WAC 250-60-070

Application procedure and selection.

(1) Student. In order to be eligible for a mathematics/science loan, a student must:
(a) Meet all program eligibility requirements as established by program regulations and guidelines.
(b) Submit annually, in accordance with institutional and board deadlines, a completed mathematics/science loan application form.
(c) Meet institutional requirements for the submission of a financial aid form or comparable financial aid status documents.
(2) Academic certification:
(a) The designated academic official must certify that the applicant satisfies the grade point average and approved academic program requirements of the mathematics/science loan program.
(b) The institution may prioritize eligible applicants in terms of academic [success] [achievement], degree of financial need, appropriateness of educational program, and/or promise of teaching success as demonstrated by successful completion of objective institutional teacher education requirements.
(c) Notwithstanding financial need ranking criteria, otherwise eligible renewal loan applicants may be awarded subsequent mathematics/science loans up to their demonstrated financial need (within program limits).
(3) Criteria for institutional determination of financial need and the making of awards:
(a) Budgetary costs will be determined by the institution subject to approval by the higher education coordinating board. [In view of the self-help nature of this program, the state work-study advisory committee will review each budget for reasonableness and make recommendations to the council for approval or disapproval.]
(b) Total applicant resources shall be determined according to the congressional methodology system of need analysis. Institutional financial aid officers may make reasonable adjustments to the computed total applicant resources if individual circumstances warrant such adjustments. In addition, nonliquid assets in the form of equity in the primary residence and net worth of business or farm may be disregarded in the computation of total applicant resources.
Any adjustments must be documented and placed in the student's financial aid file.
(c) The mathematics/science loan award shall be designed in such a manner that the sum total of financial aid awarded any one student will not exceed the difference between the total applicant's resources and the budgetary cost of education.
(d) In the case of students attending private institutions, all state funds, when combined, may not exceed the nontuition and required fees portion of the student's budgetary cost.
(4) Impact of student withdrawal:
(a) Should a student recipient leave school by reason of failure or withdrawal at the end of the grading period, the unused portion of the loan will remain with the state [where it will be credited to borrower's account as a prepayment].
(b) Should a student totally withdraw from school during a term in which a mathematics/science loan had been disbursed, the following rules shall prevail:
(i) The student's eligibility for the mathematics/science loan program is terminated and no further disbursements under the program may be made without written approval of the higher education coordinating board.
(ii) If the student is entitled to a refund from the institution, that portion of the refund attributable (on a proportionate basis) to the mathematics/science loan program will be refunded to the higher education coordinating board where it will be credited to the borrower's loan account as an early repayment.
(iii) A student may regain eligibility by [repaying the loan amount owed for the academic term (of withdrawal) or by] special appeal for reinstatement to the [post secondary] institution with the concurrence of the board.
[Statutory Authority: RCW 28B.15.760. WSR 88-10-003 (Order 4/88, Resolution No. 88-11), § 250-60-070, filed 4/21/88. Statutory Authority: 1983 1st ex.s. c 74. WSR 83-24-078 (Order 6-83, Resolution No. 84-9), § 250-60-070, filed 12/7/83.]

Reviser's note: RCW 34.05.395 requires the use of underlining and deletion marks to indicate amendments to existing rules, and deems ineffectual changes not filed by the agency in this manner. The bracketed material in the above section does not appear to conform to the statutory requirement.
