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.

When you list your recommenders in the online 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 application checklist.) You can check the status of each letter on your checklist after you submit your application.  You can also send your recommenders email reminders and add or delete recommenders from the checklist. 

Only one letter is required for 5th Year program applicants.

Applicants should not upload letters of recommendation to the application.  Letters of recommendation should come directly from the recommender - not from the student.
