You know all about the life-changing opportunities an Albion education offers. Why not share them with a prospective student?
Consider your family (including immediate family members), neighbors, friends, children of co-workers, members of your religious community, civic groups, and others. Recommend a student through our form below, and you'll ensure that the student will receive Albion admission materials.
But it doesn't have to end with the referral. We ask that you actively recruit your student, offer support throughout the search process, recommend campus visits, and encourage his or her application to Albion. By helping the College, you also make Albion more affordable for the student. If he or she is admitted and chooses Albion, the student will receive a $1,000 scholarship—$4,000 over four years—with no financial commitment necessary from you.
To begin the process, please complete the form below. And please note there are many more ways to get involved. If you have any questions about this or other alumni/parent admission volunteer opportunities, please call the Admission Office at 800/858-6770.

Success! Fall 2015 Update
There's nothing quite as gratifying as a high school student—whom you have come to know—choosing to attend Albion College.
By that measure, Albion's new Admission Ambassadors Program has been very gratifying indeed.
Alumni, parents, faculty, and staff embraced the new Admission Ambassadors Program by referring more than 500 high school seniors to the College this year. The program—with its cornerstone of a $1,000 Referral Scholarship for each of four years—helped generate interest in the College among students who may not have considered Albion otherwise. Combined with other new Admission efforts, deposits are up almost 20 percent over 2014.
The results: 537 senior referrals, 355 referred student applications, and 124 referred student deposits.
Thank you to all who took a leap of faith with this program—who sent referral forms and newspaper clippings on high-achieving students; who kept in touch with their referred students and even brought them to campus; who worked college fairs and spring receptions; and who made phone calls and sent e-mails. Your efforts made a huge difference!
Now is the perfect time to refer next year's high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and encourage them to attend the October 17 or November 7 Open House program on campus or to schedule a personal visit and tour this Fall. We welcome your referrals starting today!
Please note: You must refer seniors before they complete their admission application, as it is an incentive to apply. If you need referral forms sent by mail, contact the Admission Office at 800/858-6770.
