Rules and WACs

Council Rule-Making and WACs

Laws approved by the House, Senate, and Governor become part of the Revised Code of Washington (RCW). New or revised RCWs laws often require agencies to do something new or to change the way something is done. Agencies then develop processes and procedures for putting those laws into action. These processes and procedures are known as rules and are codified in the Washington Administrative Code (WAC).

At the Washington Student Achievement Council, most WACs focus on financial aid program management or authorization of institutions and degree programs.
