Amount: All outreach sites offering Western Wyoming Community College credit classes are expected to collect the same fees as courses offered on the main campus, unless the Outreach Coordinator in the particular area submits a request to Registration and Records for a waiver or reduction of fees for a particular course(s). In many of the outreach communities, the public school districts provide supplies and materials for our Western Wyoming Community College classes, either as in-kind contributions or for direct payment received from the students of the School District, thus eliminating the need for a course fee.

The procedure to request a fee waiver is as follows:

1. The Outreach Coordinator must submit a request for a course fee waiver to Registration and Records when the course creation is submitted. The request must be accompanied by documentation regarding why fees won't be charged.

2. The waiver request may be made as a one-time request or as a permanent exception. One-time requests are good only for the current year and must be resubmitted each fiscal year. Permanent exception requests will be submitted to the Western Wyoming Community College Board of Trustees when all fees are reviewed. Permanent exceptions are listed below.

3. Registration and Records will submit the request to the Dean of Academic Affairs for authorization.

4. Registration and Records will notify the outreach office of approval or disapproval of the waiver.

Fund: Unrestricted Operating, 10 Fund (General Course Fees) or Unrestricted Designated (Adult Learning)
Who Pays: Students enrolled in any "one-time" course, such as a Topics course or Workshop, if there are any related expenses for this course such as supplies, mailing costs, travel expenses, and the like.

Amount: Varies with each Topics course or Workshop, but in any event, would cover 100% of any related costs of the offering.

Justification: The College periodically offers courses, under a studies designation. This designation is designed to allow the College to offer a course, where there appears to be demand or need within a program, without the course being listed in the Catalog. This allows for two semesters to test the course, and if the course is successful, it can then be submitted to the Curriculum Committee as a regular on-going Western Wyoming Community College Course. In a similar vein, the College also has opportunities on occasion, to offer a "one-time" Workshop for college credit.

The Vice President for Student Learning will approve the fee amounts, and will then subsequently request Board approval, using the Consent Agenda process.

Fund: Designated, 13 Fund (Special Course Fees)
