Share post:

KANKAKEE – Kankakee Community College will offer students showing their vaccination card and student ID one free class during the Fall 2021.

“We want to do our part in the community to mitigate COVID,” said Beth Nunley, KCC’s vice president for business affairs. “Offering an incentive for the vaccine will help encourage our students to be better protected, as well as discount their tuition.”

The free class is offered as a tuition credit at the time of registration. The maximum value is $495. The offer applies only to tuition and basic fees of $165 per credit hour. Additional fees (including lab fees, out-of-district fees and others) are not included. The college will not give any cash back, and it is offered to people who come in-person only. There is a limit of one free class per student.

Electronic copies or duplicates of proof of vaccination will not be accepted.

Students who have already registered and paid can follow the procedures above to receive a refund check.

The free class for vaccinated individuals is available only for KCC students enrolled in a credit class or developmental education class for the Fall 2021 semester. Dual credit, non-credit continuing education, adult education, and English as a Second Language classes are excluded. Employees and their dependents are also excluded.

The offer expires Dec. 1, 2021.

The college is paying for the incentive using funds from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.

Many classes will begin the week of Aug. 16. In addition to the full semester classes that meet for 16 weeks, KCC also offers classes that meet for 12 weeks and eight weeks. Some begin later in the fall. The class schedule is at www.kcc.edu/schedule. Enrollment information is also available from the KCC Student Affairs Division at studentaffairs@kcc.edu, and online at www.kcc.edu.

KCC is returning to mostly in-person learning, while also offering some classes in online and “hybrid” formats. Hybrid courses are partially in-person and partially online. For more information about the free class incentive, email or phone the college’s Accounting Office at accountingoffice@kcc.edu or phone 815-802-8140.
