IFC COMMITTEE WINTER 2021 PRELIMINARY ALLOCATION
Each year the Incidental Fee Committee makes a decision on how much money they would like to allocate to the various IFC funded areas. Due to COVID-19 and the very different circumstances we are currently in, the IFC has been presented budgets that are 50% of what they would be in a regular year. These options are significantly less than they have been in the past, however, they can still allow us to have our services and keep our staff and student jobs. These options are only for Winter Term 2021, and the IFC will continue to work diligently to make our preliminary decisions for Spring and future terms when we reconvene in January.
