Current Campus Update
November 22, 2021
As we complete the Fall 2021 semester and prepare for the Spring 2022 semester, we want to continue to provide a thank you and an incentive to receive your COVID-19 vaccination. Let's all do our part to keep our campus safe and healthy.
Students that upload their COVID-19 vaccination card beginning today, even if they have just one vaccine dose or both, will be entered into a drawing to win a $2,500 scholarship.
Additionally, all students that have previously uploaded their vaccination card since August 1, 2021 will be entered into a separate drawing to win a $2,500 scholarship. Both scholarship awards will be drawn on December 1.
Faculty and staff that upload their COVID-19 vaccination card beginning today, even if they have just one vaccine dose or both, will be entered into a drawing to win a $2,500 award.
Additionally, all faculty and staff that have previously uploaded their vaccination card since August 1, 2021 will be entered into a separate drawing to win a $2,500 award. Both will be drawn on December 1 and taxed when paid through payroll.
As a reminder, vaccination cards must be uploaded through myGate to be eligible for these reward opportunities.
