Curry, Denis; Fischer, Norman
Policy recommendations on items outlined in Senate Resolution 1975-131 as adopted by the Council for Postsecondary Education on March 3, 1976 are presented. The report also discusses the composition of tuition and fees in Washington, the basis of educational costs as used in the report, and the current and past relationship of tuition and operating fees to estimated educational costs in Washington institutions. An inventory of the tuition and fee waiver programs now authorized by law and the extent to which these programs are used is also included. Both general and specific recommendations are made concerning tuition and fee waiver programs. Statistical tables are presented as part of the report. Appendices present the complete text of SR 1975-131 and a review of those states that base tuition and fee rates on a proportion of educational costs, with an outline of the policies and systems used in each of those states. The Council did not reach a final conclusion regarding tuition and fees paid by nonresident students and the foreign student waiver program. The Council also has plans to study the related matter of student financial aid needs as they relate to a revised system of establishing tuition and fees with an objective of preparing recommendations by Summer 1976.
