Graduate Alumni Referral Program

Make a Referral and Get Rewarded!

As a graduate alumnus of St. Thomas, you already know and understand the value of a St. Thomas master's degree. You’ve experienced the personal attention from faculty and staff, the cutting-edge curriculum, the hands-on learning, and the springboard to in-demand jobs. Now is your chance to invite another passionate and motivated student to join one of our Graduate Programs in Software (GPS). 

As a sign of our gratitude, we will offer you a $1,500 tuition credit towards one GPS course as well as a $1,500 tuition credit to your referral once they enroll and successfully complete their first semester and enroll in their second consecutive semester in a School of Engineering graduate program.

New Graduate Student Referral Process:

Please give your first and last name and St. Thomas email address to the student you are referring. When the student(s) you are referring applies for admission to one of our graduate programs, they will need to enter this information in their online application for admission when prompted with the question, "How did you hear about our program?"

Please make sure that you share your contact information with the student you refer, and remind them to enter this information in their online application for admission so both of you will be eligible for the referral reward.

Questions? Please contact our Graduate Student Services team at 651-962-5500 or gradsoftware@stthomas.edu
