Reciprocity Agreements with Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia. Status Report.
Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board, Olympia.
The Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board renegotiated reciprocity agreements with Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia in light of state legislation curbing and reducing tuition waiver reciprocity. Legislation in 1992 required state institutions to reduce the total amount of operating fee revenue waived by 6.6 percent and allowed institutions to participate in tuition waivers at their discretion. Consequently Central Washington University has withdrawn from the program and the University of Washington plans a phased withdrawal. Students from British Columbia and Oregon who attend Washington four-year institutions will receive full waivers of the nonresident differential of $4,602 to $6,399 depending on institution and level of study. Partial waivers are typical for students from Idaho. Community colleges include a "surcharge" fee established in 1992 in calculating the tuition waived. Total amount waived by Washington and Oregon under terms of the 1993-94 agreement are relatively balanced. Relative balance also continues between Washington and Idaho in amounts waived. British Columbia participation in numbers of Washington students served is expected to be in balance with numbers of British Columbia students served in Washington. Separate sections discuss in detail the individual agreements with Idaho, British Columbia, and Oregon. An appendix shows participation rates for all reciprocity agreements since 1987-88. (JB)
