Did you know that more than a third of students referred by Randolph-Macon students, alumni, and friends end up attending RMC? That means YOU are one of the College’s best ambassadors!

Refer a Yellow Jacket Frequently Asked Questions

You can (and should!) refer as many qualified students as you’d like!

Yes. We encourage community members, faculty, staff, and even current students to refer prospective students. Simply select “N/A” under graduation year on the form.

You may refer family members like cousins, but legacy students (children, siblings, or grandchildren of alumni) will be eligible for a Legacy Grant instead.

If you are the parent, grandparent, or sibling of the student you had planned to refer, we invite you to encourage a friend who is connected to the College to refer that student instead. Children of RMC employees are eligible for tuition remission but not the Refer a Yellow Jacket program.

The award will be added to the admitted students financial aid package and credited to the student’s account in the Business Office.

A student will be eligible for just one award, given in the name of the first referrer.

We’d love your help in helping the student discover if they are a good fit at RMC. We encourage you to share your own positive experiences with both the student and their family. We find that a visit to campus is a critical element in students’ decisions, so encourage them to visit and make connections with current students, connect with the College on social media, and explore rmc.edu.

The College will be in touch to confirm that your referral has been received. However, federal privacy laws prevent us from sharing any information about a student’s interactions with the College without the student’s consent, including application submissions and admission decisions. We encourage you to reach out personally to the referred student to let them know you’ve referred them, and to inquire about the student’s status. This will protect the student’s privacy and encourage a one-on-one relationship, which will be beneficial to the student in the years to come!
