Academic Performance
  • Attendance
  • Purchase of a specific textbook or supply items
  • Financial Aid awards status
  • Successful completion of class

If these conditions are a requirement then another means of payment between the students and sponsor will need to be evaluated. Sponsoring agencies are billed at the end of the term. Bills are due upon receipt. Delinquency of payment may result in refusal of service.

AGENCY BILLS WILL INCLUDE A THIRD PARTY PROCESSING FEE OF $20.00 PER STUDENT PER TERM.
