SEATTLE —

A new report from the state actuary says Washington's pre-paid tuition program could lose some of its financial polish if state universities start adopting differential tuition for more expensive majors.

Last year, the Legislature passed a bill that would allow the state's four-year schools the option of charging higher tuition for certain programs like engineering that cost more to provide.

That plan may help the colleges balance their budgets, but the state actuary says it could cause problems for Washington's Guaranteed Education Tuition program. That's because the GET program is set up to anticipate college costs and if tuition is differentiated, those costs could change more than originally expected.
