Letters of Recommendation
Students may ask faculty, staff, supervisors, or others to write letters of recommendation for a variety of reasons, including employment and internship opportunities. For assistance with letter guidelines, format, and content, the National Association of Colleges and Employers offers information and samples.
Faculty and staff writing a letter of recommendation for a student's Credential File* are asked to use Career Services' online Letter of Recommendation Form, available by clicking here. All confidential letters must be e-mailed by the faculty or staff member to email@example.com.
For a complete, step-by-step tutorial on how to access, complete, and send your letter of recommendation, please view this video.
For the online form to work properly and accept the required signatures using the instructions provided, it is strongly advised to open and complete the form using Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 11. Do not open the form using your Internet Browser. A free download is available here.
*Please communicate first with the student to ensure he/she has opened a Credential File with Career Services before sending a letter of recommendation.
