Spring on the York College campus

Refer a Spartan This Holiday Season

Get a friend or family member to apply by Jan. 15, 2018

We know that one of the best ways we can continue to add to the York College community is by reaching out to current students. After all, you already have friends who may be looking at colleges, either as an incoming freshman or as a transfer, and there's no one better to convince them that this is the right place to be than you.

That's why we want to reward York College students who spend some time this holiday season getting other to apply. For each person who applies connected to your referral, you'll get one entry into a drawing for three (3) $75 York College bookstore gift cards.

They can either submit a paper application (available in the Miller Administration Building), or submit an online application

Holiday season at York College of Pennsylvania
  • How to submit a referred student's name

    Once a friend/family member has submitted a complete application*, please do one of the following to enter:

    • Email with subject line: Refer a Spartan
    • Call 717.815.1309 and leave a message with your name, phone number, and the referred student's full name. Please spell it out if it would help with clarification.
    • Stop by the Admissions Office and tell a staff member. Make sure you mention the Refer a Spartan contest and leave your contact information.

    * A complete application means all entries have been filled out with accurate information. An official transcript and official test scores are not required to enter the contest, but they are required by York College in order to render an enrollment decision.

    The completed application must have been filed on or after December 11, 2017, to be eligible.

  • Rules
    • You must contact the Admissions Office before midnight on January 16, 2017 in order to be eligible. Please include
      • The first AND last name of the referred student*. (We won't be able to guess!)
      • Your name
      • Optional: How you know the person (high school classmate, family member, Quidditch teammate)
      • Incomplete entries won't be considered valid.
    • The referred student must be a new applicant - it can't be a friend you referred a few months ago who applied earlier this fall (but we appreciate it!). Previous York College students, students who have already applied to York College, or current York College students are not eligible.
    • Only current York College students are eligible to enter the contest. Students working in the Admissions Office or interning with the Admissions Office are not eligible.
    • The drawing is random. A student may only win one gift card.
    • Each successful applicant referred equals one entry. Get several students to apply to increase your chances of winning!
    • The bookstore gift cards can not be exchanged or returned for cash.

    * Referred student means a high school senior or a student at another college or university who applies to York College for the first time between December 11, 2017 and Jan. 15, 2018. The student does not need to be accepted in order to be considered a valid entry, but the application must be submitted by Jan. 15, 2018.
