What Happens After Your Referral?

We’ll contact the student and let them know you referred them. And then we’ll invite them to find out more about Hartwick College.

If a referred student applies, is accepted and enrolls, they’ll receive a $4,000 Alumni Referral Award ($1,000 per year).

Referring Guidelines

All referred students must apply by the following dates to be considered for the award:

First year students: February 1 (for fall start date) or December 1 (for spring start date).

Transfer students: May 1 (for fall start date) or December 1 (for spring start date).


Alumni can make referrals for multiple students.

Each student being referred can only have one referrer.

All individuals referring a student must fill out the Alumni Referral form before the student applies.
