Frequently Asked Questions

I referred a friend in 2019 and they attended a full-time CAT program. Am I eligible to claim this referral for payment?

While we appreciate your referral and encourage you to continue referring suitable candidates to our full-time programs, this offer is not retroactive and will only apply to new referrals made on or after January 15th, 2023.

What if two different people claim a referral of a new student? Can both Referrers receive payment?

We love when Graduates and students are passionate about promoting the quality of our programs and this instance reflects that. However, in this case, only the first referral received would be eligible for payment.

What if I refer a person and they decide to cancel before starting their program. Am I still eligible to receive payment on this person?

While we appreciate your referral and the interest it created, payments will only be processed when the Referee attends the full-time program for which they are registered. Those that cancel their contract before starting will not be eligible for Referee payments.

How do I make sure I am approved to participate in this program as a Referrer?

We’re glad that you’re excited to participate! To confirm your Referrer eligibility, please reach out to our Marketing Department at

What if the person I refer to apply was previously speaking with a Program Advisor at CAT, but isn’t any more?
