COVID-19 Incentive FAQs

  • Who is eligible for the vaccine incentive?

    Any NHCC student enrolled in at least one or more credits for the Fall semester and is fully vaccinated between September 17, 2021 and November 17, 2021. This includes visiting, non-degree, international, and PSEO students as well as regular degree-seeking students. The only enrolled students excluded from receiving the incentive are concurrent enrollment high school students. 

  • Am I eligible for the incentive if I was fully vaccinated prior to Sept. 17?

    No, the purpose of this incentive is to encourage those who are unvaccinated to get the vaccine, and therefore, is only available to students who have not yet been vaccinated.

  • Am I eligible for the incentive if I had received the first dose of the vaccine prior to Sept. 17, but didn't receive the second dose until after?
