âConsider the voice of students, talk to faculty and staff about what they hear when they talk to their students. And the administration, everyone is meeting to talk about it, âEspinoza said.
She says IVC wanted to take this opportunity to give back to the students. She said the money to cover these waived costs is funded by the federal and state levels.
âThere have been many circumstances where a student has not been able to return to class and you know we are facing a pandemic. It’s very understandable, âEspinoza said.
When asked if this would be extended until the 2022 spring semester, Espinoza said IVC was not sure at this time. They need to see how many people are signing up for the next semester and if funds are still available they will extend them until the spring registration.
