Continue the Tradition

Become a Legacy Family

If you have a family member (child, sibling, grandchild, niece, nephew or cousin) involved in the college search, encourage them to consider your alma mater — Johnson & Wales University! Legacy distinction makes your student eligible for benefits including a $4,000 JWU tuition scholarship and gives your family unique status in the JWU community.

Discover what's new at JWU, including academic programs, campuses, student opportunities and more. You may be amazed to learn how much we’ve grown! If you haven’t been to campus in a while, we strongly encourage you to visit and see the exciting opportunities available to your student.

Applying for Legacy Enrollment

To be considered for legacy eligibility, students must be a child, sibling, grandchild, niece, nephew or cousin of a Johnson & Wales graduate. It's important to note their legacy relationship on the application. Encourage your student to get started by completing an admissions application today!

Student Alumni Association

One of the best ways for Legacy students to get involved with the university is to join the Student Alumni Association (SAA). The SAA provides exclusive networking opportunities with alumni, personal and professional development programs and volunteer opportunities. Please contact Lauren Anderson, alumni relations manager, for more information about SAA.
