Official Notices

Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held at noon on Thursday, Nov. 29, in Room 200A of the Husky Union Building (HUB), at the University of Washington, Seattle campus. The purpose of the hearing is to allow all interested persons an opportunity to present their views, either orally or in writing, on the proposed amendments to WAC 478–160–163, “Waivers of Tuition and Fees.”

SSB 5002 (Chapter 450, Laws of 2007) created a mandatory waiver of tuition and fees for children and spouses of veterans who have been killed, become totally disabled, are missing in action, or are being held as prisoners of war, where previously there was a permissive waiver established for these same individuals. In addition, SSB 5101 (Chapter 461, Laws of 2007) created a new category of specific certificated teachers eligible for the University of Washington employee/Washington State employee tuition waivers. The University intends to amend its rules in WAC 478-160-163 to comply with these legislative changes.

Advance copies of the proposed WAC rules may be obtained by contacting Rebecca Goodwin Deardorff, Director of Rules Coordination, Box 355509, Seattle, WA 98195 or by phone at 206–543–9219. Copies will also be available at the public hearing.

Persons wishing to provide written comment may submit their remarks to Ms. Deardorff at the above address, by email to rules@u.washington.edu, or by fax to 206–221–6917, by November 29, 2007.
