 Section 940-13  (Revised)


(at page 4 under procedures and following subsection m. add a new subsection)

 

n.  September 11, 2001 Victims Fee Waiver.  Registration, incidental, and out-of-state fees shall be waived for persons whose spouse or parent was a victim of the September 11, 2001 terrorist actions at the New York World Trade Center, the Pentagon or the Pennsylvania airplane crash.  “Victim” as used herein means a person killed as a direct result of physical injuries suffered on or about September 11 directly related to the above noted terrorist actions and includes rescuers, relief workers or fire and police personnel.  It does not include any individual identified by federal law enforcement personnel as likely perpetrators of the terrorist activities.  This waiver shall apply only to persons enrolled in a program leading to the individual’s initial associate or baccalaureate degree.  If a person is eligible for other grants or scholarships based on the individual’s relationship to a victim, which assistance may be used for attendance within the Montana University System, the fee waiver shall be available only if the individual has fully pursued this alternative source of student assistance and only to the extent that the alternative aid does not cover charges otherwise waivable under this policy.
