 Program Guidelines

Definition of a “New Customer”: A parent, guardian and/or independent student who agrees to use the services of Get College Going. A “new customer” must sign an Advising Service Agreement.

Eligible Referrers:  Current clients and non-clients can participate in the program. “A referral is generally a parent of a grandchild, sibling, niece/nephew, relative, friend, colleague or employee.

No Limit: There is no limit on the number of referrals that a Referrer can make. However, if the total sum of the Account Credits earned creates a negative balance, the Program will revert to a Pay Forward Program. All Credits are applied towards Consulting Service Fees and maintain assessed and due from the identified Authorized Payer disclosed on the Consulting Service Agreement.

How to Receive Your Credit: Once a referral is provided, Get College Going will contact the individual to discuss the benefits and services. Upon obtaining a signed Advising Service Agreement from the “New Customer”, a Referral – Account Credit will be authorized.  An email will be sent to the Referrer to confirm that the Referral – Account Credit has been issued. The Referrer can contact Get College Going at any time to check the status of their referral.
