During the year many students will need staff recommendations for special programs, awards, scholarships, colleges, and employment. In order to process requests promptly, students are required to complete a Recommendation Request Form.
If requesting a recommendation, the student must first speak to the instructor to ensure that he or she feels comfortable writing a recommendation. If so, the student will complete the Recommendation Request Form and must be sure to include all requested information. If a form is not filled out appropriately, it will not be processed. Students should check back with the faculty member to ensure the recommendation has been completed by the deadline.
It takes time for a faculty member to write a strong recommendation. Therefore, a minimum of two weeks between the time the form is submitted and the time the recommendation must be mailed is required.
