Brandie said she got the COVID-19 vaccination to protect her own health and “for my grandchildren who can’t get the vaccine yet.”

More than 480 Fall Semester students entered the Incentive Program during its first week and 18 students reported receiving their initial dose of a COVID-19 vaccine since the Incentive Program started.

Details about the program, including how to enter, receive gift cards, and qualify for the weekly prize drawing, are available at

Each Wednesday during Fall Semester, 10 prizes of $100 and 1 prize of $1,000 are awarded to students entered into the drawing.

A grand prize drawing for $10,000 will take place Dec. 15, 2021.
