Procedure for informal hearing.

Upon receipt of a timely request for a hearing, the dean of administrative services or the person designated by the president shall have the records and files of the institution available for review and, at that time, shall hold an informal hearing concerning whether the individual in fact owes any outstanding debts to the institution. After the informal hearing, a decision shall be rendered by the president's designee indicating whether in fact the institution is correct in withholding services and/or wages for outstanding debt, and if the outstanding debt is in fact owed by the individual involved, no services shall be provided and, if an employee, the debt will be offset against wages owed to the individual. Notification of this shall be sent to the individual within five days after the hearing. Said decision shall constitute an informal proceeding established by the institution pursuant to the Higher Education Administrative Procedure Act as defined in RCW 28B.19.110.
