Kishwaukee College, in cooperation with Voluntary Action Center (VAC), will add a Sycamore bus route in the Fall 2018 Semester. This trustworthy, cost-effective service busses students from various pick up locations in Sycamore to Kishwaukee College and back. Pass packages cost $150 per Fall or Spring semester and $105 for the Summer Semester.

“Kishwaukee College is excited to offer additional support to students,” said Nancy Partch, Dean of Student Services. She continued, “We’ve been working with VAC to develop this route and now we can offer cost-efficient, reliable transportation for our students who live in Sycamore.”

The Sycamore-Kish bus route will run Monday to Friday, from 8 am-4 pm, during the Fall and Spring Semesters and Monday to Thursday, from 8 am-2:30 pm during the Summer Semester. The route is in service from the first to last day of all academic terms and shut down during college holidays and breaks. Kish pass holders will also be able to ride the Sycamore Blue Line or the DeKalb Green line for free with their Kish Bus Pass.

Pass packages for the Fall and Spring Semesters may be purchased in the Kishwaukee College Business Office.

The Federal Department of Education has increased the amount of Pell Grant available for summer semester. Students who attended Kishwaukee College full time during the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semester may be eligible for Pell funding if enrolled in at least six credits this summer. The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate students.

Cynthia Stonesifer, Director of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs, enthused, “Taking summer classes is a great way to accelerate the time it takes to complete your degree or program. Many students will have increased eligibility for the Pell grant in the summer. We are hopeful that they will take advantage of this opportunity.”

Students may have summer Pell eligibility for the amount of their full-time eligibility for one semester. For example: If the student was awarded a full-time Pell grant of $4000 for the year -- $2000 each semester, they would now be eligible for up to another $2000 in the summer if enrolled in 12 credits and $1000 if enrolled in 6 credits. All other eligibility requirements stay the same.

Additionally, as in previous years, students who did not use all of their Pell Grant in the 2017-2018 school year may use their remaining Pell towards summer classes, no minimum credits required.

To apply for the Federal Pell Grant Program, file a 2017-18 FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. After a student’s FAFSA is processed and student is registered for summer courses at Kishwaukee College, the Financial Aid Office will determine the amount of Pell Grant student is eligible to receive.

Stonesifer explained, “We recommend that students check their myKC self-service or their summer award, after they register. This is a manual process, so we only award those who register. Students can stop in the office to speak with someone to get an estimate of what they may receive prior to registering.” The Financial Aid Office will update student’s financial award letter, which Kish students may view in myKC under Self-Service Financial Aid.

Students can take classes here to enhance their homeschool academics, as well as prepare for the university or workplace. We look forward to welcoming new and returning families to this year’s event.”

Kishwaukee College has a new agreement with Western Illinois University to facilitate the transfer of students to WIU. The new agreement goes into effect immediately.

Dr. M. Joanne Kantner, Vice President of Instruction at Kish, stated, “The truly great aspect of this new agreement is that it benefits students who want to transfer to WIU’s Macomb or Quad Cities campus but there is also a bachelor’s completion program that is entirely online which particularly benefits adult students who may be geographically bound to our local area because of work or family obligations.” 

The WIU agreement with Kishwaukee accepts students who are enrolled in any of Kish’s two-year degree programs – Associate in Science, Associate in Arts, Associate of Fine Arts, Associate in Engineering Science and Associate in Applied Science – and who have completed a minimum of 24 hours of college-level coursework into the WIU Bachelor of Arts in General Studies (BGS) Degree Program. Students must apply for admission to WIU and meet the university’s admission criteria to be enrolled in the program.

For students interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement, there is an additional pathway. Beginning with the Fall 2018 academic term, students may pursue the Integrated Bachelor of General Studies with a minor in Law Enforcement and then move on to a Masters in Law Enforcement, all completed online. Kantner stated, “I think this will be a really great opportunity for students to add a Master's degree with just 24 credits beyond a Bachelor's, if they opt for the thesis track, or 30 credits, if they opt for the non-thesis track.”

In addition, students who graduate from Kish from the Honors Program will be eligible to transfer to WIU as members of the Centennial Honors College. Ten credit hours of Honors coursework from Kishwaukee will be counted as sufficient to complete the requirements for Lower Division Honors Scholar designation at WIU.

Kantner noted, “This is a great opportunity for our students to complete a bachelor’s degree that has flexibility. A BGS degree is one that the student can work with an advisor to create a degree program that meets their career goals.”

The BGS fully online option makes it a degree that will fit in with many non-traditional students’ lives. Kantner also added, “There are also many online minors that students could complete in addition to the BGS degree that would increase the effectiveness of the degree in terms and lead to enhanced employability.” 

“I am very excited about this new agreement with Kishwaukee College,” Dr. Jeff Hancks, Executive Director of WIU’s School of Distance Learning said. “WIU has a long history of helping Kish Students achieve their dream of earning an affordable, quality Bachelor’s degree. This new agreement should make it even easier for students to begin a Bachelor’s at Kish and finish at Western, either online or in Macomb or the Quad Cities. We look forward to working with many more outstanding Kish students in the future.”

Online minors offered through WIU include: Accountancy; Anthropology; Business; Computer Mediated Communication, Computer Science – Microcomputer Applications; Economics; Finance; Fire Administration; Geographic Information Systems; Geography; History; Industrial Technology; Law Enforcement and Justice Administration; Management; Marketing; Political Science; Psychology; Recreation, Park, and Tourism Administration; Religion; Sociology; Supply Chain Economics; Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages; and Women’s Studies.

Kishwaukee College students who are interested in the BGS program available through the new partnership with Western Illinois University should contact Sean Kesselring, Lead Academic Advisor at Kishwaukee College, at 815-825-9822 or via email at skesselring@kish.edu. Please enter “WIU- BGS Program” in the email subject line.

For information on the BGS degree, contact Jennifer Tibbits, Director of the General Studies Program at Western Illinois University at JL-Tibbitts@wiu.edu or visit http://www.wiu.edu/distance_learning/bachelor_of_arts_in_general_studies/

Cyndi Stonesifer, Director of Financial Aid at Kishwaukee College, wants to remind area residents that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) filing date will open on October 1. She stated. “For anyone planning to attend Kishwaukee College or any other college or university in the 2018 - 2019 academic year, the filing date will open on October 1, 2017.”

The FAFSA is the basic building block of all financial aid packaging for college students across the U.S. Filing the FAFSA is the first step in determining what federal or state financial aid a student is eligible for, including Pell Grants, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) Federal Direct Student Loans and the Illinois Monetary Award Program (MAP Grants). Filing early may qualify a student for funding from a wider variety of financial aid sources. The Illinois MAP grant, for example, has a limited amount of funds to award and is dispersed in a “first come, first served” format, making filing the FAFSA early a necessity in qualifying for MAP funds.

Stonesifer added, “The 2018-19 FAFSA will use information from the 2016 Tax Forms – forms that were completed and filed six months ago. In addition, it allows students to easily use the IRS Retrieval Tool which automatically links the filed tax forms with the FAFSA form. It makes filing for FAFSA a lot easier.”

Kishwaukee College is planning to hold its annual FAFSA Completion Night on October 24 from 6 – 7:00p.m. in Room A1345 at the College. Stonesifer added, “The local high schools in our district have done a great job getting the word out about the FAFSA filing date, but I want to make sure that all students are aware of the change in filing date.”

The FAFSA Completion Night allows students and their parents an opportunity to fill out the FAFSA form with assistance from financial aid professionals from Kishwaukee College and high school guidance counselors from Kishwaukee Educational Consortium (KEC). Any student who would like assistance is welcome to attend the FAFSA Completion Night.

Students should bring their 2016 income information, including their 2016 Federal Tax information or Federal 1040 tax forms (if filed) or W-2 forms.  Students and parents should know their social security numbers and driver’s license or alien registration numbers. Prior to attending the FAFSA Completion Night, students filing the FAFSA for the first time and parents should go to www.studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid to create their Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) which is required to submit the FAFSA electronically.

For more information on the FAFSA, visit www.fafsa.ed.gov/ or visit www.kish.edu/financial-aid.
