Credit Fees and Expenses

Please Note: For Fall Term 2020 the Transportation Fee is Waived.

For Winter term 2021 the transportation fee has been reduced.

All Other fees remain in place.

Most fall 2020 and winter 2021 classes are being offered remotely due to COVID-19. Classes that are posted on the schedule as “MEETS/VIRTUAL” 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.

Emergency Fee: $5 per credit hour. This fee was established for Winter and Spring terms of 2021 to cover expenses related to the economic shutdown in response to COVID-19. CARES Act funding was used to cover this fee for Fall, 2020.

Remote Learning Course Fee:  For the Fall 2020, Winter and Spring 2021 terms, Lane is assessing a $10 per credit remote learning fee for classes that have moved from in-person to remote learning. At the same time, 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.

Term fees: The following fees are paid once each term, depending on whether you are taking classes on Main Campus, or at one of the outreach centers or by distance learning.
