A Note About Recommenders

We recognize that many Recommenders are not receiving the automated email as intended.  Academic and Additional Recommenders who have not yet started or submitted their recommendations will be emailed a generic form for submission as a workaround.  Please note: student names will not be included in the email.  Please follow up with your recommenders to confirm that they know who the recommendation request is for.  Additionally, academic and additional recommenders received different forms that can’t be shared from the recommender to the recommender. If a recommender has an issue, please have them reach out to us directly!
