The Kishwaukee College EMSA Program will be holding an information meeting for prospective students for the 2018-19 academic year on Wednesday, November 1 from 6 – 6:30p.m. in Room A1273 (Kishwaukee College Conference Center Dining Room). The information session is for students who are currently juniors in high school and their parents/guardians.

Immediately after the EMSA Information Session, participants may attend the Illinois Regional College Fair in the gym where admissions representatives from over 70 colleges and universities will have information for prospective students. Participants should park in Lot A/South Lot and enter through Doors #16 and #17. This event and the Illinois Regional College Fair are free and open to the public.

EMSA is a program for talented high school students during their senior year to jumpstart their college careers by taking the higher-level math and science classes that are the foundation of a wide variety of majors. Former EMSA students have gone on to universities across the country to study engineering, chemistry, physics, computer science/engineering, and a variety of science-based pre-professional programs including pre-med, pre-veterinary medicine, pre-physical therapy, and pre-pharmacy.

Students who have completed the EMSA Program have successfully gained admission to prestigious institutions, including Northern Illinois University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Case Western Reserve University, Cornell University, the University of Chicago and Stanford.

To qualify for the program, students in their junior year in high school must be enrolled in Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry and be currently enrolled in or have completed one year of high school chemistry with a minimum grade of a B. The EMSA program begins with Math 229 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I in the summer before the students begin their senior year in high school. Students then take further calculus and either college-level Physics and/or Chemistry classes from 7:30 – 10:00a.m. during the fall and spring semesters. After their EMSA classes each day, students return to their high schools to continue their regular academic and extra-curricular schedules.

On completion of the EMSA Program, students will have earned 23 – 26 transferable college credit hours at the more affordable Kishwaukee College tuition rates.

Kishwaukee College is proud to announce the establishment of the Student Success Scholarship. During their regularly scheduled meeting on September 12, the Kishwaukee College Board of Trustees unanimously voted to approve a Student Success Scholarship that gives back to the students enrolled for the 2017-2018 school year. Students who successfully complete their credit-bearing courses will receive a special scholarship equal to half of the per credit hour tuition increase approved by the Board in March 2017. 

Bob Johnson, Chair of the Board, stated, “Because Illinois showed no progress toward resolving the state budget crisis last March, we voted to increase the in-district tuition rate by $10 per credit hour for the 2017-2018 school year. It was something we thought about and debated but saw no other way through the state budget impasse. We reluctantly passed the increase at our March meeting. In July, when a state budget was voted in place, we knew we wanted to do something to give back to our students.”

According to the state budget passed in July for Fiscal Year 2017 and Fiscal Year 2018, Kishwaukee College is scheduled to receive an additional $2.8 million and approximately $5 million, respectively.

The Student Success Scholarship will automatically be awarded to all students who are enrolled in credit-bearing courses and who complete their courses with a letter grade of A, B, or C. There are several programs at Kish that have a differential tuition base. Students will be reimbursed with the differential tuition taken into account. The Scholarship amounts will be: $5 per credit hour for general coursework; $7.50 per credit hour for programs that have a 1.5 differential tuition rate; and $10 per credit hour for programs that have a 2.0 differential tuition rate.

For the Fall 2017 semester, the Student Success Scholarship will be deposited in student accounts at the end of the term after grades have been posted. The scholarship funds can be applied toward the Spring 2018 semester or students will receive a refund check for the scholarship amount if they do not re-enroll for the Spring 2018 semester.

The Board also approved other ways to give back to students including waiving all user fees for the campus Wellness Center, discounts in the College Bookstore for Kish “spirit wear,” and food vouchers for use in Kish Café.

The path from Kishwaukee College to Northern Illinois University recently got a bit easier with the completion of a Guaranteed Admissions Agreement (GAP) between the two schools.

The GAP program allows students to be admitted to both schools simultaneously which provides access to Counselors/Academic Advisors at both institutions to keep them on their academic track. The dual enrollment helps ensure a seamless transition for the students between the schools.

“We are pleased to be partnering with NIU on the GAP agreement. It is a great opportunity for our students,” said Dr. Laurie Borowciz, President of Kishwaukee College. “Students start at Kish for good reasons, including being undecided on a major and affordability. With fifty-five percent of our students transferring to NIU, it’s important that we work closely together to provide a seamless transition. It’s all about our mutual students achieving their educational goal.”

“There are thousands of people who are proud alumni of both Kishwaukee and Northern Illinois University,” says NIU Acting President Dr. Lisa Freeman. “We are delighted to forge this new agreement that will pave the way for thousands more.”

Under the terms of the agreement, high school graduates studying at Kishwaukee College, who maintain a grade point of 2.0 or better while completing transferable credits, are eligible to transfer into any of the more than 56 undergraduate degree programs at NIU. Students need to sign up for the program at least one year prior to their expected enrollment at NIU.

Students enrolled in the program also can:

• Enroll in the Honors Program at NIU if they maintain a grade point average of 3.2 or better at Kishwaukee College;

• Take advantage of a reverse transfer agreement that will allow students to apply coursework completed at NIU toward completion of their associate’s degree at Kishwaukee, at no additional cost;

• Apply to earn scholarships from NIU.

Participants in the program also receive regular updates from NIU about scholarship opportunities, financial aid deadlines, open houses, and have their application fee waived.

Kishwaukee College prides itself on being responsive to the needs of the communities which it serves. In doing so, the College is continually soliciting feedback from key stakeholders, including its most important group, the students. 

Since 2011, the Office of Institutional Research has conducted a Student Satisfaction Survey every two years through Ruffalo Noel Levitz.  The survey helps the College gather feedback from students and provides national benchmarks on key issues. The latest survey conducted in Spring of 2017 shows Kishwaukee College is going in the right direction, according to students. Matthew Crull, Director of Research and Data Management at Kish, said, “In the four Surveys administered over the past six years, Spring 2017 exhibited the highest level of satisfaction ever recorded at Kishwaukee.”

He continued, “Kishwaukee College was above the national benchmarks for several items of student satisfaction. The College continues to do well in providing a welcoming, safe environment that provides easy and convenient registration and quality online services. This year saw another increase in the satisfaction ratings of quality and courtesy among the faculty and staff at the College.”

Other aspects of Kishwaukee College that the students noted improvement in were the state-of-the-art lab facilities on campus, accessibility to courses within the students’ program of study each semester and the ongoing feedback that students receive about their progress toward their academic goals.

The survey also identified some opportunities for improvement. Students want more classes offered at more convenient times, which is a common issue faced at all colleges.  Crull said, “The challenges faced still primarily include offering more sections at convenient times and in a wider variety of departments. Some of these things are logistical in nature—we can only offer a certain number of classes that meet at 10:00 in the morning, for example.” Additionally, students are joining other college students across the country in placing increased emphasis on cost and finding new ways to pay their tuition bills.

The results of the Student Satisfaction Survey are shared with the College’s Board of Trustees, Senior Leadership Team, and the faculty and staff.  Crull noted, “We want everyone to be aware of what we found from our students.” Crull will be evaluating and interpreting this year’s Student Satisfaction Survey results and adding his findings to reports to the College’s accreditation bodies and campus committees dedicated to Strategic Planning and Departmental Assessment.

The next Student Satisfaction Survey will be administered in Spring 2019. Until then, Crull summed up the 2017 findings, “We have excelled in being a college that students want to come to, find welcoming, meets their academic needs, helps them achieve their career goals, and are impressed with as they experience how much our instructors and front line personnel care about giving them a great experience at Kishwaukee College.”

Ian Kidd, a student at Kishwaukee College, has been selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship from Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society as a 2015 Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholar.

 Kidd, Sycamore, is in his second year at Kishwaukee and is planning to continue his education after graduation to pursue his career goal of becoming a Mechanical Engineer. He is an active member of the campus community and is currently the co-president of the Alpha Rho Eta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Kishwaukee College.

As a 2015 Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholars, Kidd joins 207 Phi Theta Kappa members who have been awarded a total of $207,000 in scholarships. Chosen from more than 1,100 applications worldwide, the scholars receive scholarships of $1,000 each to further their associate degree studies. Independent judges evaluate the applications based on scholastic achievement, community service and leadership potential.

The Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholarship Program provides new Phi Theta Kappa members with financial resources to help defray educational expenses while enrolled in associate degree programs. Scholars are also encouraged to assume leadership roles by participating in Society programs.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation provides $200,000 in funding for the scholarships, with $25,000 set aside for members who are veterans or active members of the U.S. military. The remaining amount is supported by donations to the Phi Theta Kappa Foundation and provides Leaders of Promise Global Scholarships, earmarked for international students.

"The funds provided by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation not only aid college completion, but provide students with the opportunity to engage in Society programs and develop leadership skills to become future leaders in their communities,” said Dr. Nancy Rieves, CEO of the Phi Theta Kappa Foundation. “Research shows that Phi Theta Kappa members are four times more likely to complete a college degree than their peers.  The Leaders of Promise Scholarships recognize students for what they have achieved already and assure that financial need isn’t an obstacle to achieving their academic goals.”

"The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has a long history of providing financial assistance to outstanding students at community colleges," said J. Mark Davis, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. "We are proud to partner with Phi Theta Kappa and make it possible for more deserving students to achieve their educational goals. Phi Theta Kappa members are proven scholars, engaged students who want to use their abilities to make a difference. In designating $200,000 for Leaders of Promise, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation is supporting tomorrow's leaders of the global community."

Phi Theta Kappa, headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, is the largest honor society in higher education with 1,285 chapters on college campuses in all 50 of the United States, U.S. territorial possessions and eight sovereign nations. More than 3 million students have been inducted since its founding in 1918, with approximately 134,000 students inducted annually.
