CBC does everything possible to help you afford to reach your dreams. However your nancial plan comes together,
we do have to make sure you are holding up your scal responsibility while attending CBC. In fact, the Washington
State Legislature is pretty clear about it in WAC 132S-90-025(12). In order to uphold this law, CBC appoints a group of
representatives to bring matters of debt to a timely conclusion. Please read our Debt Review Policy for all the details.
It is your right to request an informal appeal of any outstanding debt at CBC. You just have to submit this Debt Review
Petition clearly stating your case (either an error on our part or extenuating circumstances in your life). This petition and
any documentation you can provide has to be given to CBC within 21 days from the date included on the letter we send
notifying you of the amount you owe.
If you feel better about presenting your case in person, the Debt Review Committee (that group of CBC representatives
tasked with taking care of these matters) will convene to hear your petition in person. Send an email to debtreview@ within those 21 days mentioned in the last paragraph, and we will schedule a time for you to bring
your case forward. You’ll still need to include the Debt Review Petition and supporting documentation, but you’ll have
the chance to add your side of the story in a conversation with the committee.
The Debt Review Committee will provide a written decision within ve business days of either meeting with you or
reviewing your written appeal. If the committee decides to clear your debt, CBC will take all necessary steps to correct
your account and reinstate all rights to services on campus. If you still owe the College money after the debt review
process, the amount will need to be paid before services are reinstated.
If you do not agree with the Debt Review Committee’s decision, you always have the right to make a formal appeal to
the President within 10 business days of the written response, described in WAC Chapter 132S-20.
We want you to pursue your educational goals here at CBC! And, while we know that college can be expensive, we
want to provide every opportunity to help you hold up your end of the deal—including, if it comes to it, appealing debt
that you may incur. Please contact the Executive Assistant to the Vice President for Student Services at 509-542-4449 or
email with questions, comments or concerns.
Please complete the following information, including as much detail and supporting documentation as possible. This
petition may be submitted via email or regular mail.
