Recommendations

Letters of reference can be submitted electronically within your application via the  Apply Yourself web site. Impactful and quality letters of recommendation include those from: individuals qualified to evaluate your capacity for graduate work, or a faculty member from your major field at your last school attended as a full-time student. Preferably, these would be academic references in your major field, those persons who can comment specifically on your qualifications relevant to the pursuit of advanced degrees such as supervising managers or colleagues. Applicants must electronically submit a minimum of two reference letters as part of the online admissions application process. 

Please note that we will not evaluate your submitted application until all components are completed. Traditionally, candidates' applications are incomplete due to missing letters of recommendation. We encourage you to remind your references to complete them as soon as possible.
