Tuition, Fees and Payments

College Tuition, Fees and Payments

When you have registered for classes, your charges will appear in the Student Account Menu in myLane.

The last day to drop a class for a term and not be charged for the class is at the end of the FIRST WEEK, Sunday, at 11:59 p.m., in myLane. Instructors are NOT required to drop you if you do not attend.

PLEASE NOTE: There is NO paper bill sent to students admitted as credit level students, unless you have "opted" individually to have one sent.

Students admitted as noncredit/continuing education students will be mailed paper statements, to the most recent address Lane has on file, unless they opt to receive email reminders.

Refund Information and Deadlines

Statement Due Dates: Payments are due by midnight on the 15th of each month. After this date, if a charge remains, there will be a 2% late fee on the unpaid balance added to your account the next business day.

If a bill is 90 days old, a paper final notice will be sent to the last known address in myLane. It is your responsibility to check your myLane account and pay the bill prior to the deadline. Lane cannot be responsible for final notices that do not reach you.


Statement of Non-Discrimination

Lane Community College is committed to non-discrimination in our financial assistance programs, in compliance with federal anti-discrimination laws, including the petitions for exceptions to the refund process. Nancy Hart, Associate Dean of Student Affairs, Disability Resources, (541) 463-3010 is the ADA Compliance Officer for students and is the designated employee who is responsible for addressing student's questions and concerns regarding disability discrimination.


At Lane, charges include:

  • Tuition charged on a per credit (for credit classes) or contact hour (for non-credit) basis
  • Term fees that are charged each term
  • Credit/Class fees associated with a certain class or number of credits

By adding up these individual costs, you will know your total bill.

How to check your bill:

To view your account, Login to myLane, select the myFinances tab, then select the term in the myAccount window. If you have any balance for any term, both the total "Account Balance" (which includes ALL charges on your account, whether they are currently due or not), and the individual term balances will be displayed.

"Account Summary By Term" shows an up-to-the-minute summary of all charges incurred so far, divided into terms.

"Account Detail By Term" shows an up-to-the-minute detail of each transaction, divided into terms.

"Statement and Payment History" shows the actual statement created by the 17th of the month, and is a snapshot of the date it was created. It will only show account transactions that occurred during the prior month. New charges will not show on the statement until the next billing deadline, which falls on the 15th of each month.
