Letters of Recommendation
We require three letters of recommendation for degree programs*, and these can be academic or professional. If you’re still a student, at least one should be academic. If you’re a working professional, it’s fine for all three to be professional.
When choosing academic recommendation providers, don’t simply choose those professors who gave you the highest grades. Instead, think about selecting those who can give insight into your preparedness for the program. Give them an overview of the program, along with a copy of your resume and an understanding of your goals.
Recommendations must be submitted electronically via the online application. You will be required to enter the contact information of your recommenders (including email address), and the recommenders will, in turn, be sent a link from which they access the online recommendation form and be given the opportunity to upload a letter in support of your application.
*Non-degree applicants are required to submit two letters of recommendation.
You can submit your application if your recommendation providers haven't yet submitted their recommendations. Our online application system will continue to match your material after submission.
