Credit Fees and Expenses

Credit Fees and Expenses

Many classes are still being offered remotely due to COVID-19.  Remote classes are still considered “campus-based”, because pre-Covid, they would have been held in the classroom. As Lane returns classes to campus, there will be more in-person options. 

Fees apply to the following instructional methods: Traditional Classroom (both meeting through Zoom and on campus), Hybrid, Hyflex, and Live Streaming. (Classes that are posted on the schedule as “MEETS/ZOOM” or “NOTIME/NOROOM” are not considered “online” courses. These courses are assessed the fees associated with taking classes on Main Campus.)

Tuition rates, fees and refunds are subject to change with prior notice.

Fees Paid Every Term, by Every Credit Student:

The fees listed below are for the 2021-22 academic year and are effective starting summer 2021 term.

Emergency Fee: $10 per credit hour. This fee was established to cover expenses related to the economic shutdown in response to COVID-19. Federal emergency relief funds will be used to cover this fee. At the exact same time this fee is assessed, a credit will be issued for the exact same amount to offset that charge. Students will not have a balance from this charge/credit. 

Technology Fee: $11 per credit hour. This fee helps pay for technology used to run classes and serve students, ie: "smart" classrooms, online courses, wi-fi, etc.

Fees Paid by Students Taking “Campus Based” classes - Includes: Traditional Classroom, Hybrid/In-Person, Hybrid/Zoom, Hyflex, Live Streaming, Meets/Zoom and NoTime/NoRoom. These classes are remote but are not the same as traditional “online” even if all or most of your work is in a remote environment.

Transportation Fee: $27 per term. This fee is paid by students taking campus-based credit classes, or are an Adult Basic and Secondary Ed/GED or ESL student taking classes at the Main Campus or at the Mary Spilde Downtown Center. This fee pays for expenses related to parking lot maintenance and security, as well as provides you with an LTD bus pass for the term.

If taking credit classes at locations other than at the Main Campus or Mary Spilde Downtown Center only: $5 per term. This fee pays for expenses related to parking lot maintenance and security. 

Student Activity Fee: $61.52 per term. This fee is paid by students taking campus-based credit classes. The fee is assessed annually by the Lane Board of Education, based on recommendations from the Student Activity Fee Committee and the President. During Covid, services offered by this fee remain available, often remotely. This fee is subject to change beginning summer 2021 term.

Books/Materials: Books and materials will vary by class. Please refer to your program or course for specific information on book and material charges.

Photo ID/Bus Pass: You are not required to have a Lane photo ID, but you need to use the LTD TouchPass app to ride on LTD. All students who are charged the transportation fee ($27/term) may request a bus pass called TouchPass to use for that term at no additional charge. See the LCC Bus Pass page for details.

Differential Fees: These are fees for specific degree programs which have higher costs due to specialized equipment and intensive training requirements.
