Spring Academic Semester 2022

I. Policy Statement
Students receiving the Native American Tuition Wavier will be recognized as American Indian/Alaska Native for ethnicity and institutional data collection.
II. Reason for Policy
To comply with Colorado Revised Statute 23-52-105 which states that for Fort Lewis College “all qualified Native American students must at all times be admitted to such college free of charge for tuition and on terms of equality with other students."
For following the policy: all students receiving the Native American Tuition Wavier
For enforcement of the policy: Director of Admission
For oversight of the policy: President
For notification of policy: Policy Librarian
For procedures implementing the policy: Director of Admission
To receive the Native American Tuition Wavier, a student must be admitted to Fort Lewis College and submit the required documentation no later than 10 business days (2 weeks) prior to the first day of the term.
Documentation may include:
The College may request original documents for review. The College may also request validation of information from the Tribal Nation / Alaska Native Village.
It is the student’s responsibility to provide the necessary documentation for the Native American Tuition Wavier, FLC staff are not able to outreach to Tribal Nations on the student’s behalf.
The Fort Lewis College Admission Office will maintain student records related to the Native American Tuition Waiver.
This policy was clarified and updated effective for the Spring 2022 term, a narrow class of exemptions may be granted to students who were previously enrolled students at Fort Lewis College and received the Native American Tuition Waiver under the previous criteria. It is the student’s responsibility to request this exemption, by providing a written request to the Admission Office.
