Alumni Referral Program

Refer a Bearcat! If you know a student who you believe would benefit from a Saint Vincent education, complete our short referral form below. If a student you recommend applies after you submit a referral form, we will send you some Bearcat swag as a token of appreciation.

What kind of student should you refer to join the Bearcat family?

  • Students looking for a rigorous education that leads to a successful meaningful life. Thanks to our liberal arts education built on Benedictine values, our students are empowered to become leaders in their profession. According to a recent survey, 98% of our recent alumni were employed in their field, pursuing further education, or performing service within one year of graduating.
  • Students looking for a personalized educational experience. There is a reason Saint Vincent College has been named one of the top 50 most transformative colleges in the nation. Our 11:1 student-faculty ratio means that professors will know every student by name, serving as mentors and cheerleaders. Here, students will experience an education designed to encourage their academic, personal, professional, and spiritual growth.
  • Students looking for a surprisingly affordable private school education. Generous alumni like you help us reach our goal of making a personalized liberal arts education possible for all students. Students can earn more than $35,000 in merit scholarships and grants per year in addition to state and federal financial aid, making an SVC education more affordable than some of our state-affiliated and private college competitors.

Please feel free to refer multiple students. However, we limit one swag item per admission cycle, per alum. Items will be mailed after the May 1 deposit deadline.
