I understand that according to Idaho Code §9-339(1), College of Western Idaho is allowed three (3) working days to provide information unless it is determined that it will take more than the three (3) working days allotted, then the College has ten (10) working days to produce the requested information. If it is determined that more than the initial three (3) working days is needed, the College will advise you immediately. In addition I understand that the College is allowed to charge for copying costs over 100 pages, and for labor if producing the requested information would take more than two person-hours, per Idaho Code §9-338(10)(a) and §9-338(10)(b).
