Exemptions.

(1) Public Records Act exemptions. There are a number of types of records exempt from public inspection and copying. The college reserves the right to determine that a public record requested in accordance with WAC 132S-10-070, or any portion thereof, is exempt under the Public Records Act.
(2) Other exemptions. Requestors should be aware of the following exemptions, outside the Public Records Act, that restrict the availability of some documents held by the college for inspection and copying. This is not an exhaustive list as numerous exemptions exist outside of the act to an academic setting. The college's failure to list an exemption here shall not affect the efficacy of any exemption.
