If you make your full payment after December 14, keep in mind that our IBEX secretary (who handles the payments) will heading home for her Christmas break and won’t arrive back on campus untili the due date for the final payment.  We need the payments in by January 13 to give the IBEX secretary and the finance office time to gather those payments together and send checks off for the land and airline side of the trip costs.

So if you make your final payment after December 14, please don’t expect any response saying that your payment was received until she gets back into the IBEX office and can catch up with payments that came in during the break.  Also, there is no need to email me because I won’t know anything about what has come through as payments.  If you are wondering if your payment was received, feel free to email Bethany after January 13.
