Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why refer?

    We’ve heard that many learners have amplified the impact of their program by taking it alongside friends and colleagues. By taking the same program, colleagues can build a shared vocabulary and have direct conversations about how course material applies to their roles.

    Both you and your friend will receive a discount on your program fees. You can refer as many friends as you would like. You will receive an extra US$195 off for every friend that joins and stays in the program.

  • Who can refer?

    Anyone can refer friends to a program. There are many reasons why our learners choose to refer their friends:

    Learners that have not yet taken a program often refer colleagues to save money on program fees, and to recruit a classmate with whom they can discuss concepts as they are learning.

    Learners that have completed programs often refer their colleagues in order to share an impactful program that they have recently completed or to simply spread the gift of knowledge.

    What if I’m not sure that I want to take the program yet?

    We’ve seen many learners refer their friends to a program before they have had a chance to take it. If you refer your friends and have not yet signed up for the program, you will receive a credit that you can put towards this program in the future.

    What if I already took a course - can I still refer?

    Just after completing a course is one of the most common moments when our learners refer their friends. If you successfully refer a friend after completing your program, you will receive a credit that you can apply towards a future Columbia Engineering program.
