Requests for Letters of Recommendation


  Here are some tips for you when approaching a professor for a letter of recommendation:

  1. Give the professor plenty of time to write.  Two weeks is a good rule of thumb.
  2. Write a note with information relevant to your application.
  3. Provide the year, course name and section # or professor’s class.
  4. Bring any specific forms you may need filled out by the professor.
