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 and friends in the future of the college, we would like your assistance in identifying motivated and passionate students on their academic journey.

You may have personally benefited from the faculty and staff committed to your success, or you believe in our mission to help students reach their full potential. This is why you are our best possible ambassador.

The process begins when you fill out a brief Student Referral Form.

  • Let's expand the power of a CC education. The Admissions Office will contact the recommended student and send more information on how they can start their Columbia College journey.
  • We appreciate your efforts to recharge enrollments. Upon completion of your first referral, you will be recognized as a member of the Columbia College Student 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.
