WAC 478-120-135: Reconsideration of final orders.


(1) Within ten days of the service of a final order from the president or the president's delegate, the student may file a request for reconsideration, stating in writing specific reasons for the request. The request shall be directed to the president or the president's delegate.

(2) A request for reconsideration is only intended to correct obvious mistakes in the judgment or order and should not be used to reargue the case. Filing a request for reconsideration is not a prerequisite for obtaining judicial review, and denial of the request is not subject to judicial review.

(3) The request for reconsideration shall be promptly considered. If, within twenty days from the date the request is filed, the president or president's delegate does not either (a) dispose of the request, or (b) serve the student with a written notice specifying the date by which it will act upon the request, the request is deemed to be denied.
