Letters of Recommendation

Counselor Recommendation & School Report 

If you are applying to a school that requires a school report form and/or counselor recommendation, please read the following. This applies most commonly to schools using Common App, SENDedu, or The Coalition Application. 

  • First, add your counselor as a Recommender in the platforms you are using. Be sure to sign your FERPA waiver! 
  • Second, confirm if you are applying to a school that requires a counselor recommendation.  
  • Third, only a handful of schools require a Counselor Letter of Recommendation. If this is the case, please complete your individual counselor's letter of recommendation form (see below for links) and include a list of the schools that require a customized letter from your counselor. This must be received at least 10 working days prior to your deadline*. 

Please Note: You must give counselors a MINIMUM of 10 working days prior to your first due date to complete any required actions. Last-minute requests will not be moved ahead of other students who came first. Please carefully plan for deadlines to avoid unnecessary issues. 

*Due to the quick turnaround time, for October 15th deadlines, you must invite your counselor and complete the form (if needed) by October 7th.
