Graduate Survey Giveway Rules
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. This giveaway program (“Giveaway”) is designed to encourage eligible graduates to complete and return the Graduate Follow-Up Survey or the Apprenticeship Follow-Up Survey. The Giveaway begins at 8 a.m. on Monday, February 1, 2016 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. CT on Sunday, February 5, 2017 (the “Promotion Period”). Only invited Madison College program graduates, post-baccalaurete Paralegal certificate recipients & apprenticeship completers from the 2015-2016 academic year will be allowed to participate in and are eligible to enter this Giveaway. Each survey that is completed & returned by mail or telephone will count as a single entry in the Giveaway; each survey that is completed online will count as two entries in the Giveaway.
EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE REGARDING SURVEY SUBMISSION ONLINE:
Due to limitations of the online survey collection system, the following graduates will not be able to complete their survey using the online method:
- Any graduate who completed more than one program at Madison College during a single semester in the 2015-2016 academic year (who will hereafter be called “multiple majors”)
These graduates will still be able to complete their surveys by mail or telephone. (A representative from Madison College will make up to two attempts to contact non-responders by telephone during the Promotion Period.) To compensate for the lack of an online submission method, each survey completed by a multiple major will automatically count as two entries towards the Giveaway, regardless of method of submission. For example, if a multiple major graduated from two programs and completed both surveys, it will count as four entries in total.
DEADLINE: To enter the Giveaway, users must (1) complete the survey with all required information, (2) submit the survey by mail, telephone, or online during the Promotion Period. All entries must be submitted and received by 11:59:59 p.m. CT on February 5, 2017. Any survey response received after that date will not be eligible for the drawing. The drawing will be held on or about February 28, 2017. During the "Promotion Period", the Madison College Institutional Research & Effectiveness Department will make several attempts to contact and inform the graduates of the survey and Giveaway.
GIVEAWAY SPONSORS: The Giveaway is being conducted by the Institutional Research & Effectiveness Department of Madison Area Technical College. The grand prize is underwritten by the Institutional Research Support Fund of the Madison College Foundation. At the end of the Promotion Period, one winner will be chosen at random from among all eligible entries received during the Period. The drawing will be conducted by the Madison College Institutional Research & Effectiveness Department, whose decisions are final and binding in all matters relating to this Giveaway.
