SBCTC Policy Manual
Chapter 3: Student Services
3.30.00 Financial Aid and Student Employment
The State Board authorizes community and technical colleges to:
- Employ qualified persons to administer its student financial aid programs in accordance with federal/state regulations and institutional policies;
- Write policies and procedures to ensure consistency in and compliance with the implementation of regulations for federal and state financial aid programs;
- Deposit a minimum of three and one-half percent of revenues collected from tuition and services and activities fees in an institutional financial aid fund (see RCW 28B.15.820 and WAC 131-36).
3.30.10 Financial Aid Guidelines
Each academic year, the SBCTC will develop and distribute guidelines to help colleges administer:
- Worker Retraining Financial Aid and Training Completion Aid – Financial assistance to help dislocated and unemployed workers, including displaced homemakers to gain and upgrade skills for employment.
- Work-based Learning Tuition Assistance and WorkFirst Work-Study – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and other low income working parents/students to help in wage and skill progression.
- Opportunity Grant – Financial assistance to help low-income adults reach the educational tipping point — and beyond — in high-wage, high-demand careers. Reaching the tipping point allows the least prepared individuals to complete 45 credits, receive a credential, and increase job skills and knowledge through career pathways (see 2007 Opportunity Grant Legislation, RCW 28B.50.271, RCW 28B.50.272, RCW 28B.50.273).
