What is SFC?

OSU-Cascades Student Fee Committee (SFC) is a group of nine student leaders responsible for the allocation of student incidental fees. The ASCC Vice President serves as the chair of SFC. Seats on committee include Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, Campus Development Coordinator, Club Coordinator, and Class Representatives from each class standing. Each member holds voting power to represent the student voice. The Assistant Director of Student Life serves as an advisor to SFC, and as a liaison between the students and university administration.  All students are welcome to join us for our weekly meetings.
