COVID-19 Response

Reynolds Student Vaccination Incentive Program

Reynolds Community College prioritizes the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and guests. We are active stewards of promoting what is in the best interest of maintaining a healthy community. Science has demonstrated the effectiveness of the three main Covid-19 vaccinations and their ability to dramatically reduce the negative impacts of the virus, particularly hospitalization and death. As we look towards the fall 2021 semester, we thank all students who have already been vaccinated and encourage those who have not yet done so to get vaccinated. We will reward this milestone with a gift card incentive.


The Reynolds Student Vaccination Incentive Program provides a $50 Follett gift card to any eligible fall 2021 student who demonstrates proof of being fully vaccinated* against Covid-19. Additionally, all qualifying students who receive a gift card will also be entered into a drawing for a new laptop computer (details below). This drawing will take place on November 5.

Dell Latitude 5420 with Intel i5 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB hard drive. Retail value: $1,050.



Students must be registered for at least one fall 2021 Reynolds class to be eligible for the incentive. All class sessions (15-week, 10-week, 7-week etc.) are eligible. Fully-online classes also qualify. In addition, any Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA) student taking a class at a physical Reynolds campus that starts on or after August 23, 2021 is eligible for the incentive. Students may be asked for their EMPL student ID number or their full name to verify class registration status.


Proof of vaccination

Any of the following suffices for proof of vaccination:

  • Photocopy or digital image of a valid, completed CDC Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card issued in the student’s name (preferred method)
  • An original, valid, completed CDC Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card issued in the student’s name

Eligible Reynolds credit class students must show proof of vaccination to the Business Office at any Reynolds campus with the exception of The Kitchens. Please note that days and times of Business Office service vary by campus. Students at The Kitchens may show proof of vaccination to Advising Services in Room 107 during the college’s Monday through Thursday service hours. Eligible students demonstrating proof of vaccination in-person will receive their gift card immediately.


Students enrolled in a CCWA class may show proof of vaccination and receive their gift card at the CCWA Business Office located in the Room 103-A of Workforce Development Building at the Reynolds Parham Road Campus or Room 626, CCWA Coaching and Career Services, Reynolds Downtown Campus. (This is the former Middle College office).


Fully-online students unable to visit campus may show proof of vaccination virtually by scheduling a Zoom video call with the Business Office. Calls may be scheduled by emailing Gift cards will be mailed to the address of record for eligible fully-online students demonstrating proof of vaccination. Reynolds is not responsible for the card while in USPS transit and replacement cards will not be provided.
