a couple of you have asked why you are being charged ~$450 instead of $200 as your ASE letter states. We are using the Union’s template, and they are currently in dispute with the University over how much students on ASE appointments should be required to pay each quarter. We have no control over either the charge language or amount, and nor do we know how or when it may be resolved. There is a short summary at http://www.washington.edu/admin/hr/laborrel/index.html for anyone interested.
Thanks and sorry for the confusion,
