Refer a Student

Refer a student directly to the Office of Admissions by submitting a Student Referral Form:


Referrals from our graduates, faculty, staff, current students, board members, donors and friends are our best link to new students. You have firsthand knowledge of the value of a Northwestern education and are in a unique position to share your experience and perspective.

Tell a prospective student about the benefits of attending Northwestern.
