Don’t think you know any potential Shimer students? We bet they’re closer than you think. They could be relatives, neighbors, co-workers, the siblings or children of your friends, or friends of friends.
Applicants referred by alumni typically complete applications, are admitted, and enroll at much higher rates than students who come from any other source. Hearing about your experience at Shimer and the difference it made in your life can be very compelling for both students and their parents.
The Office of Admission will waive the application fee for any applicant referred to Shimer by alumni. Additionally, admitted students who were referred by alumni will qualify for a $1,000 Shimer grant to help cover the cost of tuition.
