Letters of Recommendation Process

Letters of recommendation are done electronically.

List your references in the online application for admission. A recommendation request will be sent, by email, to each of your references. The email will include your name with a link to each department's electronic recommendation form. The request can be sent at any time providing you meet department deadlines. You can change references or send a reminder through your application.

Contact your references ahead of time, so that they can expect your request for recommendation.

After you have submitted your application, you and your department can view receipt of your recommendations through the online status system.
