EMERGENCY RULES

BELLEVUE COMMUNITY COLLEGES

[Filed October 27, 1997, 10:48 a.m.]

Date of Adoption: October 22, 1997.

Purpose: To amend WAC 132H-160-052 Tuition and fee waivers, in order to eliminate incorrect reference to WAC 132H-160-053 and replace it with general language establishing waivers in accordance with state statutes.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 132H-160-052 Tuition and fee waivers.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 128B.50.140 [28B.50.140].

Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.

Reasons for this Finding: Publication of the student schedule is due at the press on October 22. Information for students regarding tuition waivers is published in the schedule and WAC 132H-160-052 provides an incorrect reference for students for authority for waivers. In order to grant waivers to students, the board of trustees should have the correct authority stated in the WAC.
