Recommendations

The application requires letters from three persons qualified to evaluate the applicant's professional,  ethical, and academic qualifications for graduate study. It is suggested that the applicant present a combination of professional and academic  references. The written references will be used exclusively for purposes of admission to the School of Education.

If you chose the online letters of recommendation option when you submitted your application, your recommenders will receive an email with instructions for submitting the recommendation online. (If your recommenders say they didn't receive the email, please have them check their junk mail folders. If they can't locate it, you can re-send from your activity status page.) You can check the status of each letter on your activity status page. You can send them email reminders, change the names submitted, and see when the letters have been submitted to us. 

Only one letter is required for College Teaching Certificate applicants.

If you did not select the online recommendation option, or submitted a paper application, you will have to complete the top portion of the Recommendation form and send to each of your references. Each reference should complete the form and attach his/her letter to the Recommendation Form, place in an envelope, seal and sign his/her signature across the back. The letter can then be sent to the student to include with other application materials, or can be sent directly to the School of Education.
