Admissions Process

All interested students are encouraged to apply for admission to LWTech, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. Undocumented students may submit the HB 1079 affidavit to Enrollment Services (West Building, W201) if they meet both of the following criteria:

  1. Earn a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent before your first term at the college
  2. Maintain a primary residence in Washington for at least 12 consecutive months immediately before your first term at the college

What is HB 1079/The Affidavit?

In 2003, the Washington State Legislature approved House Bill (HB) 1079, which allows eligible undocumented students to pay resident tuition at state colleges and universities in Washington. Under HB 1079, students are considered “residents” for the purposes of higher education – it does not change official documentation status.
