AGO 1991 No. 16 >  April 4, 1991
COMMUNITY COLLEGES - BOARD FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGE EDUCATION - CONTRACTS - EDUCATION
COMMUNITY COLLEGES ‑- BOARD FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGE EDUCATION ‑- CONTRACTS ‑- EDUCATION 1.  The Legislature has established limits upon community college enrollment.  As a creature of statute a community college must have specific statutory authority to enroll students in excess of those authorized by the Legislature.   2.  RCW 28B.50.140(16) authorizes community colleges to offer educational services on a contractual basis to private and governmental entities.  The students receiving instruction pursuant to such a contract do not fall within the enrollment lid.  However, RCW 28B.50.140(16) does not authorize community colleges to avoid the enrollment lid by enrolling students on a contract basis when those students are treated the same as any other student and pay the same tuition and fees.
