Lake Washington Institute of Technology has adopted Washington State Community College tuition rates as authorized by the legislature and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.
When registering for courses you are obligated to pay the tuition and fees for those classes on the first day of the quarter. Students are encouraged to pay at the time of registration or to enroll in the student payment plan. If you enroll in a payment plan you must withdraw by the scheduled refund dates to receive the level of refunds outlined in the college's refund policy. Students who enroll after the first day of the quarter must pay tuition and fees at the time of registration. Students with tuition and fees that have not been received by the end of the 5th day of the quarter are subject to being dropped from classes. Unpaid balances may be subject to collections and you may be responsible for any collection and legal fees.
Students who officially withdraw from classes within the refund period will be eligible for refunds according to the refund schedule. Refunds will be made according to the original payment method.
Covers Fall Quarter 2015, Winter Quarter 2016, Spring Quarter 2016, and Summer Quarter 2016
