A New Jersey university announced Covid-19 vaccination incentives Thursday in the form of discounted tuition and board for students who show proof that they’ve been inoculated before the fall semester.

Rowan University, a public college in Glassboro, is offering students up to $1,000 off their fall 2021 bills if they show proof of vaccination before Aug. 7, according to its website. Full-time students will get $500 off their tuition bills, and those who live on campus will get another $500 deducted from their housing bills.

“Our message today is simple. We believe the path to normalcy is through widespread vaccination and we want our entire community to commit to reaching the goal of widespread vaccination,” the school said.
