|(a) An institution is not required to grant an exemption
from the payment of tuition under this section if funding for reimbursing
the institution for the revenues foregone is not provided by the Legislature.
(b) If notified by the Board that funds are available,
an institution may apply to the Board for reimbursement for the tuition
revenues foregone through this exemption.
(c) To the extent to which funds are made available
by the Legislature, the Board will provide reimbursements to the institutions.
(d) If the Board determines at any time during a year
that the appropriated funds are insufficient to cover the anticipated
total of foregone tuition for that year, the Board may defer the processing
of requests for reimbursements received after that date and provide
institutions a prorated share of the available funds as of the end
of the fiscal year.
