Copying feesPayments.

(1) Fees and payment procedures. The following copying fees and payment procedures apply to requests to the university under chapter 42.56 RCW received on or after the effective date of this section.
(2) Inspection of records. There is no fee for inspecting public records made available for inspection by the public records officer under WAC 106-276-080.
(3) Actual costs not calculated. Pursuant to RCW 42.56.120 (2)(b), the university is not calculating all actual costs for copying records because to do so would be unduly burdensome for the following reasons:
(a) The institution does not have the resources to conduct a study to determine all its actual copying costs;
(b) To conduct such a study would interfere with other essential university functions; and
(c) Through the 2017 legislative process, the public and requestors have commented on and been informed of authorized fees and costs, including for electronic records, provided in RCW 42.56.120 (2)(b) and (c), (3), and (4).
(4) Default fees adopted. The university will charge for copies of records pursuant to the default fees in RCW 42.56.120 (2)(b) and (c). The university will charge for customized services pursuant to RCW 42.56.120(3). Under RCW 42.56.130, the university may charge other copy fees authorized by statutes outside of chapter 42.56 RCW. The university may enter into an alternative fee agreement with a requestor under RCW 42.56.120(4). The charges for copying methods used by the university are summarized in the fee schedule available on the university's website at
(5) Advanced payment required - Fee waivers. Requestors are required to pay for copies in advance of receiving records or an installment of records. The records officer will notify the requestor when payment is due. Fee waivers are an exception and are available for some small requests under the following conditions:
(a) It is within the discretion of the public records officer to waive copying fees when:
(i) All of the records responsive to an entire request are paper copies only and consist of twenty-five or fewer pages; or
(ii) All of the records responsive to an entire request are electronic and can be provided in a single email with attachments of a size totaling no more than the equivalent of one hundred printed pages. If that email for any reason is not deliverable, records will be provided through another means of delivery, and the requestor will be charged in accordance with this rule.
(b) Fee waivers are not applicable to records provided in installments.
(6) Copying fee deposits. The public records officer may require an advance deposit of ten percent of the estimated fees when the copying fees for an installment or an entire request, or customized service charge, exceed twenty-five dollars.
(7) Payment method. Payment should be made by credit or debit card or by check or money order payable to Central Washington University. The university prefers not to receive cash. Cash payments will be accepted if made in the exact amount.
(8) Closure of request for nonpayment. The university will close a request when a requestor fails by the payment date to pay in the manner prescribed for records, an installment of records, or a required deposit.
