Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The proposal changes the name of "Bellevue Community College" to "Bellevue College."

All references to Bellevue Community College in TITLE 132H WAC will need to be changed accordingly.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The phrase "community college" in our name is widely understood to mean an institution that educates students to the associate-degree level. Since we will graduate our first bachelor degree students this spring, we plan to change our name to Bellevue College to reflect our authority to award bachelor degrees and so it may appear on the credentials of our first bachelor graduates.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 28B.50.140.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Proponent: Bellevue Community College District VIII, governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Lucinda Taylor, Bellevue Community College, A201, (425) 564-2302; Implementation: Gaynor Hills, Bellevue Community College, A102, (425) 564-2282; and Enforcement: Jean Floten, Bellevue Community College, A201, (425) 564-2301.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. This policy does not impact small business.

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. The costs associated are minimal and can be absorbed under normal operating expenses. The benefits are intangible and accrue more to students receiving their degrees from the college than to the college itself.
