Recommendations

What does my counselor need to make a college recommendation?

Your counselor will need several things: 

  • An official transcript (request in the counseling office; cost: $3.00) 
  • The recommendation form (if applicable) 
  • A resume of activities and honors 
  • The name of 2 or 3 teachers I can use as a reference for additional information 
  • An envelope (or, at the least, the address so I will know where to send the recommendation)

 

May I have a copy of the recommendation?

The recommendations we provide are "closed" recommendations, and are sealed. If you need to include a copy of the recommendation with your materials, please include that in your request, and the recommendation letter will be marked as a "closed recommendation" and sealed.
