Tuition Waivers & Residency Classifications

igkbet娱乐官网This web page summarizes various tuition waivers and residency classifications that may be applicable to students enrolling at Washington’s community and technical colleges.  Information on Running Start is also included.

igkbet娱乐官网Waivers fall into three main categories; those required by law, those required by the State Board and those that colleges are allowed, but not required, to offer (optional waivers). In addition, some waivers are subject to a limitation on the total amount that can be waived by the community and technical college system.

Residency definitions are listed in statute. Some students, who would otherwise be considered non-residents, may be eligible for resident tuition rates.  If a student meets applicable eligibility requirements, they would be classified as residents, for tuition and fee purposes, rather than as non-residents receiving a non-resident differential waiver.

igkbet娱乐官网Note: In 2015, the state Legislature added technical colleges to many of the waivers shown below.

  • Residency classifications are not discretionary.
  • Waivers listed include all waiver programs available for use by the colleges.
  • Colleges have no authority to adopt waiver programs not described here.
  • Colleges have discretion in whether to participate in optional waiver programs and how much to waive.
  • Optional waiver programs offered by a college must be offered equally to students meeting the eligibility criteria as established by the waiver. This requirement does not limit a college’s ability when adopting optional waivers to limit the total number of enrollments in a particular waiver. Colleges may also establish preferential enrollment status to distinct classes of students within these waivers.
  • Upper division enrollments: Tuition waivers applicable for lower-division students are also applicable to upper-division (applied bachelor) students at community and technical colleges. For example, colleges that waive the out-of-state tuition differential for lower-division students must also waive the differential for upper-division students.
