The Student Fees Committee
The Student Fees Committee is a committee of elected students who oversee the budgeting process for the entirety of student incidental and health fees. Each year, the SIFC revises budgetary guidelines for the student fee funded units, reviews executive reports, strategic plans and final budget submissions for the upcoming fiscal year. The student fee funded budgets are Student Health Services (SHS), Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), the Associated Students of Oregon State University (ASOSU), Student Organization Resources for Community Engagement (SORCE), Student Sustainability Initiative (SSI), Intercollegiate Athletics (student ticket allocations), Performing Arts, the Memorial Union (MU), Recreational Sports, Student Access and Family Resources (SAFR), Orange Media Network, SIFC Administration, Facility Improvements, Bad Debt Expense, Student Fees Contingency Fund, and Diversity Development (DD) which includes: the four Cultural Centers, the Pride Center, and the Womens Center
The SIFC recommends fee levels for each department and then forwards these recommendations to the ASOSU Congress at joint session. After approval from ASOSU Congress, the recommendations are sent to the OSU Board of Trustees for final approval. The SIFC is has also been responsible for evaluating proposals for the usage of the Raising Reser fund agreement and contingency fund requests from student fee funded units, as well as conducting annual reviews of operations of the student fee departments. One of the most recent contributions students on SIFC have made was the effective evaluation of the Student Experience Center Fee Impact alongside the Auxiliaries and Activities Business Center (AABC).
