Dual degree program sends two from Kankakee to Governors State
Two Kankakee Community College (KCC) students recently received full scholarships to Governors State University (GSU) through KCC's dual degree program with the university, according to a press release.
Andrea Fuentes earned her associate in science degree in December, focusing on biological sciences. She won the Dual Degree Honors Scholarship, which will allow her to continue her education at GSU for free. Fuentes was an active part of the KCC community, connecting with faculty and serving as membership co-chair officer of Phi Theta Kappa.
Brianna Fabsits earned her associate in arts degree in May 2015 and thanks to the Promise Scholarship will be able to continue her education at GSU, where she wants to work on an early childhood education degree. Fabsits hopes to become a kindergarten teacher and continue her education through a doctoral degree.
Students in the dual degree program are guaranteed admission to GSU and also benefit from a locked-in tuition rate for two years from their enrollment. Students must complete 12 to 44 credit hours at KCC to enroll.
