NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

COMMITTEE: Higher Education

TIME & DATE: 9:00 AM, Tuesday, August 23, 2016

PLACE: E1.012 (Hearing Room)
CHAIR: Senator Kel Seliger

 

The Senate Higher Education Committee will meet to take up the following charge:

 

                Conduct a review of all tuition and fee waivers and exemptions, as well as tuition set-asides currently in law, and examine how students who do not receive the benefits of either bear these resulting costs. Study how other states treat similar populations, whether federal benefits are available, and make recommendations to ensure the efficacy of waivers and exemptions, and tuition set-asides. Examine current financial aid programs, studying their efficacy, and make recommendations on how to provide programs to meet the needs of all students in light of the recent repeal of the state's Top 10% Scholarship program and B-On-Time program.

 

Public testimony will be limited to three (3) minutes. If submitting written testimony, please provide ten (10) copies with your name on each to the committee clerk.
