Disbursement Information

Award Information - Disbursement Information

After you have received an award letter from Financial Aid and have completed all additional processes, the 2019/2020 disbursement schedules listed below provide an estimated time frame in which you can expect a financial aid refund.

Lane disburses financial aid beginning at noon the second Thursday of each term and, in most cases, disbursement occurs every Thursday thereafter, as awards become ready for payment. Summer term is an exception**

Financial aid is applied to your account and will be used to pay tuition, fees, books and supplies before refunding any remaining amounts. If you provided permission on your Title IV Funds Release to use your financial aid to pay any other charges owed on your account at Lane, those will also be deducted from your financial aid. Any remaining amounts will be refunded to you according to the refund preference you selected when you activated your BankMobile account.

View our institution's contract with BankMobile, a Division of Customer Bank.

Enrollment Deadline Date

The amount of aid disbursed depends on your enrollment level as of 5:00 p.m. on the Monday prior to the disbursement date. Pay close attention to your myLane account to ensure you are in the number of credits you intend to be in by the enrollment deadline date. Adjustments to your enrollment level following this deadline may be made on an exception basis only. The Pell Adjustment Request form is available online.

A Pell Grant Payment Chart is available on the Financial Aid forms page to help you determine a Pell Grant award at less than full-time. You may view the enrollment level requirements of loans, grants and workstudy.
