Sauk Valley Community College is excited to announce the launch of the SVCC Impact Program. Current 8th grade students are able to sign up now through September 1.

SVCC’s earned-tuition program provides eligible students, who graduate within the SVCC district, the opportunity to earn tuition and fees for up to three years at SVCC, or until they earn their certificate or degree— whichever comes first.

Prophetstown High School was one of two schools in the SVCC District that debuted the program this past school year. 38 freshmen signed up for the program and have completed over 550 hours of community service since last fall. To earn free tuition the students must complete 25 hours of community serves each year of their high school career.

  • Register by September 1 of their freshman year of high school
  • Volunteer 25 hours each year they are in high school for a total of 100 hours by high school graduation.
  • Graduate on time or early from an in-district high school or homeschool
  • Apply for one local/state/national scholarship
  • Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

Students participating in the program will be able to have their tuition and fees earned at SVCC. For the students who graduate in the top 10% of their class, books will also be covered. Tuition and fee pricing is applied at tiered rates for students who commit after the September 1 deadline.

Informational sessions are held for students and parents interested in learning more about the SVCC Impact Program.

  1. I am a volunteer planner for the John Crady Memorial 5K Walk/Run. We’d like to be part of your Impact Program so students can volunteer to assist with this Prophetstown Event in June 2023. This is our 3rd year. How can we sign-up to be participants in this Impact Program?
