Alumni Referrals

Alumni Referral Rewards Program

As UNT Dallas alumni, you are the greatest advocate for our programs.  Alumni referrals are a great source of qualified applicants because of your unique understanding of the type of student who would thrive here. You know what it takes to be successful in our graduate programs and are able to articulate what makes UNT Dallas unique. Prospective students want to hear most from someone who has gone through and benefited from the experience.  We truly value and are very grateful for referrals. 

The Alumni Referral Reward Program is our way of thanking you for your support and for sending us qualified prospects. If you know someone who is interested in learning more about our programs, provide them with one of your “Alumni Referral Program” business cards, which also serves as a $50 application fee waiver when that person applies for admission. 

As an expression of gratitude to UNT Dallas alums that refer a prospective student that actually enrolls at UNT Dallas, we will offer a <super swag item> of your choice as a token of our appreciation.

Here is how it works:

  • If you have a friend, relative, or colleague who might be interested in UNT Dallas, participating is as easy as providing them with an Alumni Referral Form Business Card and encouraging them to complete the referral info form.
  • Once we receive their referral form, we will …….
  • We will enter your referral’s information into our database and mail/email them an inquiry packet.  When that person applies for admission, we will waive their application fee.
  • If that person(s) goes on to be accepted and enrolls, you will receive a <super swag item> of your choice.  There is no limit on the number of referral you are allowed.

Keep tabs on who you refer and ensure they tell us about you!!
