Letter of recommendation Guidance:
Please note the following guidelines on "How to Invite Reference/Recommender?"
A letter of recommendation is required for a complete application. The recommender must not be related to you. The recommendation form must be submitted before or by the deadline.
To give your recommender the maximum amount of time to submit his/her recommendation, you should enter all information for your recommender (name and e-mail) as early as possible. The application system will remind you to "Invite References" until your recommender has been invited. It will then generate an e-mail to your recommender notifying him/her of your application and request for his/her recommendation. For assistance with references, please see the attached supporting document to the right.
If you have any questions, please email Jeff Darden II
