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. Resided in Washington state for the three (3) years immediately prior to
    1. Receiving a high school diploma and completed the full senior year at a Washington high school OR
    2. Completing the equivalent of a high school diploma (GED®)
  2. Continuously resided in Washington state since earning the high school diploma or its equivalent

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.
