SUMMARY:

Guidelines for reduced tuition charges for certain academic programs. Requires the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) to develop guidelines for tuition charges for academic programs offered at state-controlled colleges and universities, including the Virginia Community College System, that prepare students for professions for which there is a "critical need" for an adequate supply of properly trained personnel. In developing these guidelines and determining "critical need" professions, SCHEV is authorized to conduct such studies as it deems appropriate. All agencies of the Commonwealth are to assist SCHEV in executing these duties. The guidelines are not subject to the provisions of the Administrative Process Act (APA). Technical amendments clarify that various SCHEV guidelines are not subject to the APA. Pursuant to 23-9.10:1, SCHEV now makes recommendations for the coordination of post-secondary programs for health professions and occupations that will ensure an adequate supply of trained health professionals. This measure was carried over by the House Education Committee.
