Letters of Recommendation

Generally, departments/programs require three (3) letters of recommendation. Check the department directory listing for specific requirements.

The most important aspect of letters of recommendation is that they be completed by individuals who are in a position to analyze your academic ability and potential for success in a rigorous graduate program.

The following contact information will be requested for each recommender:

  • First and last name
  • Phone number
  • Title
  • Institution or business name
  • Institutional or professional email address
