KANKAKEE – Kankakee Community College is once again offering an incentive for vaccinated students.
A free course in the spring semester 2022 will be offered to any student who can present a valid COVID-19 vaccination card, provided they did not receive the same incentive offered last fall.
When offered previously, KCC President Michael Boyd said the offer of the free course is a “pretty substantial incentive” to encourage anyone who is eligible for a vaccine to do so.
“We certainly understand that this is a personal choice, but we really want to share with students our understanding that vaccinations have an impact, and we are happy to provide that incentive,” he said previously.
The free course is offered as a tuition credit at time of registration and has a maximum value of $ 495. Offer only applies to tuition and base fees of $ 165 per credit hour. Additional charges (including laboratory charges, out-of-district charges, and the like) are not included. The college will not give out any cash back and it is offered to people who come in person only.
There is a limit of one free class per student. Any student who received the free course in fall 2021 is no longer eligible.
To redeem, the student must present their own original COVID-19 vaccination card and KCC student card at the KCC payment counter. Electronic copies and duplicates are not accepted.
Students already enrolled and paid can follow the procedures above to receive a refund check.
The free course for people vaccinated is only available to KCC students enrolled in a credit course or development education course for the spring semester 2022. Dual credit courses, non-credit continuing education, education adults and ESL classes are excluded. Employees and their dependents are also excluded.
Offer expires May 1.
The college pays for the incentive using funds from the Higher Education Emergency Aid Fund.
