Recommendation Letter Request Form

The HSER Standards and Progression Committee requires all students requesting a Letter of Recommendation to submit the following materials using the form below, as well as participate in a face-to-face interview with Committee members.

Required Materials:

  • Professional Letter of Intent/Statement of Purpose
  • Up-to-date Curriculum Vitae/Resume
  • College Transcript (Unofficial Transcript is fine)

Once the materials are received and reviewed by the Committee, you will be contacted regarding the next available interview date. A face-to-face interview will not only allow the faculty to ask you targeted questions to get to know more about your goals, but will also provide you with critical interview practice by utilizing standard graduate and professional interview questions. After the interview, the Committee will make a decision on a level of recommendation.

Additional Important Information:

  • Requests must be received at least 45 days before they are due. If you do not submit the request well in advance, you may risk missing the deadline.
  • For students that anticipate a summer deadline (prior to mid-August), you will need to meet with the Committee no later than May.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to monitor Letter of Recommendation deadlines.
  • After the interview, all letter requests must be initiated through the Common Application System for your desired program. We cannot submit the Letter of Recommendation until this step has been completed.
