Q: When does financial aid or grant money come in? Does the money due get directly paid or does the money go into an account for you to pay?

The funds are applied to your tuition bill first, and if you have any funds left over they will come directly to you either through direct deposit or a debit card through BankMobile. Please visit that link for more information, or contact our Financial Aid department directly.
Q:How Do I Access Moodle?

Q: For people who got the Oregon Promise cut, will they still get the 2 years payed, or are they just getting a loss?
A: Due to state funding limitations, Oregon's Student Access Commission (OSAC) lowered the Family Expected Contribution (FEC) for grant applicants, making a small group of students ineligible for the grant even though they may have been told in Spring that they would be eligible. More information can be found here, under the heading "Awarding Update for 2020". This decision does not impact Federal Financial Aid or other grants and scholarships. If there are any updates to this ruling, students will be notified by OSAC.
Q: How do I add the First Year Experience Class to my schedule?
A: View our First Year Experience (FYE) page. Under the orange "Welcome to Lane!" at the top, you'll see the step by step instructions
Q: Is there a recommended number of credits you should take your first term?
A: If you want to complete your 90 credit degree you will need on average 15 credits per term or 45 credits per year. In the end, it is important for the students to meet with an Academic Advisor to discuss what their goals are, what math or writing skills they have, etc. Each student follows his/her own path.
Q: Is the Moodle and myLane login the same?
Q: How can I get a webcam?
A: You can purchase one through the Titan Store, Internet, or locally.
Q: Do students still need to buy course materials at the Titan store or will instructors provide materials by email?
A: The Titan Store is one option through which you can get your course materials. Another option is Open Educational Resources that may have course materials for a class you are taking. Your professor may also provide course materials directly.
