Variable Credit Classes

Variable Credit Classes

If you register for a course that is offered for variable credit, you need to do an additional step in myLane to indicate how many credits you intend to enroll for. myLane will always automatically enroll you for the minimum number of credits for a variable credit course. It is up to you to change the number of credits if you wish to do so.

Please understand that if you increase the number of credits, the tuition will also increase accordingly.  If you reduce the number of credits AFTER the refund deadline, your account summary will initially show a refund of tuition for these credits, but this will be corrected within 1-2 business days. The refund deadline does apply to variable credit classes. Credit levels cannot be adjusted on Wednesdays.

To change the number of credits:

  1. Go to the "New Registration Tools" and select "Register for Classes" and the term you are registering in.
  2. On the registration screen, click the "Schedule and Options" tab (third tab).
  3. You will see any classes you have registered for. Your variable credit class will have the number of credits underlined. Double click on the number of credits, and you will be able to change the number of credits. 
  4. Once you have chosen the correct number of credits, be sure to click the "Submit" button at the lower right of the screen.
