Refer a Student to CC!

Do you know a student who would be a great fit for Columbia College? As part of our efforts to involve alumni in the future of your alma mater, we would like your assistance in identifying potential Columbia College students.

We understand the power of a referral from our own alumni! Having personally benefited from the faculty and staff committed to your success, you are the best possible ambassador for the college. Now is your chance to invite another motivated and passionate student to CC!

The Process

  1. Fill out the short Alumni Referral Form.
  2. The Admissions Office will contact the recommended student and send more information on how they can start their Columbia College journey.
  3. We appreciate your efforts to recharge enrollments! Upon completion of your first referral, you will be recognized as a member of the Columbia College Alumni Referral Program and will receive a CCAA-branded portable cell phone charger to keep you powered on the go.

But don't stop there! You may make multiple referrals and are encouraged to reach out to family and friends during the process. Continue to talk about your CC experience or even join them for a campus visit.


  • New student referrals include interested first-year undergraduate students, transfer students and new students to a graduate program who have not submitted an application with the CC Admissions Office.
  • Columbia College includes Day and Evening programs in Columbia, Missouri, as well as nearly 40 locations across the United States and an Online Program. Our Admissions team can help find the right fit for each students' educational needs.

Thank you for your commitment to the future of Columbia College! To speak with a staff member, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at or (573) 875-2586.
