Refund Request Information
Refund requests are only considered for circumstances clearly beyond a student's control. It is your responsibility to understand the refund policy. Please refer to Enrollment and Student Financial Services refund information and the Lane Refund Policy for additional information.
The Refund Request Committee may grant a refund for either 50 percent or 100 percent of the tuition, technology and student activity fees. The transportation fee is non-refundable. Classes canceled by Lane Community College are 100 percent refundable. The decision will be emailed to you within 4-6 weeks; you can check your account summary in myLane. If it has been approved, you will see a reduction in your tuition and fees applied to your account. Accounts with less than a zero balance will receive a refund either by check or, if the student has had financial aid, through Higher One; refunds are processed weekly.
Please Note: Dissatisfaction with a class or instructor goes through the student complaint process. Information on this process is through the College Online Procedures pages:
The following are some examples of why a refund request may be approved. Written documentation is required.

The following are some examples that a request for refund will be denied:
