Students in Wash. storm areas to get tuition waivers.

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Washington community college students who are also storm victims won't have to pay tuition for the next two quarters.

The State Board for Community and Technical Colleges voted to give aid to students affected by the early December storms and resulting flooding and power outages. The policy applies to two-year colleges in the disaster areas declared by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Two-year colleges affected by the tuition waivers include Centralia College, Grays Harbor College, Olympic College and South Puget Sound Community College. Students will be given a break for winter and spring quarters of 2008.

Two years ago, the college board waived the out of state tuition differentials for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
