Letters of Recommendation
The Graduate School's (TGS) admission committees are interested in letters of recommendation from those who are most able to assess your academic and research abilities in areas related to your field of study. Letters of recommendation are very important to the evaluation process, so choose your recommenders wisely!
When considering a recommender, give some thought to the following questions:
- Does the faculty in the program to which you are applying know your letter writers?
- Will they write fair and thoughtful recommendations for you?
- Can they speak to your academic research and accomplishments and your potential for graduate study?
TGS requires a minimum of two letters of recommendation. Some departments may require more than two letters, so please consult your specific program’s website to determine if additional letters are necessary.
NOTE: All letters of recommendation must be submitted through the online application.
