Refer-A-Friend Program

Doane College’s Office of Financial Aid received notice from the Department of Education recently that our Refer-A-Friend Program is not allowed and, if continued, would negatively impact federal funding for our students. Doane was not the first college to implement a program like this. However, following our announcement, the Department of Education determined this type of a program is prohibited because of rules barring colleges from using recruiting “agents.” The department is now contacting other schools with similar programs. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Many of our adult undergraduate students find their way to Doane’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies through the recommendations from our alumni and current students. This is the highest compliment that can be paid to the Doane experience! In appreciation, we started the Refer-A-Friend Program. Now your referral will earn you a $100 Doane College Bookstore Gift Card! Participation is easy with these steps:
  • Share your experiences with your friends and family
  • Refer your friend during the undergraduate application process to one of Doane's GPS campuses
  • Once your referred student passes his/her first class, you’ll get a $100 Doane College Bookstore Gift Card
Doane appreciates the work of our alumni and students as ambassadors for the college, and we take pride in your contribution toward building an outstanding campus community.
