    @ NFerizgordon,

    What a caseload of seniors you have! No, we will not ask those who have registered with us, how they were referred. Your link must be used as the "sign-up link" - it includes a special code tied directly to you. As of yet, we have not experienced any issues with the link not working, but email us directly at info@nyccollegeline.org , and we're happy to walk you through the process step by step to ensure your link has generated.

    I really need them! I have 733 seniors! 80% Free and Reduced Lunch, but not sure the link generated properly...Will they be asked if they were referred, if the link doesn't work?

  • joconnell2

    Awesome opportunity. Thanks. I've got 791 seniors, over 200 of whom have free lunch, so THANK YOU!

    The contest ends Friday, October 31st at 11:59pm EST. Entering is really simple. Once you sign in to your NYC College Line account, go to your profile page. Use the "View My Profile" link at the top of the page. On your profile page you will see a menu item labeled "Raffle Contest" - click on it. The Raffle Contest page will include all the information you need to create your personal link. Just scroll down to the middle of the page until you reach the pink colored tile that reads "Generate Your Own NYC College Line link to Start!". Click the button that says "Generate". And that's all to it. Once your link is generated, you can copy and paste it into email addresses or blank word docs and share. Or you can click the social share buttons to share also.

    If you still are having trouble, email us with a phone number and we'll walk you through it on the phone. We're at: info@nyccollegeline.org

    @mishy215 -
    Right here on this blog post, at the top there blue button labled "Sign In and Enter Contest". If you click that it will automatically take you to your profile page where there is a "Raffle Contest" menu option. Click Raffle Contest, scroll to the middle of that page and in the pink tile click the dark blue button that reads "Generate". That will automatically create your personal URL. Once your personal link is created, you can copy and paste it (Ctrl+C to copy, and Ctrl+V to paste) into an email or word document and share. Or you can use the Facebook or Twitter icons to share on your personal social accounts.

    If you are still experiencing trouble, email us with your contact number. We'll call you and walk you through it. We're at: info@nyccollegeline.org
