Refer a Student! One of the biggest impacts alumni can have on the intellectual, creative, and fiscal vibrancy of the college is by helping us enroll smart, talented, enthusiastic students.
What happens with these alumni referrals is extraordinary. Students referred by you—the people who know the Simon’s Rock experience the best—complete applications, are admitted, and enroll at much higher rates than those students who come to us from any other source. Alumni referrals begin as less than 1% of our inquiries and end up as 10% of our enrolled students.
Your referrals powerfully impact the admission effort. Our goal this year is 100 alumni referrals between now and May 1st! Please note: Students must apply by February 1st in order to be considered for Merit-based Scholarships!
They could be the siblings or children of your friends, relatives, neighbors, coworkers, classmates, or friends of friends. They might also be talented young people you read about in the local paper or online; students you could contact to share information about Simon’s Rock. Hearing about your experience at Simon’s Rock and the difference it made in your life can be very compelling for both students and their parents.
When you have a student in mind, please fill out the referral form below. Please note, if a student you refer is admitted, we’ll also award them a $1,000 Alumni Referral Scholarship on your behalf.
