  • Letters of Recommendation

    Letters of recommendation (LOR) are an important part of the college application process.  Each school will have their own procedure for submitting and deadlines for LORs.

    To get a letter of recommendation:

    1. Ask a teacher/counselor/sponsor/coach that has taught you in class or knows you well.
    2. Ask them at least ten calendar days prior to the deadline for submission.
    3. Provide them a list of your academic/extra-curricular/community/work accomplishments (see resources)
    4. Follow up by writing the person who writes the letter a thank you note.
